A trip for the American trucks .

Starting in the North Is and traveling a meandering route south to Edendale near the bottom of the Sth Is.

10 days of travel and a weekend at the crankup, anyone can join at any point of the trip, or just visit for a lunch stop.

Hope you have a great time and a very
Merry Christmas.

TPR57C the land has been severely damaged , long stretches of highway are ruined and will take a very long time to repair properly (years) infrastructure (sewerage , mains water) is a problem in Kaikoura but is being dealt to . Many buildings and homes are structurally damaged , this is going to take years to resolve . It shouldn't , but having experienced the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquakes , I am disappointed to say that is the reality.
Access to Kaikoura via the inland road was a possibility , but there has been a lot of local rain and the broken hillsides are at high risk of further slips , so no one is allowed thru yet.

People are being people , some coping , others traumatized and will have difficulty recovering their sense of equalibrium.

Sadly 2 people lost their lives , one in a house collapse , the other via a medical incident while escaping the home.

On the plus side , the quake was at midnight and few were out on the roads, so no reported incidents.

Choppers have been flying overhead here multiple times a day since the event . The first few were interesting , now , not so much. Interesting how the extra ordinary becomes ordinary .

Thanks for your thoughts.

Sorry to hear what you're going through down there Dusty,living in a pretty stable seismic region myself I will never fully understand what it's like to suffer this. (hopefully!)

Mercifully,loss of life was minimal compared to many other large quakes recently.
The mental scars will no doubt be around for some time though.
Stay safe and good luck with the rebuilding work.
