Voyages of Discovery is the journal of the continuing travels of a wandering swagman on a manly adventure in the lands down under. First off, follow his manful exploits as he joins the English explorer Matthew Flinders on a circumnavigation of Australia, a voyage of discovery that includes extensive explorations of South Australia and Western Australia, the two states not journeyed to while on the first manly adventure in the land down under. Then, and as if that isn't manly enough, follow his manful exploits as he joins the English explorer James Cook on an exploration of New Zealand. On the North Island, he explores the volcanic White Island, fishes for rainbow trout on the beautiful Lake Taupo, hikes along the legendary Tongariro Crossing, and ventures into the underworld of the Waitomo Caves. On the South Island, he kayaks the rugged Abel Tasman coast, cruises the magnificent Milford Sound, and climbs the glaciers and mountains of the awe-inspiring Southern Alps. Follow him also as he hones his manly virtues in the many excellent BrewPubs in both Australia and New Zealand. Needless to say, this wandering swagman's most recent feats are still seldom seen in these, less than manful times.Also while studying my new guide to Australian 4WD adventures, I came upon the answer to the eternal 4WD question. ... those who frequent Happy Hour on a daily basis, I recreated using my 4WD guide, a manly diagram to better help the reader navigate through rough seas. ... Power from the gearbox first goes either to the transfer case in a part-time 4WD or to a center differential in a con- stant 4WD.
