The Waikaremoana Road

Highway 38...
Navrilov: It takes 4 hours to go 160 kilometers.
Neo: Twisty?
Watch for wandering
cows and horses
Navrilov: Very. And gravelly. Slips, Rocks. And wandering animals.
Neo: Desolate and dangerous compared to the main road. So why did you?
Navrilov: Spectacular. I’d never done it.
Neo: You prepared?
Navrilov: Sleep. Food. Tools. Insurance.
Not for the nervous.
Not if you’re pressed for time.
Not if you’re worried about dings on your car.
But to see New Zealand vegetation before farming landscape wiped it out.
And to have done another thing on the bucket list.

The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss, but that it is too low and we reach it. Michelangelo
