Re: THE FLYING TORTOISE

Kinda looks like the Flying Tortise crashed on landing.

Is that a body bag on the front rack????

Thanks for posting those pics! I'd never seen the inside of his rig. Really cool! I read that blog regularly but never saw a link to any pics.

Re: THE FLYING TORTOISE

And to make you more jelous-in NZ, the beach is all public (and being an island, its all beach). "this looks like a good spot" pull up + park + you're home. You might not have another person for 20 miles.
This was a crowded beach (see? there a couple of other people there!) in the center of Gisborne.

Love the interior! Not sure I like the ditch seen though.
