I didn’t take the traditional exit from Queenstown. Instead, I left on the TSS Earnslaw.

The TSS Earnslaw sails on Lake Wakatipu, and people typically just do an out and back trip, maybe with a short stay on the other side of Wakatipu. I made a one way trip with my bike, and got out on the other side for a little middle-of-nowhere riding.

Even if I hadn’t been able to use the boat as a ferry, it would’ve made for a fun little trip. Not only do you get to check out the beautiful area around Queenstown, but if you’re a nerd like me, you can enjoy watching the 102 year old steam engine do it’s thing.

Coal…not exactly green

Once I was off the ship on the other side of Lake Wakatipu, I made my way to Te Anua.

When I arrived in Te Anua, I parked and unloaded my bike, and an hour later, I glanced at it as I walked by, and it looked like the rear tire was a little low. First, I thought it might’ve just been dug into the loose gravel in the parking lot, but upon closer inspection, I found that some bastard of an inanimate object had let the air out of the tire.
After some sweating and swearing, I found the culprit…this little tiny rock

I had a day in Te Anua, so I went for a hike while I was there.
