You can pick up a drunken local and give him a ride home, or a flat tire and no tire shop for 300 miles, that's popular. Or pay $3 for a litre of gas, everybody buys that one. Mosquito repellant is a favorite with tourists lmao.gif

I have a cousin that was a bush pilot for years, flew up in the Yukon and Northwest Territories. Always had great stories and 1-summer flew around up there. Strange yes but liked it. Lots of beer...Always lots of beer. And yes the black flies and mosquitoes are brutal. Mosquitoes bigger than in the Louisiana swamps.

I saved my pennies and went with a girlfriend first to Calgary, Alberta, then a train ride through the Rockies to Vancouver, B.C., then boarded a small cruise ship from the Princess line up through the Alaskan Panhandle to many ports, excurisions; one to Mendenhal Glacier, to our ultimate destination of Juneau. It was a wonderful experience and now I want to share another cruising experience with my hubby, but he has reservations about tour companies putting passenger safety first.

So, for the last three decades I've been trying to convince my hubby to go on a cruise. When I almost had him convinced, this last cruise ship fiasco was the last straw for him.

He has informed me that no way in hell will he ever set foot on a cruise ship, nor any type of touring boat or tour bus. (I already gave up ever going on a hovercraft nighttime swamp tour with him).

You know, I'm beginning to see his point after this cruising nightmare; it just seems to be one problem after another with these cruise ships. I think I'll do some research on Holland America lines, the smaller cruise ships, to see their track record, then, maybe, I'll work on him again. chuckle.gif

Quote:Rob Mowlam told his father the ship's crew had started giving free alcohol to passengers.

"He was concerned about what that was going to lead to when people start drinking too much," Mowlam said.

The way i feel about cruising on ships is i dont ever want to become shark bait while drowning because of some idiots stupid mistake and so i dont go sailing out upon the miles deep oceans and i dont ever want to crash upon a wind swept snow covered sub zero mountain while dressed in summer clothes because of some idiots stupid mistake and so i dont fly in any airplanes either and a far as flying goes,the airplane i fly in will crash,i just feel thats so true,my inner voice constantly warns me about that and so i'll never do it and im no jetsetter anyways and i wouldnt want to become one and i understand how driving a car is more dangerous and deadly,but most people survive most car accidents and most people dont survive most airplane crashes and i hate cars and dont really want one,but i dont live in a city and so i'm forced to drive one, but theres no doubt about it,i was born within the wrong place in time,i like my feet on the ground...

Well I wouldn't go on a cruise for vacation either. You can only leave this country by plane or ferry though, unless you go to Russia. Or then drive up North until you can cross over to Sweden or Norway by road. But that is one helluva detour.

Oh I'd say around -30C (-22F) without windchill. Better to stay indoors at that point though.

It's fascinating country, absolutely beautiful. Remote lonely barren but full of life. It's like the troubles of the world, the stress of life doesn't exist.

WTF kind of insult was that? wtf2.gif

You obviously have no clue what a long-term loving relationship is, so I will forgive you this once because you know not what is what.

Countries like finland are like heaven and countries like syria are like hell,but they both exist at the same time on the same planet and both were created by humans, except for the natural elements,that most materialistic humans are at war with...

Where i live here in new england is like an island paradise sheltered within a raging stormy ocean...
