    Re: NZ to Mickies House to Autogeek Open House to Space & Back ...

    One of the best threads ever!

    Awesome of you to share that, Aaryn.

    Glad you guys had a blast up here in the US of A.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    You may have missed your calling as a gifted writer and photographer.....I felt that I was along on the journey with you and your family. You grace the USA with your presence when you & family come to visit. I call you friend even though we have not met.

    Outstanding! You truly have a gift at photo documentation. Felt like I was there with you all. It is bitter sweet as I enjoyed following and texting you while you were here state side but unable to be there with you all. God willing our little boy will be born next month and we can start to make plans again. Glad you all made it home safely.

    My pleasure mate. We werenít even home 24 hours & we were already planning our next visit.

    Now this is an example of a proper write-up! Thank you so much for visiting and then taking the time to post all these pictures that really tell a story.

    I always appreciate your taking the time to share pictures. So few do it now days. It's a lost skill set. A monkey with a smart phone can put a picture on FB but it actually takes some brains to do it on a forum.

    Glad to know you and the family made it safely back to New Zealand. That is one heck of a long flight, especially for Benjamin.


    I'm sure you're far behind in your work load but try to ease back into it mate...



    Thank you Mike.

    We had an amazing time, especially in Stuart, & we appreciate all the local tips too. Thank you ever so much for having us my friend, the Margaritas are on us next time.

    Otherwise it looks like you had a blast! Mark is a great guy. Got a chance to have dinner with him last year. And as always thanks for repping the Final Inspection shirt!
    Thank you Justin.

    Indeed, Mark is an absolute champion. Was pretty of him to come over & see us.

    Awh geeze man. It was a little unnerving being away from home & having the young fella sick but weíre grateful for the attention the Dr gave us. We had an amazing time .... been home a week now - miss it incredibly. Weíll hopefully catch up next trip buddy.

    And as someone that lives in Orlando, I agree the coastal towns (Atlantic and Gulf sides) are way more laid back.

    Sorry I missed you this trip - my son is getting married next weekend, so my wife is keeping me busy!

    And that volcano shot is amazing! Nothing like that on our sandbar.
    Cheers mc2hill.

    Absolutely mate, next time for sure.

    Congratulations to your Son mate, Iím sure itíll be a fantastic day.

    Thank you RTexasF!

    Hahaha, thanks Rick. You know - I always get nervous when posting here, simply because I havenít got too much of a clue if Iím putting the dots Ďní spots all in the right places & I cringe thinking Mike Phillips May be reading it & thinking - ďlook at this idiotĒ ..... Iíll just claim it is due to our apparent accent. Hahahaha.

    Appreciate you taking the time to comment my friend.

    Thank you, Iím pleased you enjoyed.

    Thank you Mark!

    You betcha my friend.

    Weíre already looking forward to checking out the West Coast of Florida.

    We really appreciate you taking the time to drive over in horrible conditions to take us out for dinner & catch up. A massive highlight for us for sure.

    Thank you my Brother!

    Awh geeze man, Iím so excited for you all. Make sure you keep us up to play Don.

    Yeah mate, you bet. We definitely wanna check out your patch too at some stage. It was great to have you along for the ride Don, I appreciate it my friend.
