Our time has finally come! WE ARE HERE!!!
« on: January 16, 2009, 02:02:33 pm »
Hey everyone  :clap:

Safe in Chch, New Zealand - still feels like a dream but it's not we really are here!

As I'm sure you can tell by the time zone, we are seriously suffering from Jet Lag.  :D

Will send everyone a more detailed post later today (as it is already 2am in NZ).  ;D

Take Care

YIPEEE!!  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  You guys are finally here!

The jetlag can be huge but just chillout and get lots of sleep over the next 3 days and you will be OK.  You'll still be pinching yourself for days just to see if if is all real.
