Title: Show us your neck of the woods
Post by: Bloopy on July 11, 2021, 08:47:49 PM
While everyone's rarely travelled beyond their area at times, let alone around the world, perhaps like me you have some photos of your immediate vicinity to share. Prefer to see photos you've taken if possible. Images don't stretch the whole page any more, but I suggest making them about 1024 pixels wide so phone users aren't scrolling across for miles.

I've been temporarily living back where I grew up (Porirua NZ), and walked a bunch of paths I'd barely set foot on, including during sunrise hours, something I haven't always been out and about for thanks to insomnia. Caught some cool lighting in this first one:

Born under a bridge, banished to an island and now put out to pasture. ;D

Last year I performed the rare action of walking past the building I was born in (Wellington NZ), so took a photo. My spawn point, to use video game terminology:

Yesterday.
We've been in drought for 5 years and we still are.
Technically it's a green drought at the moment.
We have surpassed last year's total rainfall this year but have no idea if that's going to continue.
We're hoping of course.
That dam is just shy of 8m deep in the middle and we still have another metre and a half till it's full.
But at least we have some water I can use.

Hardly ever see snakes. I could probably count on one hand the number we've seen in the last 8 years.
We have horses and dogs who are always running and jumping all over the place. Snakes don't like the vibrations so tend to stay away.


And judging by the long white clouds in your photo, murph fan 51, it has to be a Kiwi town.   ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for this thread and opportunity to share, Bloops.

Every day when I have a chance I go for a walk.  I start out of the peaceful confines of the backyard at V8CFL Headquarters.

(https://i.postimg.cc/q7hM0pp4/Backyard.jpg)
If you look real close you can see Dot the Cat, Matriarch of the Yard, low in the grass.

I then go up to the corner and turn left, crossing over Interstate 94.

(https://i.postimg.cc/NfD0kNNq/Chicago.jpg)
1.5 hours west to Chicago.  Off to the left and up the berm is actually the back of our backyard.

(https://i.postimg.cc/bwvwCQMG/Detroit.jpg)
3 hours east to Detroit

The cars and trucks were actually sounding their horns as I took the pictures.  Maybe they though I was going to jump?

And then down the hill over Hickory Creek and back up the other side.

Check out the black and white sign on the left.  Only in America.  We are world's apart, gentlemen, and we deal with this issue every day.

Believe it or not, the guy who owns/runs the gun shop used to work where I work.  He has made quite a good living selling heat to the locals.

Went for a swim in Lake Michigan (Chicago side) late May... certainly got the nipples hard.

We have gun shops too of course, though surely far less with more restrictions on what you can buy. Not many segments in "gun fails" videos on YouTube will be from down under. Looks like there's about 1 gun shop per 100,000 people around these parts.

There's one not too far from my sister's place in Melbourne. I went in there once just to see what sorts of clothes and other things they had. Some time later there was an armed robbery there (https://www.theage.com.au/national/victoria/man-charged-following-thornbury-gun-shop-robbery-was-a-shooting-victim-in-2016-20180206-h0uod9.html), so I figure I have no reason to be in there again. How many guns did they steal? 37 (https://www.v8central.com/index.php?topic=49.0).  ;D

I thought I would add a couple more, I took these photos last year in Level 4 lockdown, a short walk up the road to see… an empty motorway. Very strange.

Well, this is just MY opinion, but once you get West of the Mississippi River and into the plains, you can start in Kansas and make the big circle - Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming....... and without state border markings you'd swear you never left Kansas.  But I'll tip my cap the folks out that way.  That is where the crops are grown and harvested.  The backbone of the country.

Can’t disagree with you. Did the road trip from Kansas to Denver a few times, and later on Kansas to Chicago.

Hahaha, funny you mention DEKA, the company I worked for was a heavy vehicle driver training company called DECA (Driver Education Centre of Australia), they had to change their name when they went into NZ to DECA Training so as to not confuse with the chain of stores called DEKA, I have actually been into the DEKA in Rotorua. They went into Ngongotaha because of the amount of logging trucks there, they reckon it was the best place to put themselves.  I employed all their trainers.  Then the Japanese economy collapsed in the '90's and weren't buying timber so the whole outfit fell on its arse - they spent hundreds of thousands setting it up, buying logging trailer, sending truck over there etc

Rotorua. a.k.a. RotoVegas

Born here and home for 50 of my 59 years.

