Yep...so I and VTNZ lady did our calculations from that point.
Land Transport went back to 2009....because they have nothing better to do!
Going to dig out old COF forms...LT's own records....and get Peter to figure out where we clocked up 20, 000 k's without realising it.
We figure there will be a sudden jump in odo meter readings that cannot be accounted for....
Methinks we're on a wild goose chase...as I said...proving perhaps an odometer glitch would be impossible.
Is is possible that the odometer could have "jumped" a few 10's of thousand ks due to a fault....or as I hypothesised, a particulary bumpy road caused a fault? The road I'm thinking of the one to Kohaihai in Feb 2011. We had done Molesworth, been up to French Pass and down to Paterau....no strangers to the gravel.
The Kohaihai road was appalling. We honestly thought that bits were going to break off the Bus...and for the first and only time..we found a spot to turn around.
