Last Minute Update

I know I said that last Friday's was going to be the last one before we set off to Fort Lauderdale but thought I'd sneak in one more.

The selection of clothing is now almost complete but may still change on reflection. Fitting it all into the case may require a further re-think. Just checked the Fort Lauderdale forecast and with lows in the teens and highs just over 20 °C, the recently discarded jacket may yet get a run.

What started this off was a thought of my postings to the 365 Project. Thursday 29 January will happen twice as a result of the crossing of the International Date Line just the other side of Samoa. This caused me to examine in some detail of what's in store for Thursday.

We will leave Moruya some time between 07:00 and 07:30 to drive the 2 hours to Queanbeyan to meet up with Natalie who will drop us off at the Canberra Airport by about 10:30.

Our flight leaves Canberra at 13:05 for a 55minute dash to Sydney where we will transfer to the International Terminal to board the flight to Dallas/Ft Worth at 15:25.

After a flight of 15 hours 20 minutes we arrive 13:45, some two hours, by the clock, before we left. The next leg departs DFW for Fort Lauderdale at 17:05 for the 2 hour 39 minute flight, arriving at 20:44. We should be at the hotel before 21:30. Total elapsed time for us, home to hotel, will be about 28 hours.

Sorry to be boring you with all these times and numbers but many people are not aware of what's involved. Having documented that I can now focus on other things.

Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony
