Larry And Will Go To New Zealand!

Our old friends Larry and Will–the West Virginian Mountain Men–are back on the road in this week’s article.

The first time we followed this traveling tandem, they took us to a rarely-visited destination: Antarctica. This time, they head south once more–as well as across hemispheres–to the equally intriguing New Zealand. 

Today they reveal their discoveries from their February 2010 journey, starting with North Island …

After touring Wellington, it was time to jump aboard and cross over to South Island.

South Island is where we’ll pick up next time…
