Lib Co: John Stavert
Update: Peter Jr.
The Truck left Auckland at 3 am this morning on their journey south, plenty of fog around to I might add,
George our driver just cruised down, got to Waiouru about 7.40am where the birds had water placed in front of them for about 45 minutes apparently not many drank but some did put their heads out, he is now south of Levin and nearly at the Motel where he will be staying,
The birds will have food placed in front of them for a while and then replaced with water which will be in front of them for the rest of the day, plenty of time to figure it all out I hope.
All the best for tomorrow.
