uh-huh uh-huh! biggrin

Just booked the tickets, my new passport should be with me within a week and when it arrives I can apply for the online visa.
Details are as follows:

Leave London Heathrow 24th September 22:30 - Arrive ADELAIDE on 26th September 11:30
Leave SYDNEY 27th November.

So its two months of seeing you lovely lot ubblove

My plans are as follows:
Go to Australia.
Work way up SE coast staying with as many friends as possible.
Return to England 2 months on.


and thats about it, Ive spent ages thinking of what to do, then realised you would all know anyway. So, like Lightning did in London, im leaving myself in your hands ( umm ) If you reckon something would be good to do or see then tell me and I'll see if I can.

I want to go to lots of spinning meetings.
I want to meet as many of you as possible.
I wish to chase Bender naked through a field of corn. umm
I want to spend some time doing nothing on a beach.

Im going to this Common Ground thing too. Is there a spare tent/ space anywhere for me to squeeze into please? The JonCof International Tent Errecting Service, Mobile Skinning Up Workstation and Hug Distributor should also be fully functional. ubbangel
Can I get some sleeping space on the floor/ sofa/ spare room/ compost heap at your house please? *flutters eylids*

My questions:
Is CG like Play (99% HOPpers only)? or is it more of a public event where the average Joe Human will be walking around? umm
What will the weather generally be like for the duration of my stay?
Is there cake in Australia?
Can John Howard collect me from the airport in a monster truck?

Would it be worth me bringing my laptop to put all my pictures from my phone onto and to change the music collection on my phone? Reckon you this is a silly idea and I should just get a digital camera and a MP3 player instead?

Can I meet Crocodile Dundee? Can I? Can I?
Who is Bruce? confused

I assume I will need a plug convertor for any electronic equipment I bring. Can this be confirmed? This is a code red situation. I dont want to bring my white noise generator with me only to find out I cant plug it in anywhere.

I will probably have more questions at a later date of a serious nature, but I think thats all the major ones I need. Thanks everyone hug2 kiss

Oh, and by the way, I have NO interest in watching the Ashes in November ubblol


bounce Im very excited! bounce

Gnor: im going to brisbane already. wink

Monsieur le Maj: Dont pleh at me mister! nana Theres more people at CG, and its cheaper to get to for you. You really should go there as im not promising I can get over to Tasmania. Money may be tight. shrug

Just over a week to go before the Ucof lands. Is there a chance of someone meeting me at the airport please? I may be totally jetlagged, and the last thing I want is to get on the wrong bus and end up at Ayres rock. The first thing I will want is a cup of tea and a spliff! ubblol

Brettstar: Is it ok if I stay at yours from when i arrive, to the day of CG please? Or anyone who lives close to the airport? shrug

Adya: Cool, I think if the worst coes to the worst, I'll be getting a taxi. Working out busses, in a new country, probably with hardcore jet lag, may be a bit mental ubbloco
I have Pmed Josh about somewhere to stay, and im still awaiting a reply. I will have a few peoples mobile numbers, so can give them a ring if I land and still have not heard anything.

Hammocks have been bought. and theres 5 of them. 1 for me, and I believe 3 have been taken by PM, meaning theres one left. ubbrollsmile

I suppose I had better start packing seeing as I leave in 6 and a half hours... ubblol

See you all very soon! bounce ubbrollsmile bounce2

Posted:Valura Jon is definitely coming to see you. He has strict instructions to hug you loads for me and to smoosh and tickle Taj.

He's on his way to Hong Kong right now, then he goes onto Sydney, where he transfers onto a plane to Adelaide. He'll be at Common Ground... after that I think his plans are a little sketchy as to times and dates but he will be coming to see you. kiss