The (now) famous Mount Ngongotaha in the top left. The island in the middle is a plug of cooled magma.

Lake Rotorua is surrounded by hills that are the rim of a caldera. A volcano that erupted about 220,000 years ago. The city sits inside the rim and enjoys a sulphur smell the locals rarely notice, steam oozing from the ground in various spots. Small earthquakes (they say the earths crust is too thin & soft here for pressure to build so we consider ourselves lucky that pressure is released through small earthquakes rather than large. But I think Christchurch thought they were safe from a big one.) But it's all good because we've got no snakes or animals trying to kill us!

NZ's most popular tourist destination with around 3.5 million visitors a year (pop. 70,000). Plenty of hotels & restaurants etc. 3 hotels currently being used as isolation (that's iso for your Aussies!) facilities for arrivals to the country. The attractions are geothermal (geysers etc), Maori culture, lakes, mountain biking & a lot of other man made activities designed to extract the tourist $.
When covid hit we thought the city would be stuffed without international visitors who make up about half the 3.5m. But it turns out that when Kiwi's can't fly - they drive to Rotorua for breaks. So it's going quite well.


Part of the city, taken from the south looking north. Apologies for the image size. I think it might be quite large.

Lake Tarawera, one of my favourite lakes for boating and trout fishing. A 20 minute drive away. Mount Tarawera erupted big time in 1886 killing over a hundred that lived nearby. In one part (imaginatively named hot water beach in true NZ style) you can catch a trout on one side of the boat and cook it on the other in very hot water emerging from the shore.
(https://www.henrymagazine.nz/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Tarawera-1-1.jpg)


I get my summer motorsport fix at Paradise Valley Speedway on the edge of town.
(https://cdn.eventfinda.co.nz/uploads/locations/transformed/125620-3925-34.jpg)


Everyone's here to see Superstocks. A full contact class where the aim is just as much to finish first as it is to stop others finishing first. The local team (who last year changed their flag from the confederate flag to a new home grown design) were crowned team champions at the last Palmerston North teams champs. An event rated more highly than the NZ teams champs. Teams racing is considered the pinnacle of stockcar racing and is something to behold.

I've only been up Mount Tarawera twice, but it's probably my 2nd favourite place in the world. Descending into the crater is like stepping onto another planet and the loose scree makes it a lot of fun.

To be a bit of a cliche, 1st is Milford Sound and I've only been there once. It's further from civilisation, and something carved out by glaciers just seems cooler, somehow...

I vaguely recall hearing some advertising for or hearing about a truck driver training organisation in these parts. I don't recognise the name or colours. My brother-in-law may. He lived here then and was a truckie. Now in Brisbane working for Sims Metal after quite a few years driving around Australia.

Rotovegas is such a cool place. We head there every year for a short holiday. Have always stayed at the Rydges but is it a MIQ place now? Been to most of the thermal parks around the area - Te Puia and Waimungu Volcanic Valley were my favourite.

I find it funny, there’s a house at an intersection on Lake Road that has their fence steaming every time I drive past, and part of the fence is charred  ;D

I was very lucky as a kid my parents took me up Mt Tarawera and much like Bloops slid down into the crater, this was before it was guided tours only.

Yep. Rydges is off limits. I did Mt Tarawera a few times too. Another tricky one is Mt Edgecumbe which has a lot of loose scoria on the outside. Bloody hard to climb up.

For those that have been here before, we are spending $40m revamping the lake front area. $20m of that is a pre-last election bribe from the government and $20m courtesy of local ratepayers. A lake edge boardwalk has just been opened. It's actually quite nice and I see potential. A young kid has laready fallen off into the lake. https://www.rotoruanz.com/zh-cn/stories-articles/lakefront-selfies-could-win-you-prezzies

The most photographed building in NZ, the bath house in the government gardens sometimes referred to as the Rotorua museum is still fenced off with earthquake strengthening work going on. The blue baths building has recently been closed due to earthquake risk. The performaing arts centre is still undergoing earthquake strengthening and upgrading. There's a fair bit going on!

Even the Ngongotaha roundbout is getting an upgrade!

And thanks for showing my what it is like filling up on the road, Trev!

Great local music club here in Porirua. Last year I went to a bit of socially distanced seated live music at Wellington bars during 'level 2' but it hasn't appealed to me yet this time around. Nice to have the alternative of private clubs/functions where the seated rule doesn't apply.
