That's ok. She's probably in debt up to her eyeballs living in a 4000 sf McMansion filled to the gills with "stuff".

If it's any consolation, DW thinks the same about me. I know this because she frequently asks me, "What the Hell were you thinking?!!"...

Re: Vagabondage or NOT? Need advice.

How did you find and arrange the freighter? It sounds like an interesting way to travel.

I have taken the Amtrak from Chicago to Emeryville. Nice trip, but don't do coach, pay the extra for the sleeper.

Dh and I are exploring train travel, he hates to fly and I'm tired of driving. I don't know about freighter travel, is it female friendly?

ReWahoo's wife to Wahoo. "I can't get these stains off the sheets." I just knew that strawberrys and whipped cream would be a problem."

What were you thinking. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?

Jarhead, I think you just made up the distance you lost on USC and pulled ahead.
