It was a pain that there was a rather large hole in the radiator so they had to tow the Pajero to Wellington. Within 3 hours we were back on the road with a hire car with some truly exhausted kids. Poor Jack was suffering some shock, pale, shivering and clutching a sick bag.
The saddest thing was Stu's $2000 bike which had a new bike-rack bar and tube. Hopefully the insurance will cover it sooner rather than later.
