REVIEW: Big Boys Toys Central Districts

1982 DeLorean DMC-12 Time MachineMost people have ‘heard’ of the Big Boys Toys show…but many don’t really know ‘what’ exactly it is.

This years event was perfect timed to take a mini-mid-exam-break-Roadtrip with my Teen up to Big Boys Toys Central Districts (Palmerston North) and check it out.

and to answer the questionIs Big Boys Toys just a hive of testosterone and full of 80 billionty Men?

I didn’t 100% know what to expect, except from what I had seen on the Big Boys Toys website and Facebook and clips of the larger Auckland show.

All I knew was I LOVE this sort of stuff, so I was in like Flynn.

It might surprise you that I, Wellington Chic, am a tom-boy from way back when.  Growing up with 3 older brothers and a Dad that could fix and build just about anything set me up as a chic who was into practical stuff.

It also means I appreciate loud noisy cars, flash slick expensive cars, Motorbikes that flip, Power Tools that whip things into shape, clever inventions, clever technology and the smell of old leaded Petrol and workshop grease…you know what I mean…the smell of a workshop…?  No?  Ok, maybe it’s just me, but hey it smells good!

What I was MOST looking forward to at BBT were these 3 things:

• The matt black Lamborghini Aventador
The FMX Extreme Sport show featuring Levi Sherwood
• An exact replica of the DeLorean from Back to the Future!

Yup, I’m also a bit of a geek like that and had a high School crush on Marty McFly.

So what did we find at Big Boys Toys?

Walking in it was teeming with people…

ahem…I mean teaming with MALES…

80 Billionty Males to be exact…ok, maybe not, but alot of males all in one place!

Yes!  It was of course to be expected, as the show is a Men’s Lifestyle show…aimed at Males.

But it really was raining Men, in a huge variety of ages from the young to the old.  I spotted a few women as we made our way around and they were just as excited about what they were seeing as I was.

Was it all just Bogans and Petol-heads?

No, quite the opposite.

Sure there were some Bogan’s and some Petrol-heads and even a few bikers…but it was mostly very average-joe-kiwi-blokes enjoying a fun day out with their mates or with their kids.

What was the highlight of the show?

For me, it was hands down getting to sit in a 1982 DeLorean DMC-12 Time Machine.

An exact replica of the DeLorean from Back to the Future that Mat from Hero Car Hire has painstakingly built up over the years to the amazing movie replica it is now.

Mat was also the best host, he was talkative, put up with my obvious fan-girling and took me through the cars paces with all it’s lights and sounds.  He took me back-in-time to the date of my birth and being able to see the car speed up, the Flux Capacitor kick in and then see the Plutonium flash as being depleted was seriously-seriously cool.

Thanks Mat for being so passionate about what you have built and talking yet another enthusiastic fan through your car as if it was your first.  You can find out more about the DeLorean on their website and it is also available as a Hero Experience.

Was the FMX & BMX as cool as it sounds?

Absolutely!  The main feature act of the BBT show was most definitely the FMX & BMX Extreme Sport Show!
With the insanely talented Levi Sherwood FMX freestyle rider along with fellow FMX riders Nick Franklin & Mitch Mchardy.

Levi is a local boy from Sanson, just outside of Palmerston North and is carving it up on the world Red Bull X-Fighters stage and winning title after title.  Just check out his video from his course he has made at his home.

What you guys pulled out of your trick bag was heart stoppingly awesome and you have fantastic talent.  Being able to judge your stunts so perfectly with the pitch of the Arena Manawatu roof and land them so smoothly just show’s how world-class you all are.

You had us all gasping and enthralled with the jumps you all pulled off and the shapes your bodies contorted into in mid-air!

Paul Langlands BMX Dirt Rider and his BMX freestyle friends were a great accompaniment to the FMX with their flips and tricks showing such skill and experience.  I know it’s probably not a word you want me to describe it as, but you make it all look so ‘graceful’ as you are leaping into the air.  The model car racers showing us their tricks before the show started were also a surprising highlight for us all, man those little things can get some air!

