6. Southern Safari: the track ends here

After a day of interesting forest and farm tracks in the mid-Canterbury high country, 4wdNewz called it a day and has withdrawn from the Southern Safari. Long story, best left untold.

• Thanks to the Riverlands Roadhouse truck stop near Blenheim for making facilities available to clean the filthy Jeep for the trip north, and to the Interislander for a great crossing.


  1. You broke something?

    1. Heck no, it's a Jeep and the only thing that breaks is the driver's fuel budget!

  2. Sorry to hear that; was enjoying your posts on the safari. What was the problem?

  3. Am on the trip and just saw this. Bad, bad organisation, long, long delays. We feel like pulling out too. Great views and tracks keep us going.

  4. Has there been anything on this trip in the 4WD magazines?

  5. I just saw why Russ Quinn said about you in Trail Talk. This is the last time Ill ever visit your crap blog. I hope others do the same
