    ... to plan.

    We did make it to the Bridge to Nowhere. This is a great structure which was built after WWII as that part of the country opened up to returned servicemen. But after landslides kept closing the road, the NZ government stopped maintaining it. So now it's a bridge with virtual jungle at either end.