The show was epic, I just wish NZ crowds would whoop, clap and cheer louder!  I was clapping my little heart out while trying to capture the action on my iphone as they were all amazing.  Cheer louder NZ!

Did you find your High School Car Crush?

I sure did!

2014 Lamborghini Aventador, be still my beating heart.

This car is damn sexy and I could just picture myself taking this on the School run of a morning.

Granted, I wouldn’t be able to fit in any of the Teens friends on pick up…oh well, back to Public Transport for them all.  In matt black it just upped its cool factor 10 fold.

The Lamborghini was my High School Car Crush from the 90’s and still is today.

I have only ever seen one other in the flesh, back when I was 17, a bright yellow one was parked outside the Monte Carlo Casino where I was visiting with my parents, they indulged me with a pic!
Yup, my parents flouted Monaco’s age law and took me in for a glimpse of this crazy casino lifestyle!

What about the Bond car?

The Bond edition Aston Martin DB9 GT was unveiled at BBT from the new Bond Movie Spectre.

Yes, it is flash and all and looks super nice…but if I’m honest a bit ‘meh’…

Now in saying that, I would have happily taken it for a spin and I know it would have been awesome…but I’m just not awed by Aston Martins like I am other cars.

Whereas the new 2015 458 Ferrari GT Speciali, the new Ford Mustang, The new Ranger NIGHTHAWK in matt black, the Polaris Slingshot SL LE they are all right up my alley :-)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What else can I see at BBT?

So so much!  Classic Cars, souped up boy racer Cars, Muscle Cars, electronic bikes, Harley Davidson’s, Super bikes, off roaders…quite literally a vehicle to suit everyone’s fantasies.

Thanks James from Harvey Norman for humoring us and very patiently showed us how the Glideboard worked, I was kinda stoked to learn you could clock up 20km on it in one go!
Would be a super fun thing to Ride to School?  Honestly would have loved to have a blat on one of these myself…but maybe another day.

The Hyper Stimulator’s where you can simulate you are driving a v8 super car around Bathhurst or other famous tracks around the world. They had queues a line a mile long to have a turn, OK, not a mile, but long.

Was there some exciting new technology?

We were given a glimpse into the newest prototype of the Hendo Hoverboard the Hendo 2.0 (Beta 4 Engine Prototype).

An exciting development and I look forward to seeing where this is in a year or two’s time.  We got to see it hover back in forth between the two hosts as they tossed it around the platform.

Very cool to think that this technology is not that far from being accessible.  You can check out Tony Hawk riding a couple of Hendo Hoverboard’s here.

Did they have other things there apart from Cars?

I’m also a sucker for cool things, techie things and things that would make my life easier, quicker..

So I spend ages at the Breo All Back and Breo iFoot Foot Massager stand getting to try out their super unique Foot Massager.
Oh my gosh, it was amazing, it actually did feel like someone was massaging my feet with hands…so a little bit creepy…but worth the creep, because it was awesome.  A hefty price tag, but worth it if you have spare dollars to spend.

Glam Screens Selfie Ring & Phone Stand impressed me with their super simple invention that was actually really-really clever.  I’m not a selfie taker (unless goofing with my friends or teen), but I see benefits of this little device that attaches to the back of your phone…even if just for not having this happen when you are reading stuff upside down!

There were many other stalls dotted around the show featuring everything from golfcart Segways, Power Fits, X Hoses, Model Cars, an open stage to let your inner Drummer have a blat on the drum kit, even electronic Hookah!

The Beef Jerky stand was amazing and I meant to go back and buy some, but my Teen distracted me on my way out.  Going to hunt you out in my supermarket!

Milwaukee Power Tools…oh my gosh, I could have spent hours in their stand just playing with all of the power tools, as that was exactly how this stand was set up.

All of their power tools were laid out with walls prepared ready for you to hammer, screw, cut, sand, blast, destroy and just simply ‘play’.  I tried this one M12 Cordless Multi-Tool.

Did BTT’s meet my expectations?

