50 Pound Limit for Middle Earth

Not that I’d know firsthand. But
you might want to bring a raincoat.
It’s probably green for a reason.
And hey, you might want to take
a flashlight that doubles as a
lantern, which also doubles as a
blunt weapon. I’ve checked. They
don’t allow tasers in checked baggage
or carry-on. Promise you’ll take a
couple of warm fuzzy jackets. Upfront
you won’t know another soul, and who
knows what a Wellington Winter is like?
You might have taken us too. But you won’t
gain a lick of independence that way,
so take our Go-Pro from the desk in our
bedroom. Just go, and break in your new
hiking boots, – their lovely blue spell
shell shuffling their way through Middle Earth.

[for Real Toads] some new shoes for my eldest daughter’s upcoming adventure studying abroad in New Zealand. I’m thrilled to announce she has also opened an obligatory blog to journal her travels to NZ and Thailand… you know, so her dad and I can see where all our money’s going:) Follow her at Mackenzie In Middle Earth to see her wearing those new Ahnu Boots we got her for Christmas. Her trip begins this February.

  1. The motherly voice made me smile. I like the way you have jumbled up all the points of advice. i hope your daughter deals well with rain.. it never stops in NZ in winter.

  2. you getting that tee shirt that reads ‘my daughter and my money went to NZ and all I got was this lousy….” hope she has a blast! and you too ~

  3. Wow – that’s so cool! Is your daughter more of a Hobbit, Elf or Human? I love the name of your daughter’s blog! I hope you will mention it again around the time she starts out. I’d love to have a look, but I’ll never remember by February, lol.
