I just confirmed my flights for the Unholy Trinity Down Under. I tried to arrange an overnight stop in Los Angeles, but that would have cost another $800.00. So when I board Quantas in DFW, I won’t get off that plane until two days later, once I’m on the other side of the world. That will put me in Auckland New Zealand on March 9th. I intend to stay there a couple days before I head to Australia. I’m speaking in Sydney on March 14th, in Brisbane on March 18th, Melbourne on March 21st, and Perth on March 23rd. There are more details of course, but we’ll announce those later on.
After that, I’ll be in Hawaii March 29th and 30th, because my daughter is stationed at the Naval base there. Then I will take another direct flight from there all the way back to DFW. I would have liked to stop off in San Francisco for a while on the way back, but once again, it would have driven the costs beyond my allowance.
This trip is being jointly-funded by the Atheist Foundation of Australia and the Humanist Society of Western Australia. They let me arrange my own flights, but I have to keep it under budget.
I was only on a dozen planes in 2014. This one trip alone would have been at least that many, if I could have broken up the trip a bit. Who wants to sit on an airplane for 24 hours or more in one shot? Especially when we’re flying WITH the rotation of the earth, because that takes even longer.
BTW, would any of you flat earth believers like to explain why it is that flying west to east is so much faster than flying east to west? The last time I made this trip, Tuesday April 11th 2012 didn’t exist in my life. I jumped straight from the 10th to the 12th. But the flight back had me on a 48 hour Monday. I’d love to hear how the flat-earthers explain that. They’re still out there, ya know. They’re still posting on YouTube.
