Hi folks

 

The name is Ben, moved my wife and 4 year old daughter from San Fran USA to good ol' Christchurch about 6 months ago (my Wife is a kiwi)

 

Loving the country, the people and the protein NZ has to offer and the pace of life in general.

I like my tech related stuff, Big Tvs, nice shiny phones, home theater, and home automated gear etc.

 

Have spent most my spare time since arriving with my family exploring the countryside.

Yeah, I use to go duck hunting with my pops as a kid and I'd always ask to use the Duck caller but I'd call it a "quack pipe" as that's what I thought it was called. So you could imagine the hysterics when a young kid is begging to use Pop's quack pipe!
