It's my boyfriend, Andrew, and I. I'm from NY and he's from Cornwall. We met in New Zealand, where I've been living for 5 years. We've decided to move on and Australia is the next stop. We've got our WHV and no idea what we're doing after NYE in Sydney. :) I always had great fireworks in NY growing up but it's been a few years and I'm super excited. We are also very excited to being in a more urban setting than we've been. We just got our tent today- wahoo!

I'm going to send out PM's to all those that have not confirmed. I was in Sydney yesterday the 18th, and it was fantastic and reminded me of San Francisco with all the hills and trees everywhere. Kings Cross was pretty cool! If all goes well, I may actually be living in Sydney at the time, or will be staying after to work if the job(s) go through!

See everyone in a few weeks!

Alrighty, PM's have been sent and hopefully I get some more confirmations!

Just want to point out how awesome it is that this thread has 251 replies and almost 10,000 page views! Keep the activity alive, post up when you all start your travels, or where you currently are! I know Mike and Emma are already out and about! Others are also leaving soon!

Looking forward to seeing everyone!!

Keith, I've got an excel file with the user names of who's attending, their real names to help with reservations, any guests, and the dates they arrive and depart. I'll send it over once I get some more confirmations form the messages I just sent!

At this point, with the CONFIRMED people and their guests, the count is 28. Including the UNCONFIRMED and their guests, the count is 38. Which means we have 2 slots available and that is is all.

It is IMPORTANT that if you are on the unconfirmed list, you need to confirm as soon as possible to keep your spot! I have a few PM's from people who are requesting a seat but I have put them on standby at the moment.

At this point, ALL 40 slots are filled up, if all the unconfirmed people confirm. I'm leaving the current list as is until December 7th. If at this time, you are still unconfirmed, I am removing your slot and giving it to people who are on standby. This event has gotten very large and we only have 40 slots available.

If you are not on the list and want to attend, send me a PM and I will add you to the standby list.

If you haven't confirmed, confirm ASAP!

I believe Keith had mentioned it was 10 minutes from the transit center. So if that is correct, the transpo should be fairly easy!
