…saying yes, I AM alive, and have some great updates to share as soon as I get a chance.
Have been working off grid, so my battery power -and time- has been severely limited. In such cases all available resources must be allocated to work. (This will surely happen again during the trip, so consider yourself warned.) However, I have just arrived in the last hour at my relative’s house in the somewhat oddly named Lower Hutt –I can see Wellington over the hill– and there is a desk! outlets in the wall, with a free flow of electricity! (oooh!) excellent signal through my internet connection! So all possible conditions are highly favorable, with a strong forecast for me to be able to catch you all up shortly. Thank you for your continued patience, and please cancel the rescue helicopters. 🙂
