Round one...

So... I made it to Airlie Beach today.  I was "supposed" to leave Cairns bright and early at about 0700... however, after last night's festivities I decided to hit snooze... for 2.5 hours.  Anywho... I made the 9 hour drive (as quoted by the tourist info center) in just under 7 hours having to only stop once to fill up my empty gas tank and empty my full bladder.  Upon arrival, I went to check in for my 3-day catamaran cruise only to find that the cruise was cancelled due to too few people signing up... doh!!  As luck would have it... the tour company took the liberty of squeezing me (and the few others that signed up) into an overpacked BYOB tour similar to what I originally signed up for.

... several rounds later...
... only NOT on a catamaran.  Oh well... I still get 3 days on a boat departing tomorrow... and I am fully stocked to survive the 3 day booze cruise.  That being said... I seriously doubt they'll have internet on the boat or at any of the beaches/reefs we stop at... soooo... I'll be out of communication for the next few days.  OK... I need to get back to my room and powder my nose for tonight's shenanigans... btw... just discovered that I forgot to pack my USB cable for my camera (my bad).  What does this mean you ask?  It means I most likely will NOT be able to post photos until I get back to Bangkok on 16 Jan (unless I stumble upon some kind soul with the same brand of camera as I who is willing to hook a brother up).  Stay tuned... I WILL have pics posted eventually... I promise!
