Finally off!  Aaron dropped me off and waited till I flew out.  He had just come down with the flu, so he wasn't feeling too flash.  Tarsh came down from the tower and gave me a gift for KK and a yankee fiver to get a coffee in NY.  As we boarded the plane she announces over the tower speaker, 'Go Linley!'. Everyone on the tarmac turned at looked at me.  Cheers for that Tarsh!  I muttered something about knowing people in high places, like towers. 

Nice clear day flying out of Nelson.  She always puts on some good views.  The whole flight was very clear and there was a good view of Lake Taupo. The big fush heart?

A bit of a walk to International once I landed in Auckland, but luckily my bag was already checked in all the way through.  

Possibly the longest time I have spent in Auckland.. totalling about 3 hours in the airports.
Guess it's topped the five minutes I stopped last time just to use the toilet!  The place isn't my kind of thing.

Slept about three hours I'm guessing on the flight to LA.  And not all at once.  Cramped as heck, but luckily I ended up with a young fella next to me and one empty seat.  So I moved over to the window and we shared the middle seat between us.

Sorry if there is any spelling errors!  Spellcheck has jammed.  You'll have to suck it up, babies!  Catch ya in LA!

Random odd thought.. why are there no songs about Linleys?
