  • What about “paper roads” Aaron – does LINZ map all of those?

      • I curse paper roads…. I have not so fond memories of walking straight up above a steep hill full of thick bush above Picton with a slasher and some survey equipment so that one could be surveyed accurately. My colleague was cosily sitting with his theodolite on the balcony of a motel in town watching my slow progress…
        ps. Nice R… wish mine was so neat
