Well, August 20th was Keith, Patch, Jake, and I driving from Mt. Potts back to Queenstown so Patch could catch an afternoon flight. Keith and I were flying out the next day and Alain drove everyone else to Christchurch to catch their flights. Keith and I walked around most of downtown Queenstown and waited for Alain to show up. We all split a room and had more of the most excellent Fergburger to top off our trip. Sunday the 21st found us getting up, grabbing a muffin for breakfast, and making our way to the airport. It was the longest one day I’ve ever had and I’m glad to be back home. I am also sorry to have left New Zealand though. It’s a beautiful country and I would love to go back and honestly I really wanted to stay longer. I will not soon forget this trip and how much fun it was at just the right time in my life. I got a lot better at snowboarding and I came out only sore, not injured. I’m looking forward to the next snow season here and I hope that I can continue to improve. I guess I’ll write more specific snowboarding notes later. For now it is time to sleep and get back into the time stream here at home.
