Perth to Melbourne is about as far as San Jose to Chicago, and the cheapest fare I ever paid for that was about US$200. And that's about how much it cost to get from Melbourne to Perth. So, not bad.
This means that we'll have to stay the last weekend in October in Perth, which means that we'll probably go to the all night gay pride dance party here. (Wooooo.) It also rejiggers the schedule so that Dan can go to the VicBears campout thing over the first weekend in November. I'm not too sure that sounds like fun, but hey.
Should still be home by the 20th of November, United willing. Go us!
