    Two Weeks Out!!!

    Happy Festive Season Friends.

    Well, as I write this post at 8.50pm on a blustery Saturday night here in New Zealand, by this time in two weeks we will have taken off from Auckland Airport & be in the early stages of making our way across the Pacific on our 8000+ mile journey to Orlando Florida.

    Super excited to be taking some time off & spending it with the family, & hopefully catching up with a couple of AGO Forum members too while we are in the USA.

    Gonna chuck in some pictures as usual, just to brighten things up a little ...

    Jonty got his drivers licence a few days ago & here he is driving the Bug ... it’s the only vehicle we have that is “stick” & because it is so “raw” I felt it was important to learn in something that has a “mechanical” feel to it. Man, they grow up fast huh ...




    So, whilst our time there is predominantly a vacation & I cannot wait to take Benjamin to Disney World, i am really looking forward to getting to Stuart & hanging out with the good folks at Autogeek. Very cool that the Autogeek Open House Day is on when we’re there, & super excited about meeting a bunch of people, chilling out, talking detailing & doing some detailing.

    A bunch of new tools I’m eager to get to take for a spin too. Although my heart is in my throat reading that the Flex PXE & Cordless CBeast have sold out ... fingers crossed more stock will have arrived by the time we get there & some will end up in my suitcase.

    Sweet little Fraser (NZ built Lotus replica kit car) in for a complete flatten off, Polish & CQuartz Finest Reserve installation.






    Our timing almost aligns with our first adventure to America & that was for a Mike Phillips Boot Camp Class back in January 2015, hard to believe that was five years ago & although we only saw a very minimal part of your magnificent country, we fell in love with it & long to return & explore more & more.


    A crotch rocket - Kawasaki ZX-14 In for a thorough detailing.






    The shop has been extremely busy & this year we have sacrificed most weekends in order to fund our vacation. This has taken a toll on my ever ageing body & with the goal insight, I’m screaming out for that 14 & a half hour plane ride to Houston.
    I feel extremely blessed to have the support from my gorgeous Wife Ange to be able to run such a successful shop & I’m thankful to everyone that has had my back & that includes all y’all here on the forum too - Thank you.


    Ange knows the right tools to rep - A Flex North America cap that was brought back from SEMA by a fellow Kiwi detailer just for me.




    I apologise for my somewhat lack of involvement here over the last few Months but as stated above - I’m getting old .... almost working seven days a week & by the time I get home, be Dad, dinner, Husband & housework, the pillow seduces me & there goes my AGO time. Next years calendar is filling fast already but being there for the family will take priority much more & thus should result in a bit more Forum time.


    Some boat polishing action going down ... interesting story with this one.




    I will wrap this up here now but for anyone here on the Forum who is around the same areas as I’ll be & wanna catch up & say g’day, shout out ... USA here we come.


    Our stand at a local charity “car event” with good friends Andy, Ben & my lovely Wife Ange.





    Hmmm, that guy!











    Thank you all for stopping by.


    Aaryn NZ.

    You'd think New Zealand invading Florida would be bigger news...........

    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Thank you Don.

    Yeah, it does suck you guys won’t be there & it sucks we aren’t coming back via San Francisco but I know you guys are doing something special. We will be back or you’ll come this way but rest assured we will catch up somewhere sometime.

    Thank you Scott.

    Kicking myself now that we didn’t squeeze a few more days into this trip & made the effort to come across your way.

    Another time ...

    Haha, thanks PaulMys.

    I would’ve thought so too!!! Even if we all show up, we’re a little out numbered ... NZ population = 4.78million, Florida population = Over 21million ....

    Appreciate it my friend, perhaps we’ll come your way in the future too.

    Thank you Bob.

    Yeah buddy, someone’s been pulling the wool over your eyes (NZ Wool too I bet) of course we can fly.

    Happy Holidays to you to my friend.
