  1. If you want to see how your state is doing at getting doses they’ve received into arms. New Mexico is number one! https://www.beckershospitalreview.com/public-health/states-ranked-by-percentage-of-covid-19-vaccines-administered.html
  2. In Oklahoma I just became eligible this week, and I was able to find two locations with appointments available within minutes on my first attempt. The catch was that I had to drive seventy-five miles, which I did gladly. The clinic was incredibly busy, but run pretty effectively in a vacant former anchor department store in a mall. Took me two hours to get in and out. there were a lot of people around, and even though people were trying to distance, my suggestion is wearing a KN-95 mask if you have one, or double masking if you don’t. If you’re willing to drive, be sure to extend t
  3. Permit me to put on my custom-made Captain Obvious hat and ask, are you sure you don’t have old emails lurking in gmail or similar that can help your case?
  4. I get my first dose tomorrow! Hoping for progress on getting back to travel!
  5. Tried again unsuccessfully to load pics here. I was able to add them under “favorite cruise memories” in the gallery. Five pictures by me. To be clear, this wasn’t an HAL Tour, so your tour may be different. There is a wet season and dry season that will greatly affect the water flow.
  6. I was on a land tour about five years ago. Depending on options, you get pretty wet. I’ll post a few pics. Notice how soaked I am in the shot after we went near the base of the falls, the amount of water droplets on my camera lens in another, and how wet people are in a later boat trip to the base of a cascade which your excursion may not include. On the other hand the views are spectacular! You have to walk over a fair amount of boardwalks with stairs, though it isn’t an athletic day. I’m sure a lot of this depends on exactly what options your tour operators choose. EDIT: I thought I knew how
  7. I had an FCC from a cancelled Asia (!) cruise last March, and had been planning to use it in a 2022 Alaska cruise when those were announced, preferably Seattle to Seattle to avoid international flights. But the prices on those are so high, I decided to go for a cruise in Australia. Similar price for a longer cruise. My feeling is that when the issues of cruising in the age of Covid are solved in one place, they will be solved everywhere, so Australia will probably open up when Canada/Alaska does. I am taking a risk but I think it’s a good one. And I will get an even more memorable cruise out o
  8. I’m excited about the ship, I just signed up today for the eleven day cruise from Perth to Sydney this December. A little of a gamble, but I am looking forward to it! 🙂
  9. Congrats to those who endured the Westerdam, this was meaningful to me because I actually considered going on that cruise! I ended up booked for a cruise leaving Shanghai I believe on February 29th. Of course I didn’t go and the only drama I had was waiting for HAL to cancel....And now figuring out what to do with my credit which expires if not used in a couple of days!
  10. Most City/county health departments in major cities have an immunization group. Mine will research foreign travel and arrange for the appropriate shots based on your destination. Start on it well before your trip. Having said that, I’m pretty sure I didn’t get any immunizations before my Egypt trip, though that was over twenty years ago.
