Ski Mt. Ruapehu!

I'm pretty sure that most of my two readers live in the Northern Hemisphere, where it is most likely summer -  unless you live in Oregon, where it's an iffy proposition from one day to the next.  However, in case I should develop a large following in New Zealand, I thought today's post would be appreciated.

Yes, it is now winter in New Zealand, and for all I know it's Wednesday as well.

If you have absolutely no fear of injury or death, you really should consider Mt. Ruapehu, on New Zealand's northern island, as a vacation spot.  The following checklist should be used to decide if you are a good candidate for this destination. You must answer "No" to each of the following questions in order to qualify as a Raupehu visitor.
  1. Do you have any concerns about the dangers of skiing? 
  2. Do you have any concerns about being on one of the world's most active volcanoes?
  3. Does walking on icy glaciers make you edgy?
  4. Are you easily chilled?
  5. Do you run slowly when chased by lava? 
  6. Would anyone miss you if you did not return home?
So consider carefully, and please send a post card should you survive.
