    I also did it last Friday, coming from Whanganui to Raetihi. A bit of loose metal where they've resealed the road but not swept it properly. One bit at the Whanganui end where a slip has reduced it to one lane, and there was a heavy digger in the middle which had to move so I could get past. Lots of potholes and areas with uneven surfaces. I thoroughly enjoyed it, although the day was a bit too hot. Treat the road with respect, and you should be fine.

    Enjoy the seal while you can.
    Winter slips and washouts hopefully will send that black muck
    to the bottom of the upside down creek.
    Necminit a fucking latte hut will be open on it.

    Did you stop at the Caltex at about 4? We were filling up then.
