    well, sort of. Once you post a comment, i can make you a user. Or if you are already a wordpress member you are already a user I think.
    so now you can post your photos or your long dissertations on Maidei.. too bad whoever has her isn't doing that. I thought we'd use it particularly for photos because they are hard to find on a thread like this.

    Maidei only arrived in New Zealand yesterday on her first international flight.... She's recovering from jet lag and will possibly be out on her bike today , if not definatly at the weekend

    However i can't post to the blog from work (security access doesn't allow) so any updates to the blog will have to be at the weekend...

    ah wouldn't you know it. I chose wordpress because I can access it from work, I can't access blogger or blogspot. go figure. you can post there any time you want, as many photos as you care to. I hope you get some nice weather!

    Mimi, maybe it might be better Maidie starts in California after NZ/Hawaii. Northwest coast weather would be better after Feb./March ..in case some of us cycle long distances in relay.

    Just a thought. Anyway, Maidei could be passed around in Vancouver area/VAncouver Island area after north Washington area?
    Shooting star - that is cool that you got to meet when you were in Maui. We didn't start corresponding until about a month AFTER I was in Maui.

    Anyway I am on Facebook with her if anyone needs to find out anything. Too bad Maidie wasn't with her - She was just in Singapore!


    It's about the journey and being in the moment, not about the destination

    weather is going to get nicer here in Singapore, so, it'll be good to send her here! how is this mapping out?

    New Country, New adventure

    I arrived safely in New Zealand on Wednesday and took full advantage of the Auckland sunshine to rest, recover and top up my suntan …. Sunday was my first planned ride with MNZ on a local trail in East Auckland, hopefully I’ll be following that up with a road ride round the Hunua ranges before heading off to Wellington to visit Pip by next weekend

    Unfortunately Sunday morning was rather damp, MNZ blames CC in Perth for some forum comment about Auckland’s dodgy weather,

    We headed out and took some paths over fields that had been cut for hay which was rather bumpy before heading up some nice gravel paths over a local country park before heading down to the beach for a catch of the water and some boats fishing ... then we headed back home about the same time as the sun broke through the clouds

    Hopefully my evening road ride will be sunny !

    A few piccies of me :

    PS - MNZ will post this to my Blog later this evening when she can access it from home

    PPS - After Wellington - looks like Pip will send me to Singapore if everyone is ok with that ?

    PPPS - MNZ will move to Oahu , Hawaii in March so happy to host me again for a Hawaiin adventure with my other Hawaiian TE host in Maui

    Love the pics!
    Maidei is one lucky girl. NZ is such a beautiful place that I am feeling very jealous of her at the moment.
    The most effective way to do it, is to do it.

    ooops

    Ooops.. MNZ..sorry about the rain..

    At least you can ride during the day atm over in NZ!!! If Maidei was still here she'd have to sit in the freezer to cool down...

    Eagerly awaiting Maidei's arrival here in Wellington. Pity she wasn't here yesterday as the weather was cycling perfect. If it doesn't rain this weekend and she arrives ok I might take her out for a spin!

    Maidei is in Wellington! However so is a Southerly and the rain. We're relaxing in the warmth of my living room until we can get back outside again ...

    I think Maidei needs a visit to the South Island (although the weather here is as bad as Wellington).

    Maybe she could try and get here in time to do the subride

    Looking forward to seeing photos from Pip and now kiwi for NZ.

    My avatar..is an oil painting that I did. It was inspired by a waterfall photo that my partner took when he went kayaking in NZ for the day. He was cycling and camping in NZ for several months.

    Sigh. I haven't been able to take Maidei out yet as I've been unwell again. I was going to take her out today, but a string of still, hot and cloudless days came to an end. Today it's been cold and wet, with a gale Southerly. I had planned to take her into town to watch the last stage of the Tour of Wellington, but no such luck ...

    I will, however, try to take her out one night this week then send her on to Christchurch! In the meantime, she's been enjoying the downtime and hanging out on the veranda in the sun.

    Ok, call me dense, but I can't see any way to upload photos on the Wordpress blog. Where is the darn button?!
