Day 02 – Molesworth Station to Rangiora

8:59 pm Motorbike/Motorcycle, New Zealand

The washing Rebecca had done the night before was still not dry, so we put it on a clothesline and hung it up in the Dodge camper to dry while travelling.

We returned to Hanmer Springs via Jollies Pass.

Once we got into Hanmer Springs, we saw this snow vehicle.

We rode up the dirt road beside the Hanmer Springs bridge, and the scenery was stunning.

We stopped at a farm in route to Rangiora.

Rebecca and I then headed down to Christchurch for a quick detour, as the rear seal on the final drive was starting to leak.  We arrived at the BMW dealer at 4:00pm, and were lucky that he had the seal in stock.  However, as it was Christmas Eve, his workshop staff had already taken off for their holidays.  The dealership was going to close at 5:00pm, and not reopen till the 5th of January.  We were very fortunate to get the part!  We decided to fit it ourselves the next day.
