I'd just like to make it clear that "live the dream" aren't my words. Rob...

I'd like to know what anyone makes of these so far... Good? s**t? What sort of things should I be looking to write about? Anything particulalrly you'd like to know about?

If what you want to say is really sweary, it's probably best to go for PMs...

Ta,

Matt

Keep up the good work  :)

This is great! Im planning on heading out to NZ in march time to ride for a month! Make sure you go to FERGBURGER in Queenstown! The best and biggest burgers EVER! haha
Keep us updated, and make sure you say where you ride as it will be handy when/if i go out.

Make sure you go to Wynyard Freeride (Dream Track) at Queenstown, chances are you won't hit a single jump on the Dream Track but it's so worth it just to see the sheer size!



:D

They make for good reading mate.

Only thing I'd say is more photos if possible, but that's only because I prefer looking at pics to reading  ;)

Cheers for the comments fellas.

I am working on getting some more pictures - there's a photog who I've been riding with, so I just need to chase him up (he's the guy who's done the shots on Dirt right now). I didn't want to talk about the riding until I had pictures (pictures or it didn't happen...).

Of course I've already been to Fergburger! Standard.

Have also been down to the Dream Track - there's some sweet smaller jumps down there and the Mini Dream. I do need to hike up to the top of the main Dream Track, I have no illusions that I want to ride it though.

I was planning on doing a practicalities piece, but I'm thinking I'm going to wait until I'm done here (hopefully well into next year) to write it as I don't know how it's all going to work out yet. If you do have any questions in the mean time, feel free to drop me a PM.
