    I'm planning on going, I'm trying to put something togeather if I have time, to present or make a poster. The reason I'm asking is to save money I was seeing if anyone wanted to share a room and car.

    More details on the conference please

    I'm in Melbourne and as Tasmania is just a short boat ride across some rough sea, I might go to have a sticky beak! I could be driver for several people (if someone else can navigate!). The last time I went to Tasmania I was 10, which was quite a while ago...

    Have you heard if you're actually talking? I haven't and when I checked the website yesterday it said it would take a few more days! Hmmmm maybe I'l scoot over and have another wee look! I'm hoping to be talking Nototodarus (we need a smilie for that!). Also attending the Southern Ocean cephs workshop:grin: should be interesting!

    Well it'll be great to meet the new people (Jean and co.) and see the old people (Steve, et al), not that I mean you're old...ummm....yeah.

    Fun though anyways! Nice break from school, one heck of a flight though (Halifax to Hobart, thats 1...2...3...4....x... hours...). Definitely looking forward to it though if all things work out. See you there!

    Cheers!

    Will do although at this stage most of mine are drawings and graphs.

    Main_board Halifax to Hobart Wow.....that's some distance! Christchurch to Melbourne is about 3 hours then a wee wait of about 2-3 hours before the flight to Hobart.

    Was going to leave from Dunedin but that was going to be nearly $500 more........can't quite figure out why, so have a four hour bus trip to Christchurch first, still 'tis extra time to memorise my talk and to get stressed out!!!!:lol:
