Well... March 2011 was a blog free zone. Bizzy, Bizzy, Bizzy. The most noteworthy event in March was planning our trip to New Zealand for later this month.

I am looking forward to the trip, hot springs, mountains, beaches, trails and catching up with some "old friends" that we met way back in Canada.

However I am curious about a few things that I hope to square up on our trip.

First off, my brother has asked me if I can find the jurisdiction known as "Old Zealand", it's worth asking.

Also in a 3 days stint in the Abel Tasman National Park, I hope to unlock a mystery that has perplexed me for some time. Namely - will I be able to fit into a Kayak? It seems unlikely as I am barely able to wedge myself into a compact car. I'm sure those who know me will be laying even money - it isn't the size of the seat that confounds me it's the flexibility required to perch in the seemingly pretzelled position required. If I can pull it off I will blog with pride upon my return. Of course the option exists that I will be able to get in but I won't be able to dismount, in which case I will live out my dessert years paddling around the Northern Coast of the South Island...there are worst fates.
