    Public Service Announcement!!! BEWARE!!!

    Hello Team, Long time no me ...

    Things down here in New Zealand have been absolutely manic of late & sitting still or even sleeping seemed an inappropriate use of time.

    So, here we have it - in 62 sleeps we will embark on our next adventure to the mighty USA, & I think it’s best to warn any of you fine folks around the Orlando - Stuart - West Palm Beach area during the dates of January 4th to the 9th to perhaps steer clear of the roads.

    We stumbled apon a predicament in our travel plans which left us no choice but to get a rental car to get from Orlando to Stuart to West Palm Beach & around & about for those few days. No big deal you say??? Maybe not but maybe so. You see, we drive on the left hand side of the road & predominantly the steering wheel is on the right hand side of the vehicle. Now, driving a left hand steer car isn’t so bad once you’ve been around the block but to switch everything up all in one go . . . . Hmmm ...

    Aaargh! How bad can it be???





    So there you go, don’t say I didn’t warn you! And hey, if you see us steaming up the wrong way of the highway - give us a toot & set us straight.

    P.S - if any of my AGO Forum friends are around the area from the 21st of December in Orlando through to the 4th of January, where we will be heading to Stuart to invade Autogeek for a couple of days before heading to West Palm Beach & onwards to Houston for a couple days (9th to the 12th) before heading home to New Zealand, please please stop by & say g’day!

    Safe travels Aaryn! If you are in O-town for a few days, hit me up for a few non-theme area eating places.

    And about the car, since all rental cars are automatics you don't have to add 'shift with the wrong hand' to driving on the wrong side of the road!

    A british guy I work with moved to the US 10 years ago. He said he came up to his first roundabout in the US and instinctively went left through it. Luckily it was 1am and there wasnt any traffic.

    Hahaha, donít panic - we wonít be driving in Houston.

    Ahh, will be doing the tourist type thing with the Space Centre for the Boys & apart from trying to catch up with a couple of Detailers we didnít really have too many plans. We are flying in & out of Houston so figured we would have a brief look around.

    Thank you buddy!

    Absolutely. You are definitely on my list of people to try & catch up with. Will keep in touch, as we are in Orlando for 14 days I believe.

    Take my word for it - there's no way you can be any worse than many of the natives already here when it comes to driving!

    I'm only a little over an hour away from Orlando so we'll definitely hook up, I'll head on over that way. I'll reach out to you before you head state side.
