Counting Down

Yep, we’re counting down the days, not just to the New Year, but to our very first cruise, departing Port Canaveral, FL on January 3rd for 7 days.  We’ve got lists of things to take with us and items set aside to pack.


Of course our car has acted up today.  It seems to have a bad CV joint on one of the axles, so first thing tomorrow I’m heading for the Honda dealer to see about getting it fixed ASAP.  We’re planning on driving the car from here in SC to Port Canaveral and back, so the axle needs replacing.  We have to leave on New Years Day to make the cruise.  While I’m at it, I’ll have the other one replaced,too.  If one CV joint is bad, the other can’t be too far behind.

I’m not complaining, the CV joints have lasted over 225,000 miles, so I certainly can say I got my monies worth out of them. 

Here’s hoping the Honda dealer can fit me in right away or we’ll have to come up with a Plan B fast… 

I’m open to suggestions for a Plan B.  ;c)

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.



  1. Can't say I have any suggestions other than rent a car - YIKES! But I do want to sing the praises of Honda. Great cars with long lives. Have a GREAT time on the cruise and try not to eat tooooooooooooo much. :-)

  2. You could always fly! That's what we'd probably do!

  3. All I can say is Port Canaveral terminals can be very slow and busy. So be sure to get there on time. A few weeks ago, we waited in traffic inside the terminal boundary for nearly two hours for our turn to unload:(

  4. Yeah, I would probably go with the "rent a car" option.

    We have been on two cruises and are booked on another one, our first Disney cruise, with my family next year. Have a great time!!

  5. Hmmm... Do you still have your scooters ! ;-))

    Have a WONDERFUL time !!!

  6. We have been on a few cruises and just loved them. Have too much fun. I have faith the dealers can fix you up right quick.
    No plan B needed.

  7. The idea of flying is practical but with all the nutcases out there today not comforting. Either way enjoy your well deserved trip . You have both working so hard that you earned it.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  8. Plan B: "cruise" on down in the Journey
    Plan C: thumbs out with some leg showing

  9. Honda should have the parts nearby so I'm guessing you probably won't need a plan B. That cruise sounds pretty nice.

  10. Wishing you lots of fun, fun, fun whatever happens!

  11. Too cool that you are going on a cruise. I'm sure it will all work out!

  12. I have to wonder why you've never taken a cruise. Too much like work? Afraid you'll want to take charge? Anyway, have fun.
