New Zealand - Finally!

Posted: 06-16-2008

I’m summering in New Zealand until the end of July.
Scarface Van
Fellow ‘505’ native Nathan Bancroft flew in from Sydney, where he is studying photography for a year abroad, to meet me in Christchurch, NZ. We picked up our ‘Scarface’ rental van from Wicked Campers, loaded up on provisions and headed into the mountains 1.5 hrs west of Christchurch to set up shop at our vacation home in the village of Castle Hill. Brandi Proffitt will be joining us in 2 weeks. Until then, it’s just the boyz misbehaving.
