That sounds like 10 hours on a plane, 17 hours in an airport, somewhere in western canada followed by many more hours on a plane. Like, I don’t often say this, but I don’t even think Civ could get me through that. That only kills like 12 of those hours.
Do you not sleep on planes? My solution when doing emergency non-rev was just to stay awake and purposely crash out, so I slept most of the flight. Nowdays, if I’m flying long distance, I hang out and chat with the crew, read, sleep, so on.
And, I mean, I’d have to talk to a few people, but I could get you a place to put your head down, no worries. It’s not like I’m a stranger to Melbourne barring Pax. Hell, I got another friend an offer for a crash hot hotel deal in Sydney, hungover to shit, on a bad mobile line, out the front of a back-alley Chinese restaurant in Melbourne, with little more than nicotine and practically free green tea keeping me on my feet. I’m not sure he actually used it - I don’t remember that he did, so probably not - but I damned well managed it.
