Just checked in, now I'm excited!

Hi all, we have just checked into our flight for this Saturday, so less than 48 hours to go, Yoohoo!

Just want to say a very big thanks to so many helpful TA forum members for all their advise, info, support and friendship during this last 11 months of planning. Special thanks from day one go to Cathy & Gary, Phuket Richard,Tedkarma & Athena, followed by some great JBR's from Neegs, Tiff& Rod and more recently Firebucket and KGB4.Thanks to all the April crowd that have kept up some very long and entertaining posts, (there are just too many to list, but we are so lucky to be meeting most of you while we are there). Many thanks to CJ & Chez for their great recommendations for Kata and Ko Samui, Richard gets an extra thanks for never giving up on us with our never ending accommodation saga. But the biggest thanks I can give is to a very special lady (who unfortunately cannot post on here anymore), but who has heart of gold and gave us all the most entertaining travel stories to read about her adventures in Thailand last Xmas. I only hope she realises how much her words have helped so many people. Well done, Reet, you're a legend.

So, with less than 48 hours to go, I better get my butt into gear and get packing.

We're going to Thailand on Saturday, we're going to Thailand on Saturday, la la la la.

Dear Lee,

Have a great time - try to let us know how it's going over there, if Trevor lets you get on the TA during your holiday!!!

Can't wait to meet you at the bbq on the 20th, if not before.

I hope you have the most fantastic holiday, which you will of course. We will have another Adelaide dinner mid May and catch up with you both again. Even though you havent left yet, you have also given lots of good advise and help to other people.

Im looking forward to Sunday, then I can say we go next month haha.

Have fun

Hi Lee,

Hope you have a great start to your holiday....it will obviously get better once you meet the rest of the April TA crew but hey....!

I'm sure all the planning and accomodation issues will be completely forgotten after a few days,and a few cold Changs...

If you can, keep an eye on the forum and I'll try to keep the Gathering post on the 17th updated
