This is where we'll update you on how our trip is going.

23 Oct, 2011 - great escape!!!! by Ruby

We made our escape last week for a few days on the bike... great time on the road regardless of the weather!

This is such a cool carving, made out of one tree at Tokoroa... so far the weather held, the ride to Palmerston north was

long, almost 700kms, We stayed at this lovely old budget hotel, and had a laugh with the locals. Here is Treena with my lovely grandson

Theo Otis the one below is my lovely son bathing him, with his daughter Talia, and GRANDDAD!!

Had a neat time catching up with all the girls, then 5am start back onto the ferry to Kawhia to see mum and dad, not bad for 82, and 92

we got totally drenched on the way in, so Noel had to borrow the moteliers lava lava to go to dinner. Had the day with mum and dad,

then off up to Auckland for the night. But on the way, we stopped in Ohakune to take this pic of my old family home. Dad made the blocks

and gate in the front fence.


Just over 2 thousand kms... lovely trip... Pinky and Chooky were just sooo ecstatic to see us home
