    ... my style points will blow hers out of the water. At the top I find out that Caleb missed my jump as he tried to move to get a better view. I rescue a girl who somehow has the local cat chewing on her arm and is not letting go. I get a high five from her boyfriend after his jump. I hardly recall the jump or what happened. No jubilation - just a DVD confirming that I am an idiot. The bungy was delayed so much that I have but 15 minutes at home to calm my nerves ...

On our short drive to Taupo ...

    ... pylons stretching forever. Nearing lake Taupo we turned off the main drag to skirt around a smaller lake. Good idea, because the was less traffic, the woods were more interesting and we saw smoke pouring out of the sides of a volcano. Eventually we reached our lake and, at the north end, our township.

    ... us up" expressions and headed out. It only took about 5 minutes for an elderly, lost, Scottish couple to pick us up but they were headed in another direction so dropped us at an intersection. Next, a property manager for one of the multi-million dollar mansions in the area talked our ears off as he drove us 2/3rds of the way to our destination.