It totally exceeded my expectations.

I enjoyed it even more than I thought I would.  Now I want to also see the Auckland show next year.

Was it value for money/entertainment?

Absolutely, with tickets priced at under $30 and good discounts for early birds, it was excellent value for money and you could make a whole day of it.
Note:  I was hosted by Blomfield PR.

1982 DeLorean DMC-12 Time Machine

Is it too showy, snoby or seems like everyone is up themselves?

kinda is, but kinda not…if that makes sense.

It’s very laid back, but professional.  You could come to this show from any income level of society and still just enjoy seeing the toys and the show.

All of the stand hosts talk with you freely and everyone is encouraged to try things out.

Is there food?

Yes, most important question when heading out on an adventure!

If I’m not into Cars and this sort of stuff, will I enjoy it?

In all honestly, you probably won’t.

What was the atmosphere like?

The atmosphere was chilled and relaxed, but positive as everyone was buzzing with what they saw.

I wondered before I arrived if you would be able to literally smell the testosterone in the air, but no, you saw alot of fan-boying, but not too much grunting.

Is it suitable for all ages?

Kind of…if there is an interest, take them no matter what age they are.  But probably best suited from 7 years old to Teenagers to Adults to Grand Parents.

So overall was it lame or cool (as my teen questioned before going along)?

Seriously cool, it had a chance of being lame…but it soooo wasn’t.

My Teen also gave it a big tick of approval and she added that that wasn’t just because it was teaming with teenage boys!

What surprised me the most?

To find a 1962 MK1 Hamilton Jet 30 Boat that had been rebuild and relaunched in 2012 with a MK2 Zephyr 6 Motor.  Only 174 of them were ever built!  Way cool.

Learn about Blogging while Multi Tasking

.
I really wanted to listen in the NZ Bloggers Network’s Blogging learning sessions on the Livestream hookup on Video Blogging tonight…but life was getting in the way!

They had You Tuber ‘Aly Ford’ from Psycho Traveller presenting, sharing her insight, tips, tricks and practical advice from her success thus far on You Tube.

Also a member presentation by Callum, Ignatius Manaloto and Steve Milleron on improving blog engagement, simple design and content tips.

But I had to be in 4 places at once and couldn’t do it all.

I was just finishing up at work, I was meaning to be home hours earlier when it was starting.

Multi tasking Single Parenting mode switched on, so made a new plan, I:

• Downloaded the Livestream App onto my iphone

• Logged in

• Hit the link to ‘Basics of Video Blogging – with You Tuber Aly Ford from Physco Traveller‘ by NZ Bloggers Network

• Popped in my Bluetooth earpiece

• Hit Play!

• Quickly finished up essentials at work while I listened to the opening announcements and packed upYay, I was able to listen (& watch out the corner of my eye) in to the Video Blogging event while the following happened over the next hour or so…

• Fired off a few quick comments to engage and shared the link via Twitter and Facebook while listening in• Quickly finished up essentials at work while I listened to the opening announcements and packed upYay, I was able to listen (& watch out the corner of my eye) in to the Video Blogging event while the following happened over the next hour or so…

• Then with my earpiece in and my iphone in my pocket, I closed up my building while still listening in

• Jumped in t
he car and started driving while listening in

• Hopped out at the Urgent Pharmacy (I was too late for a ‘normal’ pharmacy) – walked through the carpark – hit pause – bought what I needed – short convo with the lovely lady there – hit play and kept listening further

• Jumped back in the car and continued driving while listening in

• Hopped out at the supermarket and crossed the carpark while listening in (checking triple for traffic!)

blogging learning sessions      Blogging learning sessions

• Hit pause – while I rang in our takeaway order (yup, no home cooking tonight!) – hit play again while I entered the supermarket and grabbed the few essentials I needed while listening in

• Through the self checkout with my items so could keep listening in

• Jumped back in the car and round the corner to the pick up food – jumped out – hit pause while I picked up – they weren’t in a talkative mood, so I was out of there in 30 seconds – hit play again and back in the car while listening in

