I got my visa for $20.

So tomorrow, I take the flight, carrying the knap sack, filled with pills for my partially numbed feet from post-chemo effects, a couple different outlets to handle the current change in the wall plugs, a camel pouch that fills with water for hiking, a few books for the flight that I’ll leave on the plane, a latop, several pairs of reading glasses I brough from the dollar store, along with a couple different batteries and memory cards to my cameras, and a duffel bag with a couple nice shirts, bathing suit, a couple pairs of pants, new hiking books.

HOW TO BUY HIKING BOOTS. I found the Keans were best for me because they were wide in the toes, most of the other boots are tight. My belief, get a pair where you feet slightly slide, then wear a thin liner shock under a thicker sock.

Funny, when I didn’t care and brought cheap shoes from a ShowWorld everything seemed to fit, but when I attempted to get a quality boot, nothing seemed to be right. One store wouldn’t take a return on a $160 shoe that wound up to be the wrong size, which a saleswoman convinced me would be write. I wound up getting another pair based on looseness. SO if that saves you cash fine.

I will be going to Uluru, then Kakadu, the barerier reef, Tasmania, then Melbourne, and lastly SYdney.It will be six weeks.

My basic line in flying coach for 15 hours top Sydney, where I will be tagged and released by immigration and customs authorities: I went through eight hours of chemeo hooked up to an IV bag, I can handle traveling coach. Besides, without testicles, I’ll have more legroom.” Ah, to be hopeful that that could be bumped up to a business class!

Oh, I’ll also be traveling with my brother, so there will probably be some yelling too.
