|Luckily the snow held off, but the roads were awful on the steep sections out of Dunedin. We drove for a long time, stopping for lunch in Timaru. We had also managed to arrange a sale for our camping equipment by putting up a note in the supermarket in Ashburton. So on our way through we stopped off at the girls work to do the exchange. She had bought our 2 tents, cooking gear and loads of other bits and pieces for $150, she was really nice and excited about using it, so we were really pleased to sell it to her. We then drove on up to Christchurch to spend the night with Jo and Dave.
