Bought a one-way ticket to Melbourne

Melbourne is Jason Bourne’s (The Bourne Identity) younger brother, Mel.  I’m going to go visit him in Australia.

My flight leaves on 2/14/2011 at 7:45PM from SFO.  Since I’ll be flying west into different time zones, this will technically extend my valentine’s day by several hours, making this the longest valentines day of my life.

I’m going to arrive in Melbourne at 10:00AM (local time) on Wednesday, 2/16.  What a flight.

I’m going to park the RV long term somewhere.  Somewhere is yet to be determined


I had to quickly leave Boston since the freezing weather was finally causing damage to the RV.  I raced across the country in 79 hours to beat some storms that actually closed down the highway.

I’m now home for the holidays, enjoying the better weather.  My plans from here on out are currently:

December/January/February: Bay area/SF in the RV (Maybe trips around the West Coast)

February/March/April: Australia

April/May/June: Europe

June/July/August/September: NY (With some trips up to Boston)

September/???: Possible southern tour of the US?

With this plan, the RV will be sitting for 6+ months.  Anyone have ideas on ways to get it some use while I’m gone?  I was thinking of letting close friends/family borrow it if they wanted.
