New Zealand - North Island

From New Zealand

We were picked up in Auckland by a BMX friend, Mike Ready. I met him seven years ago while I was on a trip here with Robbie. Great guy with very well mannered children. People in New Zealand are so relaxed and friendly. While in Auckland we ventured the city and hiked to the top of Rangitoto, Bloody Sky in Moari. The city is cool and clean but we aren't city people so we took a boat to the dormant volcano. The photo is in the lava caves.

Now were are getting on the ferry to the South Island. More shredding will occur.

Fiji Album

Huntington Beach then Fiji

The link above is to the Fiji Album. It is incomplete due to computers being slow and taking money to access. This traveling stuff is not cheap. We enjoyed the heat and the beaches in Fiji but we are so glad to be in in Auckland, New Zealand. This city is beautiful and has plenty to keep us busy for a few days. A friend I meet back 7 years ago picked us up at the airport and treated us to a nice drive around the city. People here are genuine and cool. The great adventure continues...

The computers here are very slow so I have not downloaded any photos but Fiji is chill. Not much stress on this island. We have traveled and done a lot of laying around here. Fiji is very similar to Costa Rica but slightly more expensive. We are ready to go to New Zealand on Thursday and do some real activity. Check back in a week or so for pictures.

The Great Adventure to San Fransisco

Great Rainbow at the end of the San Fran tour by Zach.

San Fransisco is beautiful.
We drove from Wyoming to Reno on day two. Day 3 began at Lake Tahoe. This is one of the best places ever. I would defineately live there. This lake is 22 miles long!

2.5 hours in the trip and we were stuck in Wyoming due to a white out blizzard. 18 hours later we were back on the road.

Packing is Horrible

Tomorrow is the big move day. Almost everything is packed and and staged for the Uhaul. Moving every year is horrible. Hopefully Stacey and I can get in a place someday for longer than a year. This photo is all the clothes and baggies with medicine, q-tips, and razors I am bringing on the trip. I might have to ditch some of it a long the way. I have no idea what I am doing.
