Image above and below is Didymo Dave doing his Putin impressions (without a white horse) on the angler access road to Hinemaiaia River.
We hope Dave was getting his hand in as a practice for the Blue Pool Road? After waiting and waiting for the ‘authorities’ – you know who – sometimes locals just have to do it themselves. This might have to happen on the Blue Pool access road as well. The surface erosion and potholes are now so bad we have had to continually warn TRM inmates not to drive their family car up there. They could risk losing an exhaust or in the case of the photo of Shirley Fraser, much more…
Following from TRM Facebook earlier this week: TRM need some help here. Photo is well known reliable contractor (doing his Putin impression) draining another anglers access road. How can we encourage him to fix the Blue Pool access? TRM will pay $100 towards initial inspection and budget. A few truck loads of gravel should do it. Any other donors? (p.s. Don’t tell Shirley we are pinching him for the Tongariro.)
Other anglers comments concur – i.e. From GI: Well done that man! In the case of the Blue Pool access, one would have thought that the commercial interests that use the road would be only too happy to improve their customers experience….
What do you think?
