    Default Us - 1996

    Busy sorting through all our photos and came across this one.

    It's from a trip to New Zealand's South Island back in 1996.

    I thought some of you might find it interesting to see what Allyce (featured in some of my photos), Chantelle (member here and also featured in some of my photos) and myself looked like some 13 years ago.

    We had left home for the airport the afternoon before and the flight was cancelled due to a fuel truck ramming the plane's engine.
    After much bitching they put us up in a hotel room for the night and got us on a flight at 2am. We arrived in Christchurch, NZ at about 6am or something and hit the road in a hire car (shown) at about 8.30am.
    This photo was taken late afternoon after driving all day through the center of the island and was the first snow the girls had ever seen.
    We stopped so they could check it out and I could try to wake up a bit more. Lack of sleep was really getting to me by now and we still had about 4 hours drive to go.
    As a side note ... while we stayed in the hotel ... our house was broken into and robbed. And the bank lost our holiday savings. By about 10am the next morning we were wondering why the hell we had come. The bank found our money after a day or so and my dad and neighbours had the robbery thing under control ... and we had the most awesome 4 weeks of holiday in NZ.

    In your post you mentioned your Dad and I haven't seen an update on his health in some time, now. How's he doing?

    Thanks Antz. It's actually an old negative scan as the photos themselves are dying badly, actually so were the negs. Hence the quality or lack thereof.
