Mozilla Tree Adventures

Last week we had a few overseas Mozillians stop by the office on their way back from linux.conf.au. We took the opportunity to hold our annual Mozilla Auckland outdoors event, which for only the second time ever did not involve volcanoes. Instead we went to Tree Adventures out in Woodhill Forest. Basically you strap on safety gear, climb ladders into the trees (up to 14 metres above the ground) and conquer a variety of obstacle courses on wires from tree to tree. Flying foxes are also involved. It's tons of fun, unless you have a fear of heights as I do, in which case it's tons of fun mixed with just as much sheer terror. I was glad to be able to overcome my instincts and keep going; that sort of mental discipline is worth practising. I just hope none of my colleagues noticed me whimpering.

We followed up with a nice lunch at Hallertau.

Heh, that's not what I expected when I read the title.

Rob, Great photo! Do you have one including the ground? If I hadn't seen the photo, I would have geeked out and wondered about what's going on with the ASTs in my favorite browser. By the way, I have nominated you for a Liebster Blog Award: http://franklinchen.com/blog/2012/01/29/liebster-blog-award-5-blogs-you-should-check-out/
