    Son and I were on our way back to Napier last Friday after going for a ride with him (Pneumatics tech) when he went to Gisborne to service some compressors. We were at Nuhaka about an hour before the first launch window and wondered if we should stop and watch it take off. Just as well we decided against it.

    Always been too scared to stop in Wairoa. Is it worth finding?
