All ready bought tickets for 49ers vs NY Giants @ Candlestick Park, NY Jets vs Miami Dolphins @ MetLife Stadium, LSU vs Mississippi @ Tiger Stadium (College football) and Michigan Wolverines vs NorthWestern @ Michigan Stadium (College football). Will sought out some NBA and NHL matches while we're there.

Disneyworld parks, universal studios, Push bikes around SF, Jazz bars in New Orleans, Hip-Hop tour through The Bronx, 'The Wire' tour through Baltimore (my favourite TV show), Magic Mountain, Knotts Berry Farm, Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam are amongst a heap of activities we have planned. Can't Wait!

Can also add...

NY Knicks vs Philadelphia 76ers @ MSG
NY Rangers vs Philadelphia Flyers @ MSG
Chicago Bulls vs Boston Celtics @ United Center
Chicago Bears vs Houston Texans @ Soldier Field
USC vs Notre Dame @ LA Coliseum

...to that list of sporting events

Both those matches at MSG are on the same day. The basketball is on at 1pm then they set the hockey rink up after the game for the ice hockey to start at 8pm. Heh!

you posted your passport for a cambodian visa? why bother, you can just get them on arrival. probably why they're not very busy

i rocked up at the laos/cambodian border and just paid $25 and filled out a form. mind you, that is in the middle of nowhere the the 'border' is a boom gate with a little shack next to it



that's looking back into laos.

Security is looking pretty lax there! Ah well, sorted in advance. I know the Laos one you can get on arrival.

Any other tips for Laos/Cambodia, Relaxo?

if you do thailand first, then enter laos from the north and get a slow boat down the mekong to luang pra bang. that was one of the highlights of my last SEA trip. unfortunately i didn't get to spend much time in laos so i only really did the boat trip, luang pra bang, vang vieng and don det. all super cool places. i've heard vientienne is pretty lame, i only passed through it.

cambodia... i came down from the north and went to siem reap for a bit. temples are fun and there's a good bar scene. then i got caught in the sihanoukville vortex for a while which was fun. if you go to sihanoukville i recommend an overnight trip (or a few nights if you have time) to rabbit island. however i was there in september and only 1 place was actually open. but it was magic.



that was the view from my $8 a night bungalow (2 beds, $4 each )

i did phnom penh for a bit, it's actually a pretty cool city.

Not at all. Maybe a little bit, but we use it often to instantly refer to how corrupt and crazy we all are as a collective
