Fraser Car Club – Auckland Country Adventure

By November 21, 2011No Comments

Great day, great weather and great bunch of cars and people.!! 10 cars turned up, which was fantastic to see and all got off on the nav run on time.

Getting there in the order they left,  was however another story. The last car leaving, Steve and Ade in 0 KIDS arrived first! Followed by a short time later by Scott and Ida in DMOFSR with Andrew following closely (without a navigator). Then there was a very large gap but eventually all arrived within 40 minutes. Not helped by the fact at that one of the final road signs had been broken off so a number whistled right past the second-to-final turning and did a few Km’s extra and discovered some really tight roads which we investigated on leaving. A few Km’s up this road are some impressive rock cliffs which were used for some scenes in LOR. (I am told).

So…. some un-programmed sightseeing around Pukekohe, a few double backs here and there, but only one car needed to resort to the Parachute instructions, all in all a good effort.

Weather being very warm at the end resulted in a pleasant picnic and a catch up. Hope everyone enjoyed themselves.
