The Lost Blog

Yikes, it's been a month since I posted! Holy cow... well I have a pretty good excuse. The farm I'm on is in the middle of nowhere. So secluded that their 4km driveway is even included on the road atlas. Cell reception is here and there, and internet is nonexistent. I've been driving to the nearest town, Tokoroa, and sitting in my car, using the internet. It's pretty sad when you think about it. I've also sat at restaurants with my laptop, but I only have enough patience for that to check my e-mail.

Anyway, a lot has happened since I last wrote! I only spent 4 days on the farm I went to after the first one. Then, I went on to another farm and had a really good time there, which is why you haven't heard from me. I actually worked a full 12 hour day (with 2 1-hour breakfast and lunch breaks) and I enjoyed it. Working a full days work is much more satisfying than the 5-6 I was getting at the first place. Because of me buying the internet by MB, I might just have to catch you all up to speed and post pictures when I get home. I took a ton of photos at the last farm, and it was a really neat place. I also got to do some sight-seeing.

Army update- Craig got his initial orders about a month ago. After he graduates from training, it looks like Ft. Carson, Colorado. That could change though.

  1. Glad to hear you enjoyed the farm. Can't wait to see the pictures. What day are you coming home? I suppose a lot of that is up in the air, because you want to see Craig and yet, you have to go back to mom and dad's because that's where your stuff is. You'll have to let us know when you'll be back to WI so we can come see you.
