that's probably the ideal thing to do.. alter your sleep pattern before you go.
If you can't do that, I've done this going to Europe (on flights that arrive in the morning, Europe time). I stay up just about all night so that I'm exhausted on the plane, and can actually sleep on the plane. Then when the plane arrives, you've gotten some rest, and you are already shifted over in your schedule.
Whatever you do, avoid the temptation to take a nap in the afternoon when you arrive. That will just screw you up more. Stay up during the daytime at all costs. At worse, you feel bad only one day there. Of course, this is just my opinion.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
