So we pretty much have a NYD plan.. how about NYE??
I'll let you know details some time this week danielle so we can book flights..
As for surfing, ill gve anyone lessons haha im not exactly a surf guru but i can stand up.. so thats pretty much a good step forward haha by new year ill be alot better though!! =)
I'm 100% in for a bungee.. someone may have to give me a pep talk before though, and a skydive sounds like a plan too.. again, pep talk.. or a push.. will be needed haha
I wanted to bring my surfboard to Oz but its like 6' n im 5'3.. so probably not a good idea for backpacking! shame thou, ill be renting!

Camping.. im thinking with me being a rather small person, ill b renting this too when i get there.. as theres no way ill be able to carry it with the rest of my stuff (although i will hve a sleeping bag).. hopefully there will be space?

I am in the same boat as you dont think i am going to be able to lug camping equipment around with me.Will be renting also.

Get paid this thurs so can book my flight after then, will be so much fun having someone on the same flight

Cant wait to get there now!!

Hope evertone is good

here's a webpage for tents from 'Big W' variety stores in Sydney. http://www.bigw.com.au/sport/camping.html
8 person tent for A$228.00. They would have smaller tents as well.
Don't buy one of the folding chairs they are advertising though. You can get something very similar for about A$10.00.
And for keeping your drinks cold just buy an Esky (cooler box) and put ice in it.

Renting a tent probably isn't going to be your best option. You should be able to buy a small one comfortable enough for two people for A$40.00?
Cheers,
Keith

excited is an understatement and its soooo kool that ill have this trip to look forward to while im in oZ aswell, i have a
feeling this could be a highlight of my adventure
I am nervous i can't say im not but its a good nervous not apprehensive but more 'ooooh the unknown'
if that makes sense lol. Iv done a bit of travelling but never TOTALLY on my own so i think thats the scariest
for me. all those questions 'what if i dont meet anyone' 'what if im all alone' etc but im sure that there will be
soooooo many ppl in the same situation and thats what makes it a bit easier!

Have u got flights booked yet - what are your plans when u get to OZ you workin/travelling and how long you planning on staying for? Iv got 13 weeks and im off straight after my graduation lol. If you got any questions fire away ill do my best to answer them. bt 1 thing i always say to myslf is that once i had he travel bug i new ther was no going back and it is the best thing i have ever done and his is one thing i no i will do 4 the rest of my life, and if you dont try it you will never no! ;)

I'm starting to get more excited for NY in Sydney! As well as the 2 years im going to spend travelling.. =)
I've just started organising a going away party for all my friends and family to say goodbye lol
Also, i found out my uncle doesnt live too far outside sydney, in campbelltown.. about an hour drive?.. i also have a uncle around Ayres and a cousin somewhere, i cnt remember.. but they will all put me up when im in the areas which is nice to know, i think i can have a guest so if anyones still with me.. you have somewhere to stay too lol

Morning Everyone!

I emailed a few friends in the Sydney area to let them know of the plans. They told me it was "waaay" to for ahead for them to start planning, but I got a feeling a few might show up.

I am also def looking forward to this! NYE the past few years here have been a little boring, so I'm all for shaking things up. As to where we go, that is something I have no clue on, but I think as things get closer, we'll starting making more plans for the night. Hopefully we can pick up some smoothies the next day to help with the hangovers!

The thing I'm really excited about is that I quit my job in 1 week and I leave for New Zealand in 3 weeks. 3 months of nothing but hiking and camping in NZ! That is going to be AWESOME!!!

Hope everyone is doing well!
