Leaving for the airport in a few hours, so here’s the plan. A brief flight to LA and a bit of a layover will be followed by the long trek across the Pacific, Equator, and International Date Line — all in the same flight.
Scheduled arrival time in Sydney: the future. Something like early the 27th, all I know is that I’ll completely miss the 26th of September. (Aw, my favorite day of the year, too.)
Plan for Sydney: a day of sleeping. Two days of exploring. And then the whole reason for the trip, WE04. Can’t wait to meet everyone, it’s going to be an invigorating couple of days.
Afterwards a drive down to Melbourne (yes, I’m aware it’s a big spread-out country… but remember where I live) and a few days enjoying the sights. Yes, I’d love to have lunch/coffee/whatever with the local Melbourne crowd. Here’s the catch — I’d rather not coordinate it. Leave your contact details in the comments, and have a type A personality take the ball and figure it all out, and I’ll be there. Good day to plan for: the 5th.
So that’s that. Don’t expect much activity on here until mid-October. Take care, and enjoy the turning leaves for me.
