    Noooo way, no sleepage for me anyway!! First time spending leisure time in LA (flew into/out of LAX this year but never left the airport), and only the Friday and Saturday there, so I don't want to sleep through it :D

    My lovely wife will probably want to sleep as much as possible though - any break away from our two squids she likes to try and get back some of her sleep deficit :P

    I don't want to sleep but flying east is so hard! I'm going to try to sleep as much as I can on the flight and try to stay up. We leave 9am Sydney and arrive the same day around 6/7am.

    We are coming from Sydney (via Brisbane) --> Los Angeles (18th Jan) - 2 day hop on hop off bus tour, Ice Hockey game, Universal Studios, Nightwish/Amorphis gig

    LA --> Miami (22nd Jan) -pre party! :heavydrink: 70K, 1 day hop on hop off bus tour

    Miami --> NYC (27h Jan) - 2 day hop on hop off bus tour, night bus tour, Ripley's, Empire State Building, American Museum of Natural History, Ghost tour at Grand Central Station, Laduree!!

    NYC --> LA (30th Jan) - 2 days at Disneyland!

    LA --> Sydney (2nd Feb, geting home 4th Feb)


    Man, I'd give almost anything to hit the Gibson Amphitheater on my way down to Miami. If I'd had an extra grand and a half I would have, but this year's trip was decided to late and ill-planned. As much as I want to say next year, I doubt something like this will happen again. Oh well... I'll have to stalk you onbroad so you can tell me how amazing the show was!

    We leave Edmonton for Miami at around 2:00 AM Sunday, spend the lunch hour in Minneapolis, land in Miami in late afternoon. Preparty looks unlikely for us, so we're probably just going to get some extra sleep in the day before so we can spend more time awake on the ship. We head back to the airport after the cruise, and arrive back in Edmonton around midnight on Friday. No other plans at all - this is a single goal trip for us, distractions aren't in the budget :P

    21st - Leave home Saturday morning and arrive in Orlando late that evening. Meet up with Kevin and certainly feast on stroopwafels and salmiak before crashing for the night.

    22nd - Wake up with more stroopwafels then maybe some short Orlando touristy activity before driving to Miami. Stop on the way for Rock n' Roll Ribs and, hopefully, meet up with other forumites there. Then make the rest of the trek to Miami, drop off luggage someplace, check out the Beach Party and then head for the Pre-Party

    23rd to 27th - Return to Valhalla!!

    27th - Fly home
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    21st Jan: arrive in Miami @ 19:35
    22nd Jan: beach party, pre-party
    23rd Jan - 27th Jan: tbc
    27th Jan - 3rd Feb: Miami, not sure yet what we're doing, except:
    28th Jan: my birthday, heavy drinking on South Beach
    3rd Feb: departure @ 18:00
    4th Feb: arrive in Helsinki @ 16:20

    We rented a flat on Ocean Drive for the week after the cruise. Most likely we'll rent a car on Monday (and return it on Friday on our way to the airport) and go see some gators, the zoo and Rock'n'Roll Ribs. I don't want to make too tight a schedule.

    Before: New York (probably 3 days)
    After: Havana or Mexico City (or perhaps both, for one week)
    Still have to book the flights and hotels though.

    Last year we rented a car in Miami and drove to San Francisco in 18 days (via New Orleans, San Antonio, Chiricahuah, Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Death Valley, L.A. and Yosemite). Let's see whether we can still beat that :D

    you are aware that Rochester, NY is a fairly long drive from Boston, right?


    Yes! Road trip! :D Plus I'm not the one driving. According to my friends it's a 6 hour drive. I'll be sure to stock up on beer. :cheers:

    Wow! that sounds awesome! I've always wanted to do a pyramid trip, though I have seen several archaelogic zones separately. Enjoy!

    Meant to mention that I spent a good bit of yesterday watching NatGeo Wild, as they were doing some kind of big cat marathon with Cougars, Mountain Lions, Cheetahs, etc. Hopefully, we could get a small group together. I wish their website was a little more specific on the cost of tours.
