The last few days have been interesting and a bit stressful. I flew back to Victoria from Kona overnight on Sunday and then flew from Victoria to Taupo overnight on Monday (which actually got me here on Wednesday because we crossed the dateline). All the travel went smoothly. My connections were a bit tight but I made them and thought all was good. Unfortunately my bike did not arrive with me here in New Zealand and it was missing for the better part of a day. Luckily it has been found and it has arrived in one piece. Now it is time to get focused.
Thanks for the all the emails and well wishes from all of you!
