Jet lag! We arrived in Auckland at 5:30 this morning and have been going ever since. It. Is now around 8:45 PM New Zealand time and I'm done in. There was very little sleeping on the flight in, uncomfortable and cramped, no resting or napping today either as I wanted to stay awake to make the time change adjustment and the loss of a day a bit q bikes are all reassembled, ready to roll; I did a bit of exploring downtown Auckland, walked a lot. I have met the other group members: Eric and Nancy, Jennie, Mary, Terry, Carol and her son Martel who has graciously volunteered to be our driver (and I found out that he also likes to cook - I want him on my cook team!) it's a small crew of riders and we think we will travel well together. The Internet connection is very slow at this hostel and I am very tired so I say good night to all?
