My Locale best place in the world !?
About Me kia ora, i was born in '74 in the 'shadow of Aoraki' (Mt Cook) in a town called Twizel, in the South Island of New Zealand. i havnt lived there for quite some time, but i still call it home. im not getting any younger, but i love getting outdoors and acting the goat.
