I have arrived in New Zealand glitch free. My boat, gear, and everything else arrived without difficulty (once I was past the Canadian Airlines check-in counter but thats a story for another time).
I was driven to the house where I will be staying, no problems there either. On the van ride I met a junior USA team member who was really nice. Everyone is nice here. I also met Corran Addison (co-owner of Riot Kayaks) who was friendly.
It was raining when I arrived but now its sunny. The group is great there is Jeff Lewis (from Whitehorse), Charlene Stark (from Victoria), Mike, Jay, and John. The house is really nice and in a safe area.
There are so many paddlers in town. But I have not yet visited the rodeo site because the van is getting fixed, so were checking out the town and I am e-mailing away!
Got to go
P.S. they drive on the wrong side of the road here!
