Just for the record, I'm not saying all Aucklanders are wankers (just a proportion of people in Ponsonby), and so far my expereinces with Southerners have been all good, especially with Hairy Harry, thus my conversion to hunting-gathering.
Would also like to say thanks for the fish recipes, and that I think Islander said it best ... it all depends on the person ... but there's no denying certain Southern traits exist ... I guess I'll explore that more in part 2 ...
Merry Christmas from Wanaka.
One last thought ... my five year estimate of acceptance was perhaps a little naive, I now realise it's anywhere between 10 - 20 years ...
Actually Fletcher B, this could explain why so many people in Ponsonby have four-wheel drives, they're all secret hunter gatherers.
