A lucky Lotto punter has won more than $20 million dollars after buying the winning ticket from an Invercargill stationery shop.

It's been awfully quiet........

What a fucking joke! It has taken over 2 bloody hours for which I'm paying for to up load 10 bloody photo's to my SmugMug.

But If I don't go through smugmug I can't then put them up on ADV!

And I'm paying $40 pa to be a member of Smugmug!

Err!!

Anyway lets see how it goes.

Start of Dansey Pass


starting to climb


Drizzling rain,like tis almost of the day


The northern end/start of the Hakata


Top of the Pass looking back south, which I had just come through, some bloody bastard had pinched the sign


But things were looking good the way I was heading



Monument to Mckenzie, it is faded, but I think he might have been a bushranger, it seems to say he was captured here, but escaped the same night. I'll do some research. Generally it was those types who knew the land.



Heading to Arthurs Pass,after the fog.



BTW that black clump in the middle of the road is not a vehicle, its a group of trees as they do down here, to provide protection from the wind. I try to take photo's without other influences, but my camera couldn't distinish it, strange!

Final photo's coming over Arthur's Pass


and into the Westland, or should that be the Wetland



Hope you enjoyed, have lots more but Smugmug is not being kind. I say that politley so as not to really piss her off.

It's a bugger about the weather but you now know why everything is pretty green over here. Hopefully it'll get better weather for you.
Bike looks good too.

Have you tried one of the free pic hosting sites like photobucket as a backup to smugmug? Or is it just a daggy connection?

Have fun on the trip north. If you do get a slot in the Dusty Butt in January we are sailing over 12 Jan & will be touring & camping through a few cool places where you definitely haven't been yet on the way down.

Cheers
Clint

Any pics I want to upload to ADVrider I put on my Facebook page/wall, whatever you call it, then onto ADVrider. Any pics I then don`t need, I delete from Facebook.

Not sure what I hate the most, Facebook or Twitter, imho you are crazy to use either, you are leaving yourself wide open, may as well tell everyone where the backdoor key resides.

Photobucket is crap, try and retrieve a photo stored longer then say 12 mths. Go and read old RR's on ADV and those who have not used Smugmug have lost their photo's. I can go back 5 years when I first started using Smugmug, and all my photo's which number in the thousands, are still there.

(Have fun on the trip north. If you do get a slot in the Dusty Butt in January we are sailing over 12 Jan & will be touring & camping through a few cool places where you definitely haven't been yet on the way down.)

I hope to return to the south to do the DB, but I have no fixed plans after the BMW rally. Anything could happen, who knows? I'm always open to suggestions, and if I get a better proposition. Well! It was not just the fush and chups that I made a beeline to Hokotika for

I have more moves then a chessboard

But I will catch up with you and Rosie

Well its good night from me, will try and add photo's tomorrrow while doing the crossing. Only took 68 today, that was in 5 1/2 hrs travelling time, and only a lazy 450k's.

I just love these northen roads of the South Island, They are the best.

Chris, downsize your pics to less than 500 kb (about screen size) before loading them to Smugmug. Things happen much quicker that way...

Pics don't need to be high res to display on screen (on ADV forum).
