@Something Fishy's pics are about the trip as a whole while @Dan's are about the food?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

So much for being a loyal DDF member and follower....
I vote for keeping DDF material on DDF.  Maybe this will bring more life back to the forum.
As much as I'd love to convince myself otherwise, I don't consider this a DDF trip.

It happens to be that SF and Dan planned and organized it. But it isn't a "DDF" trip.


Yes it would be nice to get a lot more updates but I am not expecting a literal play by play as I'm sure they're very busy and have lots of other things on their mind besides entertaining the masses with minute by minute updates.

I'm sure when they get back or have time more legitimate updates will come along.

There's probably a smoking area on the ship, but who care?

Nope, just a very random question.

In your mind... I want to hear from a guy on the cruise. Guaranteed that someone of the 51 people in the boat do smoke. I feel for them if they canít..
