Today’s Trivia

Can you figure it out tonight?

    Just down the road is Ohakea which is a Defence base and the link to Canada and defence is that both are part of the Five Eyes partners for number 2

    And opposite to Ohakea is a weigh station which would be suitable for “Blubbergeddonites” to weigh in for number 3

      Actually, there is a better link to 5 eyes than Ohakea which is the spy base at Tangimoana 10 minutes further down the same road..
