Yeah I bought a cam last year and sold it this year. It was fun but not the be all and end all...
Since you're in Nelson why not some sort of Cat-boarding trip in the area?
That is a great idea and I agree with it, only thing is I will probably be getting a day or two at Baldface for free through work. Actually, I might end up there is weekend or next to do some work, but we will be bringing our boards and skis just in case...lol
