    Stop and smell the roses, the wheels just might fall off....... We had one more night at Ardmore NZMCA site so we organised our packing a little better to give Emme more room in the co-pilot’s seat. We still had a few items that we really didn’t need, which were taking up valuable space (space and lack of it our new concerns).

    Stage 2 - Resignation

Today is 3rd October, today .........
