My first ever car, a Honda Civic 25i. My mum nicknamed it Peewee due to the number plate (PW5990). By some miracle it was still in working order by the time I sold it despite having the bajeesus thrashed out of it on a regular basis.
Photos from the Rally of Otago.
My first major tramping experience. Myself, Andy Helm, Maree Helm and Vanessa Green headed up the Matukituki valley towards Mt Aspring, then detoured up a ridiculously steep incline. The map showed that we were only travelling 200 m from the bottom to the top of the incline, however that was only the horisontal distance, the contour lines showed that it was an 800 m vertical climb to the top! This was before I started playing any sport whatsoever, so my fitness was almost zero. But I made it to the top where there was a spectacular view up the Matukituki valley towards Mt Aspring.
Ick, graduation, the most BORING experience ever. I was graduating for my Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry. Here’s some pics of Michelle and I at my graduation dinner.
I can’t remember who gave me the photos, but thanks to whoever it was!
I graduated in absentia for my Master of Science degree so no photos for that one sorry.
My brother Scott and I headed up the Cardrona Valley to see the Queenstown Gold Rush hill climb. Monster Tajima (Suzuki Vitara) ended up winning, followed by Rod Millen (Toyota Celica) and Possum Bourne (Subaru Impreze WRX).
