Re: Sign the petition to prosecute the Lake County Sheriff that killed the sailor

Let's see...

Horrific?

That would pretty much sum it up.

The best advice I got was drink heavily and take Valium.

Since I rarely drink and virtually have never taken Valium for 'nerves' you can imagine how much fun I was having when I became best buddies with one bartender who understood what a deconstructed Cosmo was and was happy to provide an endless supply. The Spouse kept the Valium in his pocket.

By the end of the trip I was tempted to offer a Valium to our 19 year old daughter... She scraped thru by the skin of her teeth.

The good news was the folks had no idea we were hatin life. They came away with a wonderland of great memories of all their offspring together and sharing great times for 2 weeks.

We had a day in Ketchikan that was magical. The kayak leader said it was the finest day she had seen in 3 years of leading kayak trips The sun was out and it was mild, little wind and we took a fast boat out to an anchored mother ship where we geared up and headed out on the water. Birds and sea life all around us. We were faster than her usual group of moribund cruise ship passengers and early on in the day she offered to take us on a longer route since we were making such good speed. We took her up on her offer and went some really amazing places.

After, we were lounging on the bow eating salmon and cream cheese, when the float plane flew in and landed, and taxied up to the boat. We climbed overboard and onto the floats and up into the cockpit.

The two hour flight over the Misty Fjords was amazing, since there was no mist, an unheard of event.

At the end of the day when we had to walk the plank back onto the Millennium I just about wept.

Hoonah was a good stop too. Interesting little burg. About the third time a local walked into the café/town hall/queuing area for all the towns tours I figured out that the reason they were all divesting themselves of an arsenal of weapons was because to go outside the town limits with out being armed was declaring open season on yourself.

We took a cool multi hull 36' powercat out into the Straight. What a sweet ride!

The baby whale, napping beneath the surface of the water amused us for 20 minutes with his slow regular rise up for a breath and settling down in his watery cradle with out waking up at all. When he did wake up, and dove down, only to surface in a full breech about 20' off the port side it exhilarating!

But the cruise ship? It was like Hotel California. You could check out any time you want, but you could never leave...

Did anyone send up a flare over at SailNet, or Anarchy?

Re: Sign the petition to prosecute the Lake County Sheriff that killed the sailor

i don't imagine you shared this on Cruise Critic? It does sound like when released from the floating Hilton, you had some good times. I have to ask, at dinner did other guests talk about all the other cruises they had been on? That would fit their mile long signatures on the Cruise Critic Forum.

I did Sailnet, still can't get the folks at Anarchy to approve my membership to their forum.

Re: Sign the petition to prosecute the Lake County Sheriff that killed the sailor

Actually I left a very frank review at CruiseCritics!

A Reluctant Cruiser... - Cruise Critic Message Boards

Off the "floating Hilton" was much better than on, but since the boat basically docked at multiple "Pier 39's" there were plenty of sucky moments ashore as well. It slays me how people travel on those hulks and talk about "all the places the have visited", when they really haven't stepped outside the global Disneyland version of the world. The simulacrum as it were.

We took NO Celebrity tours and did alot of our own trekking out to stuff that interested us.

Dinner was a table for 11, all family, so I missed out on the joys of the communal table with avid cruisers.

But I heard plenty from them standing in lines...

Re: Sign the petition to prosecute the Lake County Sheriff that killed the sailor

Sara,

I went to your Cruise Critic thread and posted. I think I outed you.

BTW, only 27 more signatures and the petition is done, thanks to all that took the time to read and sign it.

I need to be careful when a mod feels I'm a rabble rouser.
