I have posted this before but will say it again for any new members. My wife and I did an exchange with a couple from New Zealand. They came here to Olympia, WA and took our boat for a month up to Canada. We inturn went to New Zealand and took their boat for close to a month going all the way up north to the Bay of Islands. Without this exchange we would have never been able to see the land downunder. Since that time we have become very good friends and have visited several time more. I would highly recommand exchange as a way see other parts of the world. If any one would additional info please just e-mail me.
