Longest Plane Ride Ever

Today I leave on the longest plane ride I have ever taken.  I'll be heading to New Zealand to join some of the Salomon team as we explore Anna Frost's backyard.  The trip will conclude with the Tarawera Trail RaceFrançois and I will run the 100k.  Anna, Greg, Emelie, and Ricky will all run the 60k.  I am very excited for this new adventure but completely lost in what to pack.  For example, Anna says the leaves are turning yellow and the wind is starting to blow from Antarctica so I will need warm clothes, but I look at the weather report and it says 75F as a high and 53F as a low.  That is summer here in the Pacific Northwest!  Being that we will be in the mountains, it will be colder for sure.  So I have packed a variety for varied conditions!  I will be posting as I am able the adventures of our trip with photos.  The trip is still a bit of a mystery to me, so I am unsure when I will be able to get online.
The 100k course. The race organizers just posted that we will likely be doing the Fire Route as the area has received little/no rain for a long while.

See you on the other side!
