I try not to think about it so much, because the countdown is still quite large. But the next one will be a big one, 14 nights LA to HI and back. It will be the first time I've ever seen the Pacific. And it will be the first time I've flown to a cruise port--I usually drive.
But it will be big for another reason since I will also fulfill another ambition. I'll be taking with me the most unusual item I've ever taken on a ship--a telegraph key. I've already been in touch with the folks at Big Mo in Pearl Harbor, and I will be allowed to exercise my hamly art in the radio room of BB-63. The details won't be finalized until much closer to my sailing date.
I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!
