Ok Ive been thinking about this for some time. It probable came to mind more so after the meetups I attended last year.<br><br>
What would you all think about a cruise ( possibly Carribean? ) either next year or the following. As much fun as the meetup/races are, I thought maybe a cruise would be that much better. No worries about arranging meetups at expos, arranging pasta dinners and post race gatherings etc. Just a huge group of friends and family catching come rays, traveling to some exotic locales, and in general just having a blast.<br><br>
I figured if I threw it out there now it would give us plenty of time to decide a. if in fact there was interest, b. who would be going and c. were would be going. That and early booking is always good <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Let me hear what you all have to say.

I love cruises!! Depending on when it happens and home situation, I think I may be in. Have to talk to DH of course. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

There's a cruise package I recently read about that includes running races at several ports of call, along the way. Timing chips, bibs, the whole nine yards. Will try to dig up the info

Only 9-yard races? <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
But you'll always have the memories.<br><br>
Interesting idear, Frankie. I'd definitely be up for checking it out. I've thought about cruises before, but didn't want to go alone. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

Depending on time of year, etc. this sounds really great! I loved the one and only cruise I've been on, and knowing running people on board has got to be much more fun than making sure my parents aren't falling overboard!<br><br>
Keep me posted!

<a href="http://www.backroads.com/new/mediamentions/RunnersWorld2005.pdf" target="_blank">Here's</a> the RW thing I think you guys were talking about. Of course, I can't go on those dates, but. . .<br><br>
Thanks, <b>BigG</b>. Not having kids, I don't know what's worse on vacation, kids or parents, but it'll be pretty close in my family.<br><br>
ETA: Ok, I just looked at the years again, and it's 2006. Ooops. Still, with the academic calendar, I have tons of flexibility, except for about 8 months of the year.

Great idea, <b>Frankie</b>! I've never been on a cruise. I'm squeezing into my bikini as we speak to see just how much work I need to do. Can't write anymore...gotta exhale really hard...

But will they have knee-high, black socks to go with?<br><br><br><br>
Point of clarification: Would an ocean-bound vessel transporting runners to various races be called a Cruise Chip?<br><br><i><br>
(badum bum crash!)<br></i>

Were you planning on leaving the Mrs. at home? Notice in my original post I said <i>family</i>. Meaning wife, kids ( if you choose ) etc.
