We are getting questions about the state of the roads, especially the route to Karamea as it is a Compulsory Checkpoint and some may have planned to visit this in conjunction with Haast. The road is currently under managed access so we suggest that you look carefully at the plans you have made and other options you might have to complete your challenge. The long range forecast is also looking like it will be a challenging weekend so pack your wet weather gear!
For those of you wanting to join us at the meet and greet at Dodson Street Brewery, they have kept the place open just for us so come on down and relax and catch up with the rest of us who are embarking on this adventure.
Dodson Street Brewery is located at 1 Dodson Street, Mayfield, Blenheim with a great selection of drinks and food and the owner is a passionate motorcycle rider so we will see you there or at the start on Friday.
