One step closer! After leaving Wellington on a wet, windy morning Mother nature started to smile down on me letting the sun break through as I crossed over to the South Island the final stretch of dirt to the finish line. I took the Maungatapu track into Nelson after arriving in Picton after a suggestion from Joe a local motorcyclist I met on the ferry. I feel like I'm dragging my feet a little but it's awesome to catch up with family along the way down yet with Mother nature being a little on the moody side of late and treating me to one of my coldest rainy days I've had in quite a while yesterday in Hamner I'm pretty aware I don't have all the time in the world. The forecast is looking good for the next few days so I'll take advantage of it while I can and get a little bit of fishing in before I head on into Christchurch. I went to the museum in Wellington and they had one of the Britton motorcycles there. If you haven't heard about them or the story behind it give it a Google.
