Tomorrow, I’ll be boarding a flight to spend two weeks on the South Island of New Zealand.

Obviously, I won’t be updating Modern Hiker or responding to emails during this time, but should have plenty to talk about when I get back. I may be able to send updates toTwitter if I’m near any WiFi, but that’s not what I’m going there for in the first place, so don’t expect much!

You guys have been great in the comments lately, helping out other hikers and having some good discussions, so I think I’m going to leave the comments open. Please excuse any spam that gets through. I don’t know why term paper plagiarists think hikers are in their market, but oh well.

See you all when I get back! Happy hiking and take care on the mountains for me!
