So far unemployment is a gas

Here are a few pictures to show what I've been up to thus far:

A pretty self-explanatory picture up on the side of the road while going over the Haast Pass. My sentiments exactly:


Me wearing some gear from Lord of the Rings on a tour in and around Queenstown. The cloak was insured for $10,000 because it is (allegedly) a prop actually used by Sean Astin (Samwise Gamgee) in the movies.


Me launcing myself from the 134-meter tall Nevis bungy jump outside Queenstown:


Tomorrow it's off to Milford Sound and the wonderful drive between Queenstown and that particularly scenic body of water and its surroundings. I'll be flying to Sydney, Australia on Nov. 22nd and be on the poisonous continent until the first week of December. More from the road as I can manage the internet access.

I bet you don't have a bungy jump like that in Kansas!

It all looks like loads of fun. Enjoy Australia!

A cloak? A $10,000 cloak? Forget the checklists, and just enjoy each day for what it brings.

I've been told The Simpson Desert was closed last week. Better double check your booking. TH.

TH, it doesn't look like we'll be passing through that bit of Outback, so all's well. Thanks for looking out for me, though.
