On April 16th I got a call about some temp work in Wellington but it was too late because I would be heading up North for the next few weeks. I worked for Raj all day and finished the night by delivering a key to one of Raj's customers in Karori.

The next day I drove to Hamilton with James and his family where we had dinner at his parents' house. James is relocating back to Hamilton because it's easier to just move back into the house he owns there rather than continuing living on the farm in Welly.

The next couple days I tried using my traps to help out with the local possum infestation and, while working with James' dad one day, I got stung by a bee.

On the 20th we went to a Stihl chainsaw event where a profession axe-man demonstrated the different events in a chainsaw competition.

Palmy Trip

On April 13th some of us went on a trip to Palmerston North where we had lunch at a cafe and worked on Bill's farm. Bill had us chasing cows and let me drive his ATV. After a bit I handed the ATV over to Sunhil and he crashed it into a fence! Later we had a BBQ and went to Johns house for the night. 

The next day we attended the church meeting and enjoyed a massive monthly feast in Feilding (best in the North Island).
After returning to Welly the next day I spent the day doing sales calls, cutting up more tyres and organizing some things then had dinner at Rob's with the Casey's and some French travellers.

Cabin Life

A couple weeks ago I finally moved into the hut and started eating at the local Pizza Hut. At $4.50 a pizza it will be hard to resist making it a habit. On April 3rd I went to the Macdonald's for dinner and hike up the stream with Neil and Aaron. We discovered an ancient looking tree house and I saw my first stick bug.

On April 5th I got a job at the garage around the corner and sold some scrap metal for $16. Later I went around the corner to Sean's house for dinner. The next day I sold my fur for $85 and went to a dinner for Mike's going away to London. Over the next few days I relaxed at and worked on the cabin while living off the land a bit by eating some of the eggs left behind by the neighbor's hens.

On the 12th Raj from the garage finally called me in to do some work and paid me $80 for a day of cutting up tyres and cleaning up. That night I had dinner at Rob's house.

Auckland Conference


Today I flew to Auckland and hitched into town with a uni student named Donavan. At the University of Auckland I met up with Gino and went to the brothers' house with Aaron. There I played some xbox and we went to dinner at Williams'. Later we all did gocarts and went out for ice cream, pies, fries and raspberry icees at Maccas.


Yesterday I played Xbox and today I played a bit more before going to the Auckland Conference.


Today we went to the park and passed a ball around a bit then came back and slept. Later we went to the conference and afterwards bought some fun ice cream called "Goodie Goodie Gumdrops."

Yesterday was the last day of the conference so today I flew back to Welly and worked on the hut with James. That night I stayed at the farm one more time.
