    Not many pictures of you and players, a lot with your wife.

    The cruise has been booked for at least a month plus now.

    ^^^ Most of the time I was holding the camera or drinking. Besides, I love taking pics of my wife and she just had to have 50 pictures with everyone.

    Coolest thing on the cruise, Hank and the boys did a little FB 101 for some of the less knowledgeable fans, and I got to run the FB position in his offense demo. I was getting into it, I almost blew some kid up off the back of the ship.

    BTW Lightning, DO NOT MISS THE TRIP TO PAPAS AND BEER WITH KASSIM AND THE BOYS!!!! We got RUINED all on the Chargers dollars, NICE!!! Kassim is like the beer ambassador of the team, he wasbuying drinks for everyone. In my picture w/ him at the top of this page, he was buying drinks for me and the 2 other dudes for like an hour as we talked @ the bar. I can't say enough good things about Kassim.

    Just wanted to say thanks for the response and the pics. Mrs. Lightning is REALLY looking forward to the trip now!

    I am thinking on wearing my gameday outfit for at least one of the days....what is the thought on something like that? I was picked for one of the pictures in the '06' yearbook so I know that the team must think that my persona is cool enough to represent.

    I heard that the trip to Papas and Beer was like a three hour drive , is that true? We weren't thinking on doing that one if so but if that is the "team" trip then we would probably go for sure.

    Half the ship will be wearing Bolts gear, it's like a gameday in SD.

    Papas and Beer is a 5 minute cab ride from the terminal in Ensenada. Just get off the boat at port and find any cabby you can find. It will probably cost you all of 3-5 dollars each way.

    Oh and don't let me forget to say that I've been to Pappas and Beers and have a really nice shirt from that place... Will have to bring it with me on the cruise, next year... ;) :icon_mrgreen:

    I was trying to recruit everyone for this one, but with changing jobs at the beginning of the year, a vacation 3 months into the new job simply isn't possible. My wife was going to book last november then I got my job offer and so we put it on hold until we found out if I was gonna be changing or not. Fair tradeoff if you ask me, I'm very happy with the new gig, but saddened because i know how much fun I'm gonna be missing out on.

    If we get even 2 or 3 people interested I am totally for it. It would be sooooo much fun to be on a cruise with all these folks here for 3 days.
