Talking help a Dad please

Kia Ora

Conscious this is right off topic - However, my daughter (currently crewing on a yacht off of France) is trying to win a free air ticket back to good old KiwiLand by garnering votes in a promotion by her home town Lower Hutt

If any of you'se with a Facebook presence would consider voting for her under the entry 'Papa Bear' I'd be hugely grateful

Linky here should take you to the contest - thanks in advance

Quite nice , although I wouldn't wanna have too many.

is that to hire a bike? What about shipping own bikes over and doing it free style?

Yeah i think it's about 2K shipped. Even tho it isn't apparently that hard to ride up there it's best to have some kind of backup for the inevitable breakdown etc.
Almost worth buying a bike over there & leaving it there then flying over every couple of years for a dose of sunshine & red dust.

Hmmm, my work sends shipping containers backwards and forwards all the time. I wonder if I could hide a small motorbike sized box in the back of one of them....

nah, wouldn't go down too well, but I might make some subtle enquiries.
