There are quite a few Lord of the Rings filming locations around Queenstown area - so off we headed to see what we could see, geek time for Glenn. We went to an ancient beech forest (lothlorien in the films), then we drove down the lake (over the river Dart) passed Mount Earnslaw (opening scene of the two towers), stopped for a pie in Queenstown, then ...

Back on solid ground I got a look at the video taken of my jump preparation, jump as well as the still shots. Although there was no sound, I could see all the f bombs I ...
