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.
Unfortunately I need to +1 this

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 can’t..
There are smoking sections, though neither of us smoke.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

For these asking for my phone number, I don't have time to be busy with this now, sorry.

If someone is bored enough, they can feel free to screenshot my statuses and post them here ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

When I was a kid in Toronto our whole class wrote letters to Harper. I asked him to petition Bush to free Samet. Was the only kid to get back a response- handwritten from beginning to end. He really is a class act!

Stephen Harper. Wow!
Now, that's a real game changer! Had this been advertised in advance we would have seen even more interest in joining the cruise!
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Stephen Harper. Wow!
If someone still don't know who that is, it's the Canadian version of President Obama
