GBI here we come!

Kia Ora!  Just a quick update...
GK made it here yesterday morning and we are heading to Great Barrier Island tomorrow! Staying with a Kiwi mate who has a batch over there.  We will be Surfing/Kayaking/Fishing/Tramping/Solving-the-world's-problems/etc.  Should be Choice.  We were supposed to have the Onetangi Beach Races today which consists of many various activities: Boat races, relay races, tractor races, tug-o-war, heaps of socializing and tons more....but they were postponed due to the threat of the possible tsunami from the earthquakes in Chile'. Nothing happened here but I do feel sympathy for those damaged by this 8.8 scale disaster.  
This reminds me of the ole thought for the day I use to share at camp... "The Ripple Effect"... everything that happens, effects us/others in some manner.  We think, well this won't effect's far away.  Or what I choose to do doesn't effect others.  Being here in NZ, a literal ripple effect was in caution from this earthquake.  But also, one of my mates here from Argentina talked to some family at home and they even felt some of it, but are all ok.  Anyhoo, let's think about our actions and how they all effect someone/something whether it's for the better or for worse...hopefully, of course it's the first of those!  
Be back in a week with some sick pics!  Sweet as!
