New Treads For The Rover + Coastal Pacific Train To Christchurch

Tyreland in Blenheim, the best. They ordered four new Pirellis for the Rover that will arrive Tuesday.

Meantime, we'll take the Coastal Pacific Train from Blenheim to Christchurch (and back), returning Wednesday to a freshly shod vehicle. But beyond that, manager Mike offered to come in on Sunday, a day off, store the Rover in the shop, and take us to the train station.

I keep telling you, Kiwis are a remarkably generous breed.

Taking the Coastal Pacific is the only time-sensitive objective on our trip because it stops running May 3. We knew we had to try for it after seeing this vid at Rob's NZ blog.
