Kiwi Burglars Foiled by Baja Ha-Ha Souvenirs

From today's 'Lectronic Latitude, comes word that the personal items of the Conger family from the Seattle-based Lagoon 380 Don Quixote have, to a great extent, been recovered.

* * *

"The Don Quixote girls arrived safely in New Zealand. We rented a house here in a suburb south of Auckland far from the busy city life. We named our rental 'Chicken House' after the Rhode Island Reds that browse the property daily. Two days after moving some of our bags into the house, thieves broke in and took 7 of the 10 pieces of luggage we had moved to New Zealand. Those bags contained basically everything we owned: clothes, electronics, nautical gear, and all the girls' personal items such as diaries, souvenirs and trinkets."

Thus begins the account of Toast Conger. To read the entire article, go to:
