    Talking Heading for Kiwi-land, George keep an eye on the kids for me

    Well, in three days, I will be on a plane for the beautiful city of Auckland for a week. Far, far away from the job, the textbooks. cellphones and computers.

    Anyone want to come jump with me?

    SKY JUMP: 192m (630ft) - NZ's HIGHEST JUMP

    Jumpstart your Kiwi adventure by leaping from Auckland's spectacular Sky Tower the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere! Fall at approx 75kph for around 16 seconds before slowing in the last few metres to land gently. Ground rush is unbeatable. Unlike bungy - there is no hanging upside down or bouncing around...You simply fall fast & smooth.... for 192m



    I may even be able to find a Kiwi fire station or two to visit! Stay safe and take care all. I may not come back!

    Say hi to the Kiwis for me Cheffie, I'll be down there in a few months. I've read about the Skyjump too, not sure if I want to leap off a perfectly good and solid building attached to a piano wire!!

    For God's sake be careful.

    Do you know where KIWI land is? It's on the bottom of the earth. If you don't hold on you will fall off!

    Isn't it like the dead of winter down there?
