I was through Thompson George two weeks ago and there was only one 50m wet rutted section that I had to be careful on with mainly road orientated tires.
There might be some usable ideas, routes + maps in this part of the Trans_NZ_South Island route:
Love the Thompson Gorge, it’s some speccy country down there.
Add some local Pinot Noir to round out the mix 🙂
