On staying here

I think yesterday was, quite possibly, the strongest I've felt about staying in New Zealand since I, well, got to New Zealand four years ago.

It was the first time I was with my SAR team.

There was a truck engineer and a slaughterer and an ex-soldier and a dairy farmer and a college student; a bit rough around the edges but fun. Fun!

There were gumboots, loads of gumboots behind the door, and some tattered old jumpers inside. There were traffic cones and head torches and high-vis vests and muddy roads.

The Kid's calling, gotta go. Talk later!

    Slaughter is someone who kills animals, butcher is the one who cuts killed animals up :)
