Only in New Zealand could you find an entire park
dedicated to monster trucks and daredevil car stunts. Only 15 minutes from our
house in Wanaka is the
Monster Mountain Ride Park, so when it came time for daddy-daughter day, Joe
and Gary knew just where to take Cassidy and Kyra!
Time for School,
First (of course), it was to the
Cassidy off to her first day at
wilderness survival school.
We drove over crushed cars, dirt
mountains, and thru a river (the girls held their noses :).
Ian gives Gary some driving
Next, Joe and Gary each got to drive Taurus
around the track, under the watchful eye of Ian. Very cool!
Two Wheels to the Sky
Then Joe and Gary each had a wild ride with
Ian on two wheels. He drove for like a quarter-mile and it felt like we were
going to flip the whole time. Note: the only mods made to this truck are 1)
chains on the bottom tires, and 2) a locking differential.