• Drove home – into carpark and reversed into my ridiculously tricky angled carpark while listening in

• Gathered all the bags from the car – raced up the stairs and into our Apartment while listening in

• Hit pause to chat with Miss 15 about her day – she was knee deep into her Homework so she didn’t chat for long til she refocused again as she is keen to get in lots of study for her upcoming exams

• Hit play again while I unpacked groceries and my bags from the day while listening in

• Grabbed the Trophy off our Bookshelf that Miss 15 has to return tomorrow and dug in the cupboard seeking out the Silvo while listening in

• Got changed, sorted washing and closed blinds while listening in

• Dealt with dishes and trundled up and down the stairs 6 times doing Parenting/Home/Mom type stuff while listening in

• Hit pause – Sat down with Miss 15 to work on something with her for a bit

• She then focused on her own thing again so I hit play again

• Watched through to the end – wooohoo!

It would have been great to be at the Video Blogging event in person in Auckland, but hooking in via Livestream and listening in (and glancing at the screen sometimes) worked incredibly well.

Sure, I missed a bit, but there was SO much great info loaded into these two presentations that I will happily watch/listen to them again latter.

They had a really great Q&A session at the end too with bloggers asking many things I’m sure we all have wanted to know.

Blogging learning sessions

Don’t have time to sit for 1 & 1/2 hours to watch a Livestream?

Then I encourage you to try what I did next time and listen in while you do other things.

All you need is:

• Livestream website – Desktop, tablet, ipad, iphone or Smartphone
  or
• Download Livestream App (more streamlined on a device) Apple/Android for your tablet, ipad, iphone or Smartphone

• Earphones or Bluetooth Headset
• Sign up to the Livestream site and Login
• Follow NZ Bloggers Network
• Now you are ready to listen/watch/multi task  :-)

If you miss the Livestream totally, you can watch it again latter by playing it whenever you want to.

How cool is it to continue learning about Blogging while doing everyday tasks!

I have been working away tonight and feeling slightly pleased with myself, that even though my day was crazy that I had kicked this multi tasking single parenting lark in the ass tonight…

Then I wondered, why I was so damn hungry?

Crap…in all of my brilliant multi tasking I forgot to eat at all tonight and now it was 11.35pm and I wasn’t going to last til morning.

Finishing this post off now while I eat a Apricot Jam toasted Bagel…so maybe I’m not kicking ass in everything…but it still tastes pretty good  😉

Have you used Livestream before to watch an event?
Did you watch the Video Blogging learning session?

How to go early morning running in Wellington

How to go early morning running in Wellington

Morning running Wellington

So I did something this morning I never do…

If I’m honest it kinda really sucked and was kinda seriously awesome all at the same time :-( :-)

Nothing ground breaking…or internet breaking.

Nothing earth shattering.

But a big deal for me.

I went for a Run…

But not just ‘any’ run.

Going Running is not toooooo obscure for me, as I flit through periods of my life of being runner and running and entering races…and being consistent at it and perfecting my slightly faster than walking running style…but also flit back to not running for months in between.

But why was this Run so different?

I went early morning Running in Wellington…yup, in the early hours of this morning…before work!

I have never in my whole life ever accomplished that…ever.

This, to me was ground breaking…earth shattering…a big deal.

For all the millions of you out there who are runners before work, and wonder why it is so ground breaking to me, well it’s because I have never been early morning running in the 30+ years of my life!

I have always been an after work, after school even until late in the evening runner.

I always liked the concept of early morning running, it sounded good, popping out for a quick run before you head to work…

But the execution of it, the reality of it, never-ever happened.

The earliest I have ever Run in my day (bar entering races) would be 3pm.

I mean we water ski in the early hours of the morning when there is the best water…we Snow Ski sometimes even being one of the first on the mountain…on School Camps we are up at a sparrows fart off out tramping….hey in summer we even early morning swim out to the raft at 6am…

Early morning running – nope, nada, never!

