Another one of the “catching up” posts – the final, for now.
At the same time of the Hobbiton trip, mentioned in posts past, the opportunity was taken to pop on into the city of the future, Hamiltron. Transit NZ has decided that this teeming metropolis can and should be bypassed by constructing
I am not sure if Hamiltron stands out in the minds of many for a variety of reasons. There is a nice river. There is a shopping mall complex. The road in and out of the city is slow and torturous as the shopping precincts and suburbs follow SH1 north of the city, adding to distance one has to take at sub-100 kph speeds (probably the reason for the bypass, reason tells me).
But there is one thing that one cannot drive past. Or rather, one can, but probably shouldn’t. And that is the monument to that monumental movie of momentous proportions: the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

But gaze I did, if just for a little while. And then it was time to get outta there…
Verdict: I definitely felt I was in a timewarp, but I may wait awhile before doing that timewarp again…
