Spend­ing every wak­ing minute with your feet sunk in the sand, a cold brew in hand, all the while watch­ing the waves lap at the shore while the sun turns your skin red­der by the minute is one hell of a way to en­joy the clas­sic Kiwi sum­mer — it’s the kind of thing that most peo­ple spend their work­ing days dream­ing of while star­ing out the win­dow, wish­ing that they were any­where but at work. Although, for those of us with 98 oc­tane pump­ing through our veins, all that sounds like a sweet ad­di­tion to what would oth­er­wise be the main event. It’s the jour­ney out to these myth­i­cal sum­mer spots that’s where the real fun is at. What we crave is that feel­ing of get­ting the crew to­gether and smash­ing your way some­thing wild through the back­coun­try windies, opt­ing for the long route, and tak­ing any op­por­tu­nity of­fered to keep the drive go­ing.