As a Single Parent to a very busy Teenager we always have so much going on of a morning, we are up ridiculously early as it is, to get out the door to Sports Training, School and work each day.

Then there is the over-riding issue…I cherish my sleep ALOT and sleep cherish’s me back just as much.

So the thought of sacrificing sleep to go running just has never ever won in my book life world and it never wins.

Until today.

So how after 30+ years did I change an un-habit of a Lifetime?

These are my tips that got me out the door this morning, try them for yourself.

How to go for an early morning Run:

(when it feels like the most foreign concept in the world)

Mental preparation
I had been working myself up to this morning for a very-very long time. With many false starts.
Many many many snoozes of my billionty alarms.
But this week I was very focused, very determined and very planned.

Weather
Look at the forward forecast and target a fine sunny morning.  Sunrises and sunshine gives a great incentive to get out there.  Compared to rain, hail, sleet and Wellington hurricanes.

Equipment Prep:

› I lay out my Tights, Singlet, Sports Bra…even in order or what goes on first!

› My Running Sneakers* were at the ready even with socks dangling in them waiting for my foot/s.

› I put my hairbrush, hairtye, facecloth, toothbrush in centre front in the bathroom.

› In front of the front door I placed my Spibelt*, SNAP LOCK® bag (for my iphone*), my house key, my $10 note and my Running whispy jacket thing with a Tissue and that barely sugar (for emergencies if I keel over halfway along the waterfront) in it’s pocket ready to go.

Meaning I didn’t have to look for anything at all, it was all there.

Morning running Wellington

Plan your Timeline
On a Post-it note, I mapping out working backward my times then stuck it beside my bed.
So them there was none of this ‘how much time do I have’ while drowsily waking up and talking myself out of it.

› Alarm time
› Get up time
› ‘Really’ get up time
› Out the door time
› Get Back time
› Small celebration dance (Carlton-style) time – that I actually made it happen
› Shower time
› Leave for work time

Sustenance
I lay out my Magic Bullet Cup and ingredients for a small easy smoothie for as soon as I jumped out of bed to have something in my stomach (so I had less chance of keeling over).
Also nothing worse that rifling in the plastics cupboard at the hour of the morning trying to find that damn elusive bullet cup (I hate my plastics cupboard).

No Kids
I picked a day that Miss 15 ways away, so I knew I wasn’t going to get delayed by her needing something or even have to think about getting her out the door.  I needed no obstacles, including parenting obstacles even if they were only in my head.

Sleep in an un-comfortable bed

My Bed is just so so so damn comfortable.
Seriously I have the best damn bed in all of land.  I have had it for a billionty years, like it’s a Wellington Beds circa 1997 and is still A-Mazing.
Wellington Beds, after all these years I feel like you are secretly still conspiring against me going out early morning running every morning 😉

But as I lay there this morning awake, in my ridiculously comfortable said bed and saying to myself “you have been planning this for donkey’s years, I know your bed is ridiculously comfy and you could loll here for another hour in snoozy sleepy bliss, but come on damn it today is the day” and got all Oprah-fied and told myself “Live your Best Life”…
“Yes to sleeping sometimes…but not today…today is your independence day” all Bill Pullman/President like…
Ok, so now I was cracking myself up at my cheesy Hollywood inspiration, but it got me up.
Thanks Oprah and Bill.
Comfy bed = so much harder to go early morning running.

Will I do it again…go early morning running…probably…maybe…

Probably not tomorrow…hey who am I kidding probably not even next week.

But now I know I can…

Now I know it kinda worked…and what helped.

Now I know I didn’t keel over and die (well nearly at the lights after 10 minutes into it)…but at least I had with me my emergency Barley Sugar…and emergency eftpos card for if Barley sugar didn’t kick in and I had to limp home in a Taxi!

Ok peeps tell me…

When do you Run?
Are you an early morning Runner?
Or what time do you prefer?
What helps you get out the door?

 

Wednesday morning UPDATE:

So…um…this happened again this morning!

How long does it take to crack an un-habit and turn it into a habit I wonder?

28 more times?

54 more times?
