    1) Jaw dropping!

    2) I'm so glad you had the presence of mind to turn the camera around and snap a self-portrait at the top of your epic solo journey!

    3) Your description was quite the page-turner! I hung on every word.

    4) QUOTE: They drive on the left side of the road, the have no IDEA what American football is all about and they USE the METRIC SYSTEM... . ...from what I was told, I was suppose to always keep to the left. UNQUOTE

    Maybe "left" means "right" down under!!!


    Thanks for posting.

    Thanks for the trip report! It sounds like you made good choices faced with your circumstances. NZ is on my bucket list.
