Leaving Te Anau at 10am we set of on the 149km journey to Invercargill. Travelling on SH94 back the way we came the day before. Through Mossburn and past the wind farm mentioned in yesterday's instalment, at Lumsden we turned right on to SH6.

Samples of legs and loins were bagged and some would be frozen immediately while other would be aged in a chiller for 14 days first.
Hop to the next entry (coming soon!) to read about my long Easter weekend ...
