Welcome to the south polar region :)

 

 

 

kryptonjohn:

 

But hey, there are places in NZ where you can walk from the East coast to the West coast in aboot 20 min, try doing that in Canada!

I always wondered where that was when people said that :)

 

 

 

so how about North to South in 1 hour then?

I've always wanted to have enough money to buy that land and link the East and West coast.
Then we have another Island in NZ. Hopefully I'd get naming rights :)

AFAIK in NZ you only own the top 30cm of your land, so you probably would only get 'development rights' for that canal after committing to a free bridge any.

 

 

 

An NZ 'suez' canal however would probably make you some coins by _adding_ a service to shipping/yachting that cant go under the bridge?
