    Finally arrived in NZ

    The 2 containers I sent at Christmas finally arrived inn Auckland. 3 1/2 months. The last week the boat had been sitting in the harbor waiting for the port to get it's act together. These are some well traveled pits. Started in Argentina, 2 x stops in brazilian ports, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, Jarkata, 2 x stops in Australia 🦘 then finally arrived in Auckland. I bolted some wheels on the trailer and dragged it 100km home and had a big truck bring the rest of the pits. Will be working this weekend disassembling them ready for sale..

            I guess it was stuck in the Suez Canel.

              Nope... but I am sure the port in Auckland will use it as an excuse for their ineptness.

                  I think he's trying to bait you. Looks like another North versus South battle royale is brewing!

                The South African stop was more than likely the port just down the drag from where I stay.
                Wishing you all the success.

                    Finally got to play with my toys on this side of the pacific. Cooked up lamb, rolled beef flank, chicken, pastrami and leg of a hogget. Perfect weather here for Easter. Been busy un wrapping all the pits from shipping.

                      Live in small towns outside of AKL is cheaper and better...
