thanks for all your helpful/insightful comments. The update is that he called Tuesday night (2 days after he got back). Left a message at 7:45 that he'll only be available to talk till 8:30. Otherwise I can call him back during the week. So, per protocol I did not call him and will tonight.
The question is: letting him know when I'm available. To be honest there's an event every day of the week/weekend that I could go to, but I'd like to see him without seeming like I'm always available. I have been available 95% of the time so far. So, If you were me (and today is Tuesday) which day(s) of the week would you be available. Mind you, we've never had a Fri/Sat/Sun date yet.
Should I suggest a date that would last from afternoon-evening instead of just one night?
And how to keep it a little less intimate than last time. I think I will have a short conversation about wanting more emotional closeness before things go further physically.
Thanks for reading.

Never make yourself too available to a man you are dating. NEVER.
Secondly, the dates should be convenient for you, so whenever you want to go out, give him like two dates and let him pick one.
You have the control to be touchy feely with him when you are ready but let him know your intentions.
Give him a deadline to reply and get back to you about a date just like he gives you deadlines about when he is available to talk.
Keep the playing field even at all times. If you give someone an inch, sometimes, they will take enuf to hang themselves. It's all in the art of courting.
