lol carla u can join business with me! that's what i've always wanted to do- set up camp for kids in america- i dont understand why ppl havent already! camp on the hols even for 6 weeks would be awesome

anyway lol cant believe this topic got so big all of a sudden. My appointements may 1st in sydney shay. so just gotta get the money order and stuff done next week. and hahaa nice job on the 90L bag...if my bag was any bigger i'd fall over- the bag i have now almost does that- i'm really short and the bag looks bigger than me lol

where are u guys keeping ur passport? i dont really care about money- i'll just stick it in my hand bag- i just wanna have my passport on me without losing it ( i have a habit of losing a lot of things! haha)

Bec, at the CCUSA office before your interview next Thursday, keep an eye out for a shorty with dreadlocks and say Gday. Tell her I said hi too. Thats Courtney, shes a lovely lovely girl :-)

Heh, I love how offtopic this has gone! Just to add to it, I saw TSA locks at Officeworks the other day (of all places!) and I think they were 2 or 3 for $15 Smile

perhaps i should go to officewords. strandbags have 2 for $17.95 i think? and woolworthes have 'master key' REALLY cheap- but i dont know if master keys work the same way. anyways kristina , just remembered wat u asked me lol, i need so many locks because i have about 7 different openings on my backpack and they reccommended i get them all locked, which i think is stupid , but wateva haha.

short (so my height lol) dreads...courtney- got it lol i'll remember. lol i'll say hi for u carla =)

ohhh and lol so where abouts is everyone keeping their passport on them? i'd like to have mine on me without looking like a tourist- sound liek a possible idea? lol although you guys, i think the backpack MIGHT just give it away Wink lol

i'm just thinking 4 like wen we go on rides and stuff i'd wanna have it on me- i'm really paranoid about leaving it in a bag while i'm not with it lol cos i'd be in so much trouble if i lost it. so maybe keep it in my bag locked up during the day and if i go on a ride then i'd have to wear like a money belt thing

I brought my backpack today! it's backpack on wheels AND a duffle bag and is 60 litres. which i thought was good but it looks so tiny haha i'll have to roll all my stuff up. It cost $188 (and that was with a discount!) plus name tags. the tsa locks cost $11 bucks each there and i needed like 10 of htem lol so i was like i'll look around, AND THERE WAS NONE! kmart- none, target- none, big w- none, other bag stores- none, freaking sunshine coast has nada lol. soooo might have to fork out the money...kinda sucks. are u guys getting a hide-away money belt to put passport and stuff in?

x

as soon as you open your mouth youll stick out like dogs balls lol well maybe not quite like that but you get the drift...

when you walk down the left hand side of the walkways of bike paths and people tell you to walk on the right simply yell "its okay im australian" ahhhh the memories lol

Mine didn't know what the MRV thing was either, Becca! She had to look it up on the computer and then she was like, "Ohhhh, one of them!" Then I was nervous that it wasn't going to be the right thing pale but it was, phew!

Ok it's not a machine readable passport...it's a machine readable visa...I'm pretty sure that is what the V stands for in MRV, but all it is pretty much is a receipt that says you paid it to the US Consulate and hopw much.

Other than that it's easy peasy lol.
