Another long weekend mission, planned to attack as many hashes as possible over the three day weekend.
Here in the Commonwealth Country of New Zealand, we celebrate the birthday of Queen Elizabeth by having a day off. After visiting the local internet cafe in Turangi, found a hash which wasn't too far away from the route home back to Auckland.
Have car, will follow map to destination. Unfortunately we were thwarted by a Permit Only Sign, only 900 m from the hash. Not having the appropriate, aforementioned permit, we decided not to risk it as could see a residence in the distance. First fail for Greenslime. However we did stumble across a beautiful set of waterfalls that we probably would never have come across, so not all was not wasted.
Taupo to Putaruru, SH 28 onto SH 29, over the Kaimai Ranges, right onto McLaren Falls road, then right onto Omanawa Road, follow till end.
| Greenslime earned the No trespassing consolation prize
