2 Eggs Tour Comes To An End!
Well it's been an amazing couple of weeks travelling around New Zealand launching CamperMate by cooking free bacon and eggs for tourists (and locals alike) for the 2 Eggs road trip..But the time has come for it to end! We've served over 750 people-58kgs of amazing Beehive streaky bacon, over 1200 eggs in 13 popular locations around New Zealand. The breakfasts have been a great way to talk directly with tourists and get amazing insight into the problems they are facing when travelling around this beautiful country. This insight will be bought into the ongoing development of the CamperMate project. Once we reached Auckland we cooked a breaky at the Westhaven Marina (Temporary Motorhome Park for the Rugby World Cup) which went down a treat (thanks to Gavin for the help!) before heading up to the Overnight Cruise 'Rock the Boat'-an awesome way to check out the Bay of Islands. We headed back to Auckland for a bit of a TV appearance on the Breakfast show which was fitting. In terms of weather, it's been pretty good aside from wind experienced in Dunedin and Coromandel, however today it was pouring down. Luckily it cleared enough to setup one of the trusty BBQ's for a cookup in front of the cameras! We had an awesome breaky ourselves at Dennys across the road from the TVNZ studios-guess what we chose-Bacon and Eggs! We've met some great people on this trip it's been awesome! Special thanks to YHA, Beehive Bacon, i-SITE, 'Rock the Boat' and all those individuals of which there are too many to thank but you know who you are! Thanks a bunch-Keep up to date with CamperMates progress on Twitter or Facebook! Adam and Simon :)
