1.  Pool cover, yes or no?  (if you don't have a pool, answer as if you did).

2.  What color is your front door?

3.  Do you like to shop at thrift stores?

4.  How many purses do you own and do any of them violate trademark laws?

5.  Your next vacation: Cruise or Disney?  (Death is not an option)

"Roll, my husband's boss recently took a trip to Norway and I was panting and drooling over the photos. Amazing" ----------- Yep! I was 6 when I went there, and I still remember how beautiful it was. People usually go for skiing, but it is also gorgeous to hike there in the summer.

"For much of Alaska, your only choice is boat or flyover plane. There are huge chunks of Alaska where "you can't get there from here" by road. Same in the Northwest territories of Canada." ------------ Norway as well. There is a boat that goes all the way up the coast, stopping at each town and fjord. Like an ocean greyhound bus, basically. It must be a beautiful trip as well.

"I had a trip on Alaska's inside passage all planned out, including using the mail boats." --------- That sounds so cool, although I doubt my dh would be interested in that kind of travel. One cruise I would consider doing is the one on the Baltic that goes to Petersburg. I would love to go there again, and it must be beautiful coming to the city by sea.

Your best bet is to take the cruise up, do things in the interior and then leave by plane.  Or vise versa, of course. And are you talking about the state ferries?

For much of Alaska, your only choice is boat or flyover plane.   There are huge chunks of Alaska where "you can't get there from here" by road.   Same in the Northwest territories of Canada.  I'd love to see places in Nunavit, the NW Territory, and the Yukon, as well as getting to Alaska.  DH is not so interested.   I'm not sure how I am going to make it happen, but I will.....

I had a trip on Alaska's inside passage all planned out, including using the mail boats.  You can buy a pass and get on and off them at will, or book a room for a night if you are wanting to stay on board, and you eat with the crew.  I thought it was going to be a great adventure for all of us, but DH decided he didn't want to go to Alaska that year.  The kids and I were horribly disappointed, but that was that.  We went somewhere else instead.  I still want to do my Alaska trip.
