We're on our way.... almost

Saturday 16th Jan 2021
After months of preparation and planning, packing and configuring our camper we were on our way heading to the ferry terminal for a 5 p.m. sailing.. 

Well we made it just north of Levin and had some transmission / engine troubles. 

We limped into Levin, parked up near the adventure park so the kids could play and waited for the AA to come and rescue us. 

Sounds a bit stink, but let's count some blessings. 
  • Broke down just prior to the 2hour-before-sailing deadline to change our ferry booking. 
  • AA motorhome plus coverage (free towing) 
  • 12 month mechanical guarantee on the motorhome (free fix)
  • The kids favourite park to play at.
  • A good friend (thanks Gary) who happened to have just purchased a vehicle with enough seats to take the family back to home. 
  • A quiet nights sleep for Robin waiting for the tow truck. 
  • Gary got to share Jesus with a hitchhiker. That wouldn't have happened if we hadn't broken down
  • We broke-down close to home 
  • The biggest blessing was having an extra day to spend time with a dear friend who just lost her hubby.
