10-Feb-2005 -- Visiting this confluence means one stop during our journey throughout this wonderful country New Zealand. We prepared ourselves with sun-glasses and sun-hats and lots of sun-lotion. You never know how wet it will be or how long you will sweat in the sun.

This time we saw very much farmland lying before us and so we decided to ask for permission. We met Fife, a neighbour of the owner and he was very helpfull and interested in our survey. The track was difficult because of a high, steep hill, which was very grown over with wood and bushes. On top of all the reception was bad either. We did as good as we could and of course the way back was much easier because of a sheep-track we used as well.

A bonus of this trip was a good cup of tea and some biscuits at Fife's house afterwards and we had a very nice chat with him. Thank`s very much for that, Fife!
