Note that for all the banter here, we still haven't lured any lurkers to the fore.  Ai...  should we start threads in their name? 
Like "Lurker123, welcome to the forum, now do us a favour and introduce yourself, and we want to know your colour hair, and flavour of toothpaste too"   >:D :2funny:
lekker sweet as, y'all

Hi, my names Matt and I'm a ... sorry wrong forum! Seriously - serial lurker, don't know why, promise to try better.

Vital stats :

From: Zimbo  via long spells in Pietersburg / Polokwane , then London and Amsterdam
Age: Mid Thirties
Time in NZ : 8 years all in Welly
Work: In construction management
Loves: NZ but considering moving to Auckland because the winters too long in Wellington - I need more than 2 weeks summer!
Things I like to do : run long distances over mountain tracks, ditto for cycle, ditto for tramp. Odd round of golf. Road trips up the east coast. Hawkes bay = top place.

Enough now, hopefully all your appetites are whet.

Haere ra
Matt
