Dave - In just a few short hours you will be departing on a whole new, most grand adventure on the Equinox!! WE are all counting on you to do one heck of a job of high quality cruise journalism to feed us the real experience thru your eyes! Make sure you go to Southampton for the Celebrity Equinox and not to Stonehenge to celebrate the equinox (As I have cautioned you earlier) So Check your tickets, and pack your passport with them and ...hurry back with the cruise tale!!! Go safely and return in great spirits ... and may the winds and the seas be gentle!!

Bon Voyage Dave,

Thanks Billy. I fly out of Huntsville on Monday afternoon and arrive at Gatwick on Tuesday morning. We have the afternoon off and then a press supper in London that evening. The following morning (July 29) we board buses and head to Southampton for the naming ceremony and 2-night preview cruise. We leave the ship on July 31, with a tour of Stonehenge and other sites as we head back to London for a final hotel night right in the middle of Westminster. I then fly home at noon on August 1. That will be the killer...leaving Heathrow at noon and arriving at Dulles at 3pm local time. Then I still have the flight home to HSV. I never had problems with jet lag during my military years but then I was a youngster back then.

We're all rooting for you, Dave, we know you can do it! I'll wish you a Bon Voyage, now, as well as a safe flight

I sent you an article with things to do on long flights. Be sure to pack your survival kit.

Be sure to pack your survival kit.
Let's review CF's survival kit list: bottle of vodka, duct tape, doctor's reflex hammer, tootsie roll pops, scripto pens, and a safety pin.

Sounds like a good kit, I might add noise cancelling headphones, though. Then again, you will have duct tape

I have a noise-canceling headset. I finally get the chance to use it on an airplane.

Dave, as Penny said we are rooting for you!

Best wishes for safe flights and a wonderful experience on the Equinox! Bon Voyage!

Have a great trip, Dave. Say hi from me to Bill, and to Candace, if you see them.
