[3]So, not trying to stir the pot but one cannot argue with first hand experience. I am sure there are some that can add to the above.
1. If so - then not unlike thementality you’re exhibiting, here.

2. If true; it would make for a community of cruisers.

3. One can always argue/debate; both the facts, and the conclusions one draws. Your conclusions, and attitude, certainly fit my definition of “stirring the pot”.

Notwithstanding, I think we should take note of those complaints, and endeavour to be good company, in foreign lands.

Thank you Gord. As I said, 20%, are salt of the earth. Quality over quantity!

I will remind those posting here we do take the be nice rule seriously. Debate topics, but name calling, mud slinging and commentary on other people, their character or their value will not be tolerated.

Thank you.
