We are in NZ!

sunny 60 °F

Coming to you from the Auckland Airport where we've found a lounge that is part of our Priority Pass membership. Before we head out and grab the van (our home for the next three weeks), we wanted to give everyone a quick status update. We made it in early this AM from LAX where we were staying with Miya's sister for a day…Thanks Rayna! As a nice surprise, Miya's parents were able to drive in from Las Vegas so it was great seeing them one last time before heading out. The weather in LA was fantastic and we had the chance to make it out to Venice Beach to explore before putting the finishing touches on our planning. The planning really doesn't stop so we're constantly making reservations and planning the next few days. I don't see that changing for the next six months so I'm hopeful we hit our stride soon. This one has to be quick since we've got to grab our bags and get moving. We likely won't have internet access for the next few days so I wanted to share our rough plans:

Today 3/2 (Auckland)
Find a SIM card for our phone (number TBD but please contact via email or Skype)
Explore Auckland
Last minute camping gear purchases
Grocery Store
Drive to Lake Taupo - 3.5 hours

Tomorrow 3/3 (Lake Taupo)
Day Hike
Drive to Lake Waikaremoana

Saturday 3/4 (Lake Waikaremoana)
Lake Waikaremoana Great Hike

Sunday 3/5 (Lake Waikaremoana)
Lake Waikaremoana Great Hike

Pictures will be coming soon once we have some time to get them uploaded and have decent internet.

Happy Trails!
