and didn't see any kangaroos or straight roads. So how do they know anything about driving in America.

,,, in the mid-east South Island an introduced species of kangaroo, called the Palmer wallaby, is being shot in high numbers because they're classed as pests. They're much smaller than Aussie's larger breeds.

As for driving in America, I found it easy enough as long as I had an idea of where I was headed and when to take the correct exits on freeways.

If you are a Kiwi and female and single would you marry me. If you are a Kiwi and male or a female who is married would you please considered adopting me. I would do anything to get back down to New Zealand. It has got to be the most beautiful country in world with some of the neatest people.

PS: How can anyone in New Zealand consentrate long enough to do a long study when the average family drinks 74 gallons of Scotch Whiskey each year?

Interesting. We just went to a nearby zoo and the Palmer wallaby was on display. Are these animals any challenge to a hunter (varmiter) or are they too tolerant of man and so no challenge? Are they good for anything - hides or meat? Why were they introduced? Inquiring minds (a varmiter) want to know. I'm looking for any excuse to visit!
