sorry guys when i dropped back. When we u turned, i drove over a log on the side of the road that wedged between my wheel and panel. 2 farmers helped lift the car and pull it out.

Thanks for coming back to check lurch!

Decided to call it cause the car was going so badly. Had to fill up on water on the way home and went 10 times better after that.

Nice to meet you all!

Shame you guys had troubles.
Log stuck where?  :o

I went to Dave's to meet up with everyone, Johnno was already there. Twas just the 3 of us for quite a while, as the cruise hit a few snags.

Thanks for Dave and his lovely family for having us on their beautiful property.
Was nice to meet Mike too, our trans Tasman brother.

Damn, 7 odd hours past quickly, Was great to hang while waiting for the rest of you and have the opportunity to ear bash David, Mike great to meet you also and hope your stay and return trip goes well.

David, and family thanks once again for your hospitality, Mexico is a bit of a drive but well worth it.

Cheers

John

Good to finally meet a number of you today. Next time you let a kiwi navigate make sure the instructions say "Right into xyz" not "Straight right to xyz" as I was busy looking around the country side and just spotted Straight not the straight right....or write them in sheep language so i can read them lol

Big thanks Dimitri for letting me sit shotgun in the 240z. Evan great drive in the comfee seat ;) Lurch and Peter for allowing a Kiwi to sit in the passengers seat also - Peter I would love to go for a spin around a track with you behind the wheel of (anything really but) a zed.

And to David for hosting us at the end of Cruise.

Ha Ha Ha,

Yeah don't worry, roll your eyes all you want Buddy, David and I were laughing yesterday when we predicted and then heard about all the gremlins that hit the touring party during the drive, a time will come when we both light up the Bavarian's as we pass all you guys and I'm sure it wont be the end of the rolling eye syndrome  8)

(All in good jest guys)

Mike,

Even though I'm still dark on you about the ZG covers (Just kidding) if mine is on the road you can drive and I will ride shotgun for part of the trip, but somehow I think David will be miles ahead of me as far as completion, so it might be the second trip for you from now that I can keep my promise, unless I pull it off and land that job on Thursday then things will go into overdrive.
