I can almost guarentee that the storm track is wrong. With Pamda due to hit the beaches of N. Carolina next week, that storm is bound to head straight toward her and not south of Cuba. She is a hurricane magnet. Destruction follows in her wake. Don't believe me? Just ask MSNBC's reporters. They call her on a regular basis to find out where she is going. They know a storm can't be far behind!

OK. So maybe I'm exagerating. But not much.

Queeg does exaggerate. However, during late August of every year I do tend to get e-mail and phone calls from news reporters about my whereabouts.

I have even considered selling my travel itineraries to the worried so they know where NOT to go.

Queeg will verify that we travel somewhere, somehow, every August -- ocean or land cruise. I don't think we've missed attracting one in the past fifteen years.

I'm just waiting for our friends in NC to call and say, "Don't you DARE come!"

The best site to track Chantal is any one not located on a ship headed for the western Caribbean. I understand that the lines have already implemented their alternate routes (most of them headed for the eastern ports), and I'm soooo glad that I don't book at this time of year. Imagine what St. Thomas will be like with a dozen ships in port, all those tenders going back and forth, every shore excursion sold out, lines snaking outside the jewelry stores, passengers consuming their alcoholic beverage purchases before returning to the ships - isn't the idea of a cruise to avoid stressing out??? Now those people know why they got the bargains they did!
