Yes... not been hearing from you, Ange... including my e-mail reply.

48 days around South America? You sure the candle mines will still be there when you get back? Anyways... I have checked... Carnival Splendor goes through that route from Feb to March.

Don't worry Joe... I didn't forget you... consider yourself lucky, most didn't even get an initial email yet... but I'll get there :P

Working towards operation have less jobs...so if it plays, I should have Jan-Mar free most years... we'll see how it goes

Wow... Iceland!! How exciting!! Make sure you post pictures... at least on FB. Otherwise, send them to me and I will help you post!

And please... it's not a lot of money for a 48-day cruise. Perhaps from now... one less high end cappuccino per day will do.

Actually... it is three separate cruises joint together (17+13+18) so I am not sure if they give extra discounts if we book three cruises in a roll!!

hey eveeryone, loving the new position but the drive is taking a toll. I drive about three hours a day so we are looking for a place closer for us to bring the notor home so I dont have to drive so much!

Later, I will also dream about the 48 day cruise! lol

Bringing your home to work? Wow.. you must really like the job!!

Yes... a 48-day cruise does seem like a lot. But you don't have to take all 3 cruises. You can always fly to or from one of the cruise start/end ports, and take just 1 or 2 cruises.

I rarely get to so South America so if I do go... I want to do a comprehensive one.

I think it is a great way to visit South America without having to worry about transport and accommodation especially in places where language is an issue.

Popping by to say HELLO!
Super busy with work - the faster I go, the behinder I get....

Joe, South America sounds like an amazing trip - but there is no way I can swing 48 consecutive days away from work -unless i retire
but i can consider one leg of the trip. I will give it some thought

hope all is well with everyone. Miss y'all!

Hello mdm! Finally get to see you back here!

We are all waiting for Nance's Iceland adventure report! Haha...

Yes... 48 days is a long time even for me as well... but with proper planning, I bet I can pull it off.

But ya... you could easily take the 170day cruise starting from Long Beach which will be convenient for you and one less air ticket to buy.

Hey Gang
Wanted to drop in and say hello, hope you havent forgotten about me. Well retirement didnt last too long. My old employer called....you can figure. Wanted to know if I was interested in coming back for a little or as much as I want to work. So I am working 2 days a week. Kinda tired of sitting on my butt.
Been on the board for our Dec 16th on the Breeze. What a snooze fest. Not that anything can compare to this group, but I was hoping for a little more. 105 days out and we are on page 5. We use to do that much in one morning
Miss you guys
Tom

Hey Tom...nice to hear from you. Glad that you are back to doing the thing you love. But take it easy ya... find more hobbies and more cruises!! South America anyone??

As for me... well... after kissing a few "frogs", I finally found a gal that I am now seeing on a regularly basis. She is divorced and a mother of 2 (16 & 12). Never thought I would be receptive to that, but here I am.

At least I am smiling a lot more these days... and definitely happy about that.

Gwyn... wanted to talk to you about your own experience... but guess our schedule just did not sync up. Well... I will see where this goes.

Okay Joe, It didnt make any difference to me but Karen wanted particulars. How long have you been seeing this girl/lady and how did you meet? etc.

South America sounds amazing. Having the time to go is not a problem but paying for it is a whole different story. When were you looking at going
