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.
