Anyone with an eMTB (electric mountain-bike) want to do the Queen Charlotte Trail before December 1st?
The plan is falling into place!
Friday 29 Nov – Drive to Picton and stay in cheap backpackers or other suitable accommodation.
Saturday 30 Nov – Take an early ferry (or water taxi) to Ship Cove and Bike to Portage – 50K
We’ve rented a cool place through Book a Bach that sleeps 4. There’s only two beds but there is space on the couch or floor for a reduced rate. 🙂
Sunday Dec 1 – Bike to Picton: 20K to Anakiwa (on QC Trail) and 20K (on road)
Drive back to Nelson in the afternoon
There is an opportunity to do a little more trail riding on the way from Anakiwa to Picton, depending on how much energy everyone has.
On the 14th November Rosie Barlett, Manager of Parks & Facilities, Nelson City Council wrote the following in response to my queries:
"The Sanctuary has not exercised the right of renewal for the lease where the prefabs sit so this has now expired. Council has given the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary until 31 December 2019 to remove the buildings."
As you can see from the photo I took this morning they are still there! And there is no indication that they are being readied for removal at all! What is going on?
There were several vehicle break-ins in Marybank/Atawhai overnight Monday/Tuesday (9/10th December). Stolen from Wastney Terrace was a very distinctive "Hoodlam/Sea Shepherd" jacket made especially for Sea Shepherd crew members. It is probably the only one on the South Island and also has a sentimental value. I attach the following photos. If seen being worn please contact the Police or if found telephone 5451103. Thanks.
