1692. The Forgotten World Highway
© Bruce Goodman 15 December 2019

Today’s story is a photo-story. The story is in the first two photos (in case you miss it!) They are taken five minutes from where I live, and several meters only from each other! Do fill-up before you see this sign!

The Forgotten World Highway is a pretty rough road of about 150 kilometres (about 93 miles) going from Stratford (where I live) to a town called Taumarunui. It takes about 2½ hours – provided you don’t run out of gas! It’s a popular tourist route. Below are some photos to give you a taste of why it’s advisable to “fill-up” the car before leaving. (And there’s no cell phone coverage!)
