Kea Campers in new Zealand

Daily Photo - Kea Campers in New Zealand

While I was in New Zealand, I got up close and personal with my Kea Camper.  That thing was my home for almost a month, and my wife, two kids, and I lived the heck out of it.  Before the trip, I did a lot of research to find the best one... I wasn't disappointed.  In fact, I liked it so much, I grabbed a bunch of pics of it!  I'll add them to the New Zealand Campers page in a bit. I will also add a bunch more information on there about suggested routes, tips, tricks, and more. I've been meaning to do that for a while... can't find the time.


Also, the Kea Campers people know about me and the site - they wanted to offer you a special deal. Just mention STUCKINCUSTOMS when you reserve, and you'll get all free camping equipment! Cool deal, eh?


I put a few things about the "Camper Van" experience on that page... the good and the bad. The best part? The kids having a blast in their "Clubhouse" upstairs above the driver. The worst part? Getting that beast up curvy, tight, uphill mountains... that caused a bit of unnecessary stress!


What Projects Am I Working On?

I am working on more cool stuff than I can talk about!


But, upcoming, I do have a full comparison of the new Photomatix (see the current Photomatix Review) and the Adobe CS5 Photoshop HDR stuff. I've been doing massive testing, as you might expect... and I am trying to put together something cogent for release soon. But, very briefly, so far Photomatix is faster and better with my recommended workflow.


Upcoming in the near future, I have a very long-form article about a wonderful adventure in Hollywood. It is taking forever to put together and is quite different from the usual post... but I think you will like it!


Besides all that, I've also been working on a huge new art project that I hope to display to you in the next few weeks. You guys may hate it... I dunno... I guess we'll see. I've received too much rejection in life to worry about it, so I'll just float it out there and see what you think!
