After landing back in Auckland, Embarked on the Waterview, Tunnel Walk, kindly hosted by the NZTA. Could walk about 900m in via the Northnound tunnel then crossing over to the southbound tunnel to walk back. (Though have to admit, was thinking we could walk straight through to the other end)
Beware, Fixed Speed cameras at each end and variable speed limit up to a Maximum of 80km/h.
I don’t know what it is, I didn’t realize “Chemtrails” (from commercial passenger jets) were still a wide spread concern. After checking my Facebook messages (as I do every few days), I let curiosity get the better of me and clicked on one of the seemingly random suggestions which Facebook often show on the side of their web interface, then came across this post. I have to admit, at first, I thought it was either a prank, joke or sarcasm and it took me awhile to sink in that some of the people were actually serious about the issue.
It was probably more the numbers of people whom were subscribing to the Chemtrail theory, and the resultant “group think” which threw me off the most (and led me to go find the nearest brick wall). After further casing the corridors of the face-borg cube, found that the Chemtrail thing was actually quite well subscribed to across the confined of the ‘borg cube and to a lesser extent, beyond into the wider general Internet. I don’t what is driving it, is this the filter bubble / echo chamber thing that many critics of Facebook mention?
Return to the Whangarei area to catch up with a few friends. A short overnight walk to Peach Cove Hut via the shorter and direct Peach Cove Track, returning via Te Whara Track and staying up at the peak to take in the views of the Whangarei Area. Later on a short flat walk around Whangarei’s town basin. Pictures posted here.
