Default Today's poll: Favorite thing to do in between cruising?

Mine: Writing to you guys and seeing DT's excellent photos (the Easter stuff was cool too guys). I'm an outdoors kind of girl: biking, swimming, BBQing, canoeing, hiking (though not alot of hiking here in flat Iowa). Did you know that every summer Iowa holds "Ragbrai". It is a cycling trek from the western border (Missouri River) to the eastern border (Mississippi River) It takes one week to complete, and the route changes every year. I haven't ever done it yet. My hubby is going to go this year for the first time with the ol' college guys. link: www.ragbrai.org.

DiverKym - where in Iowa do you live? I lived in West Des Moines for a short time (1997/1998) and now live back in Lincoln, NE.

In my compulsive biking years - I biked RAGBRAI twice. RAGBRAI attracted a lot of Nebraskans because our bike ride here is a joke. Those were the days before my bike accident in 1994.

Glad to see you on the boards - at least another heartland person.

Van Meter. 20 miles west of Des Moines. Population 850. Quite a difference from Los Angeles! Theresa... aren't you a teacher too? I teach 6th grade LA and SS. Happy to know there are other landlocked souls out there. Very different from my California diving days... but better for my kids. Things change (smile).

Talking about cruising, thinking about the next cruise, reading cruise brochures, studying web sites and logging cruise prices (and/or airfare to the ports). Also, shopping for cruise clothes all year long. We went to Germany/Austria last year and it was so different from a cruise (of course, I expected that), that I craved a cruise even more. Bottom line....ADDICTED.

OK, in my spare time not on the web, I do restaurant audits (in preparation for cruising, of course!).

My very favorite is to check out this board ... and I do it more than once a day. (Some times check other boards, but this is my all time favorite.) Plus checking out ports at the library and online. Just been reviewing all the papers I have for my cruise April 9 and deciding which I want to take along ... I don't put them in a binder (my suitcase is usually overweight) but I always have a bunch organized by port.
