The West Coast is a particularly special and beautiful part of New Zealand but it is serviced by one main road - State Highway 6. The fact that there is only one road means that there is a lot of traffic on it, and a lot of different types of traffic too - trucks, cars, campervans, motorbikes, bicycles and livestock all use the road at various times. Often the road is narrow with sharp bends, sudden steep inclines and lots of one lane bridges. Generally people are good but driving on SH6 can be a lesson in patience.
In early 2012 Penny & Nairn moved from central Wellington to South Westland. Welcome to the record of their adventures.
