I’m leaving on a jet plane…

“I’m leaving on a jet plane, don’t know when I’ll be back again” (written by John Denver and made famous by Peter, Paul, and Mary in 1966)

It’s travel day today and I do actually know when I’ll be back again as I have to be back at work on a specific date. I have an early flight out of Canberra to head to Albany via Melbourne and Perth. My accommodation is booked, I have a last few minute purchases to buy once I get to my hotel and I have arranged to have a gas cylinder delivered to my hotel by one of the Albany outdoor stores. I’ve also arranged to post my duffle bag back home for Gill to bring when she meets me once I finish my trip.

Tomorrow is the big day after more than two years of planning its time!  I’ll be posting on a daily basis, or at least as far as phone/data signal allows and will try to stick to my Wednesday podcast episode release schedule as best as I can although on some weeks I am likely to upload late depending on where I happen to be. Follow me on Facebook and listen to the podcast to hear how I’m going. Im happy to answer questions as I can but my response time may be a bit erratic.

At the Canberra airport for the first of my three flights today, it’s 5:00am and I’m raring to go
