• Yes, it was fun having you guys on the panel! And I’m so glad you’re heading for NZ — it was one of my favorite countries on my round the world trip. You’re going to love pedaling around that lovely country. :)

    I loved what you said about the only objective you had when leaving to travel was that you’d do it until it wasn’t fun anymore. Brian and I went home and talked about it and agreed that we feel the exact same way. I hope it is fun for years and years.

    Great read BTW are you taking the folders to NZ ? You should be able to get them on the intercity buses without paying extra for them like a full size one but you do not have to box bikes only remove the pedals. At Auckland airport there is a bike Assembly area with work stands. If you need any info let me know

    I just got turned on to your site and trip, and have to say THANK YOU! Right now I am living vicariously through you two, and will get my act together soon enough to start contributing something ($$), and not just remain a voyeur. For now, I’m looking into a MEET,PLAN,GO group in my area of Pittsburgh, Pa. Happy pedaling, you two!

    Just stumbled on your page on facebook! Love your story! Funny because I have actually been thinking about doing the same thing lately- just packing a backpack and going on a big adventure, living each moment :)

    I’m actually heading to New Zealand to cycle North to the South with a friend from 28th January to 22nd Febuary, fundraising for charity :) Would you guys be over there at that time??

  • Russ & Laura, it was great to have you at the PDX MPG event (I was the guy holding the laptop in the corner in the last photo). And now that I know you’re planning to hit NZ I’m kicking myself I didn’t talk to you before the night ended. I’ll be moving there in January though, so perhaps we can reconnect when you make it down there.
