We also need write ups to live vicariously. Enjoy the orienteering and have a great trip.

Yes, have a great trip and we'd love to see updates!

I do know how tough the internet connections can be there, though. There's only one trans-oceanic communications cable for the whole country, and so internet access is pricy and slow. You have to pay by the MB!

Yes, write-ups and pics! Don't you know your adoring fans are anxiously waiting??

Ack! I started something longer but the computer shut down on me. As E pointed out, Internet is not free, so I grab some from my host when I can. And, thanks to all of you for the interest. :)

Some pics here for now, from the plane rides and the run in Napier:

It is just after 6 AM on Saturday morning, and we are off to the event site. I am traveling with the Live Results (O-Lynx) team, and there is setup and tear down to do each day. Love being part of the team and having something to do during the event.

Though not perfect execution, yesterday's course was a ton of fun. Hope to get the map up this evening.

More later - I promise!

Beautiful photos and video! I'm so excited for you, Valerie! Enjoy every minute!

Thanks for the shot of the monitor stands :) Wow, even the driftwood and flotsam has flowers growing on it! It looks like Amber's sister (Fern) ran the same course as you yesterday. Be sure to say hello. Have you run into Matt Scott?

FYI, there's free wi-fi in the Wellington city centre (would guess this includes the arena for the Monday sprint). I'm using it now.

Thanks, Blair. Good to meet you today. Enjoyed the announcing.

Eddie, wait until you see the stand go down - we shot some video. Will get it up in a day or two. Under two minutes from start to finish. Very, very slick - the best one I have seen. The wires are embedded. Have not run into Matt Scott. Assume he will be wearing the USA colors tomorrow, so I will look for him then.

Good to hear you´re enjoying your trip!
I´m envious, but I sent my son instead...
