Just a quick update before I hit the road to Queenstown.
I just had this photo taken about 30 min ago up on Fox Glacier, NZ. I had never been in a helicopter before. It was amazing. I got about 15 min of video footage too.
Not having packed much in the way of cold weather clothing, I am wearing like 5 layers of clothes and a new wool sweater I got here. I also have my video camera, and a bunch of other stuff in my pants pockets, adding to the illusion of being much fatter than I really am.
…and to think I was scuba diving in the tropics last week.
