BTW, I never said what I did.
-Rode on the Shotover Jet boat between canyon walls at nearly 60mph skimming over water
-Climbed an Ice Glacier in the middle of a rain forest (Franz Josef)
-Cruised Milford sound
-Downhill Mountain Biked and got picked up by a Helicopter at the bottom of a Canyon
-Rode an Quadbike (ATV) through mud, water, over rocks and crap
- FLIPPED the quadbike off a 6 foot embankment and rolled myself onto a barbwire fence bloodying my nose, scratching myself, tearing up my clothes, and injuring my knee
-Ate a traditional Maori meal that was cooked geothermally from a vocanically active area.
-Free abseiled (rapelled) down nearly 400 feet into this big hole in the ground. Underground caves and rivers abound.
-...then I had to climb up the same hole on a 150 feet ladder....imagine climbing up 15 stories on a ladder...even with safety line, it's scary
-Cruised the bay of islands on a speedboat at 45 knots or so.

Great pics. Did you see doubtful sound? I really want to go there.

Didn't go to Doubtful sound. Went to milford instead, which is very similar, and right next door (in Fiordland). I don't have pics as the memory card crapped out on those pictures! I do have it on my SLR, 3 rolls, so I will need to develop and have them digitized ($$$). GImme a day or two to put those pictures up.
