    Have fun in Coromandel – if you’re into this kind of thing, there is a very cool miniture train thing that climbs into the hills – the guy originally built it to get clay out of the hills for his pottery, but now does better with the train as a tourist attraction.

    Also, if you get a chance, head around East Cape to Gisborne – its amazing. maybe the best way to do it would be to head from Rotorua back out to Whakatane and then around the coast – then come back inland towards Taupo via Lake Waikeremoana and Murupara and skirt through the forest to Taupo that way. Means you get to see the awesomeness that is the East Cape.

    Sorry if I missed this before, but I dig the photo of Russ showing his rearview mirror now mounted on the right side of his helmet! I did a double-take and then the light bulb came on! I’ll support you guys whenever I can, until then, keep the dream and drive alive.

    I was moved to read about the buses in Auckland. I bike commute to work year round in Brooklyn, NY, and in my experience the MTA bus drivers (public transit city buses) share the road safely and courteously with bikes. Brooklyn school buses are another matter (very reckless and hostile driving and I fear for my life when school is in session). But I have such appreciation for city bus drivers.

    Jono, living here in Auckland I’d agree – professional drivers in general seem to be pretty good – sadly Joe Q Public in their SUV aren’t so good.
