So... The Mini has (finally) arrived in Te Anau.
It all happened in a bit of a rush. We went to Helen Dodson's (Tim Barrow's Mum) birthday, (not specifying age) and were getting ready to leave. We found Dad having a discussion with Pete, Tim's dad. They were discussing the possibility of bringing the Mini down from Dunedin on Pete's trailer.
It all sounded great until we saw the trailer, which was already in Dunedin. It was pretty small! We got Gethin out of bed, (about 1:00 p.m.) and piled back into Pete's truck.
