  1. You know that you and I agree. But if people are afraid then they should pay (a lot) more and feel safe.
  2. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I don't suppose they have a child-free ship, do they? LOL.

    A few years ago we visited the Holocaust Museum in DC. They had IMO a brilliant way to test the contents of your water bottle. They had you drink out of it!
  4. I had no desired response. I see people complain a lot but wonder if it causes them to change line/ships. Might be best for you to not assume you know what I want.
  5. No, it's not a barrier but it's quite a difference from the streets around it. But, again, what we consider totally fine may not be at all to others. But, hey, we take our lives in our hands by drinking tap water all over the world 🙂 Again, thanks for contributing good info here.
  6. I'm going to agree with you because what we're comfortable doing isn't the norm. Thanks for sharing.
  7. When we were living at Lake Tahoe, a few years ago a friend skied on Halloween and last year Squaw Valley was open til 4th of July.
  8. Absolutely. We returned to cruising (maybe) last year on Hurtigruten. 400 pax to Antarctica and 100 for the Norwegian coast. Those "gimmicks" you mention would be disqualifiers to us 🙂
  9. Having been with one company for almost 25 years he had become so specialized that finding something else would have been almost impossible. We came along too late for Roth IRAs but the regular one is a tidy sum.
  10. Oh, I totally understand that. But plans and reality sometimes don't jibe. Let's say he has a debilitating stroke as just one example.
  11. Totally agree. When we were working we always lived below our means. That didn't mean we didn't take vacations, eat meals out, etc. So when he got laid off and offered early retirement (and it was a round of layoffs) since we didn't have a mortgage or car payment(s) we could make it. He had six years before he could touch his 401(k) without penalty.
  12. There's a space between. How about this? https://www.oceaniacruises.com/baltic-cruises/stockholm-to-amsterdam-MNA200908/
  13. Absolutely. The fog has usually moved on. The first time i had abalone was at Tadich Grill. Also the first time I ate fresh spinach 🙂 https://tadichgrillsf.com
  14. I didn't dig into this site. http://www.bogong.com.au/info/content/trekking-poles
  15. I can understand that. For several years I rode the J-Church to the Powell St. station so I was in the area (but not really) every day. But it's better and will get even better. And for cruisers who will be there in day time it's going to be fine.
