Rocked me to the core when I got the big news!!!! What a day!!! First time >500 in NZ. ... or anywhere outside California for that matter!! PB for Alex, and PBs for a few more too, (Congrats Asto on 400+ for Soundwave!!). And a perfect landing of the TSX too! Absolutely awesome. I'm so stoked that you guys scored an epic Tekapo day on the DS Fest, and so early, and such great speeds. Wow! The Gods are smiling on you DSFesters!!!!!
