141,921km. Fuel up after ROCC trip, a long and slow trip back from Cromwell - Travelling back on Easter Monday, bad idea. Long tailbacks through Lindis pass, along SH8 to Tekapo, and Fairlie, and Geraldine, then a really slow piece through Tinwald and Ashburton. 10:30 am to 6pm for a 350(ish) km trip. Meh! Car ran perfectly, smooth and comfortable, solid water temperature, and oil pressure. Roof off all the way home. Fantastic

Fill up in Oamaru, after lovely drive up from Mosgil, lunch at scotts and wander around the Victorian precinct of Oamaru. Then dropping into Midway motel to say we weren't going to stay and would head for home. Home by 6:30 pm, take away curry from Corriander's - sooper. Roads very quiet, so an easy trip - stopped in Ashvegas BP for a cup of tea and break. Having a break was such a good idea.

136, 944km. Taken a while to get through this tank. A few fun blats around, out to Ruapuna for the Skope classic, a few Port Hill fangs, and a few sunny day drives with Laura, who has driven it a few times now and is getting more confident. And while Andy Casson, on his and Derryn's visit to NZ in February. He enjoyed it, but I think he likes his Boxster more.

Included a trip to muscle car madness in Rangiora (30 degree plus day) and a seriously good fang up and across the Port Hills with a VW R32 - he was braver around the blind bends then me, but the MR2 was quicker on the long downhill and more visually open bits, not bad for a 29 old car :-)
