Our trip to the East Cape has been put on hold. Everything was good until we got to Rotorua; I noticed my car start to hesitate, it was "hickuping".
I turned us around and headed back into Rotorua and made it to a car parts store. I was afraid because my coolant reservoir was empty, fortunately I wasn't too low on coolant, so that wasn't the problem.
We agreed to get to Whakatane and wait 'till tomorrow and get it looked at. That was the plan. It would have worked fine if the car would have started again. Shit. It is Sunday. Everything is closed.
It was a 4 km hike back into town from where I left my car. Not one prick would give us a lift.
We are in the Rotorua Base. It's kind of empty. Tomorrow I will wake up and walk back to my car. I've still got one road service call left so I can get the bloody thing towed to the Honda shop.
