Birthday trip... possible change [Jun. 28th, 2007|04:33 pm]

May be driving now. Not sure.

Part of the reasoning behind flying was to shorten the time I was away from Sharon. But if I fly to Perth, then drive to Eucla and back, with all the other bits of the trip factored in I'd be away for around 22 days, give or take a couple.

If I drove, I'd probably be away for about the same length of time. Now driving is more expensive. But I wouldn't have the car hire at the other end, and that negates most of the difference. And if I pick up a paying passenger in one or both directions, it immediately becomes cheaper.

If I dont go to Eucla, there's no issue. I fly from city to city and it's pretty affordable. But Eucla is my favourite place in the world, it's where I wanted to celebrate my 40th since before all this happened.

I could also take Tracy there, though I wouldn't scatter any of her remains without Shaz being present, of course.

It a place I couldn't wait to take my daughter.

Dates would change slightly if I drove, but not too much. And I could swing by Ballarat on the way through *grin*

Flying would be easier and cheaper, but then I don't get to travel the way I most enjoy.

Have raised the idea that I could drive and Shaz could meet me in Perth and we drive back together, but that depends on her holidays and such. Or I could do the trip with other friends, chosen carefully so I don't murder them and end up wearing their skins...

Think I'm going to have a snooze...

Is that userpic what I think it is?

Most of the pics of her turned out crap. And most people would find them distressing. I think this pic gets everything across without being too full-on.

Well, I hope so, anyway.

I found it slightly distressing but only in a good way, for reaffirming how lucky I am to hear Nicholas cry, even at 2 in the morning :)

It's not little Tracy's hand with presumably her Dad's finger?

birthday trip (picture of Tracy)

The picture kind of reminds me of one of those Anne Geddes pics, I think its beutiful thats what having children is about. Travelling around bits of Australia is an awesome way of celebrating ones birthday.
Big hugs and kisses to you and Sharon

Can I play Devil's Advocate?

If you drive, will you still be up to socialising when you arrive? (as I'm guessing was the point of the trip in the first place)

I make the assumption here that flying will be a less wearing form of travel than driving, even though the latter is the more enjoyable form for you?
