Sounds good to me. Almost like home. You forgot to talk about the spiders.
We got a bout six deadly ones here. Your mud is only thigh deep? Well I
guess I could get used to it, but here only the kiddies play in mud that
shallow. We have all three kinds of beer here. Don't get me started on the
bears and wolves. Of course our Griz are probably no comparison to your,
what did you call them, drop bears? Personally I look forward to getting
over there. As bad a picture as you try to paint at least you aren't
proposing we do this in North Dakota.

The only trouble is, while you lot are swanning around on the Barrier Reef,
and while John is wandering down the Diamantina doing QA on the pubs on his
way to sunning himself beside the waters of Lake Eyre, the conference will
actually happen in South West Tasmania. February is best, you can guarantee
you will get bright early Autumn sunlight, and snowed on, at least once a
day (when it's not raining), and the mud is usually no more than thigh deep.
Of course you have to walk/wade/climb with a 35kg pack (about 2.3 archive
boxes) for a couple of weeks to get there, accommodation and food is
whatever you can carry, and there are ZERO pubs (stay in Hobart for that).
And the wildlife is teriffic - at least one tiger snake in the middle of the
track every hundred metres or so, and possums which effortlessly break into
tents and packs to QA your food standards. Not to mention the Drop Bears.

Go there to see and experience some of the best wilderness scenery in the
World. Just the place for a conference.

As Grahame has said, Australia has some great places to visit, it just takes
a bit of effort to get to most of them.

See you all there.

ps - local slang, the reference to Lake Eyre is known as 'sandbagging'.

These views are mine alone. They may or may not be those of any previous or
present employers or clients. I don't know. If I'd asked and they'd agreed,
I would have signed it "Bloggs and Co and Glenn". Or whatever. But I
haven't, so I didn't.
