It sure did - wow - it sounded like machine gun fire and now we have an 'outside' feature to our conservatory roof! Excellent indoor/outdoor flow as real estate agents would say

Default The Wellington Thread

as CC has one thought we new Wellingtonians (? ) should have one.

Being very new to Wellington I personally would like to know about area's of interest to visit with the family say within an hour and a half drive/train. Please avoid SH2 Rimutaka Hill Road, be there, done that, felt the nausea

On one of our scout arounds we stumbled across Staglands so have that marked in the sat nav for a future visit. Also got the nature reserve up in Waikanae, Can't remember the name.

Anyway you get the drift anything you think could be helpful, fun, exciting blah blah blah......

What's wrong with the twisty hill. It has to be one of the most exciting roads to do in NZ, (at a bit of a lick), and especially on two wheels (Scream if you want to faster!)
