Hello family and friends, I’m still working at the pack house and will have 2 long weeks so I thought I’d update you while I had the chance. I’m still renting the car and will be until this Sunday when I’ll be thinking about buying a car (more on that as it happens). It’s not worth renting any longer and having my own transportation for the rest of the New Zealand portion of the trip will be a great advantage.
The work here will probably last until the 3rd week of September, at that point I plan to go to Lake Taupo to do some stupid extreme sports stuff like skydiving and tramping (hiking for us North Americans) on some of the nicest tracks on the north island.
Here are a couple of pictures from the pack house, I’ll post some more when I get a chance to take them.
