The Long Journey Home

Today’s the day.  We head down to Auckland and fly out.  First there are a few bridges to cross.

The campervan has to be cleaned.

imageThen there is the drive from Matakohe to Otohuhu to turn in the campervan.  There were still many great views.imageThen the taxi ride to the airport to catch the plane.  Starting 12 January, a second security point is now required for all flights entering the US.  This one includes a patdown and a physical search of all carry on luggage.  What have we come to?image And now the 12 hours in the plane to get to LA.  Goodbye New Zealand.  Thanks for all the memories.  I will always cherish this.image And thanks to you all for following along on the journey.  Your comments and e-mails have been a great connection and help.

Glad you had such a great trip!! At least you'll get to see Shadow pretty soon!

Good luck with the long flights. Somehow I thought it was even longer than 12 hours back to the west coast. Good to know!!!

Welcome home!
