i really want to go. it's three of my favorite things combined (cruising, ALASKA, and knitting). but right now i have absolutely no money as i'm still looking for a job. even if a do get a job that would allow me to afford it, i have to save up any possible time off to go visit my brother on okinawa in about a year and a half. he's in tech school for the air force right now and then he's getting posted to okinawa.

so long story short, i'm not going. but i definitely will be sometime in the future. it really would be a dream come true to actually get to knit in my favorite place on the planet. *sigh* :rollseyes:

I'm jealous of both of you! I'd love to go to Alaska AND Okinawa! My dad was stationed in Okinawa when he was in the AF and I was born there.

We (dh & me) are going! We just got our confirmation and our cabin assignment. We are so excited since this will be our first vacation without our kiddos. Wow a whole week just the 2 of us and even more fun for me because I get to knit without interruption.

Oh that's too bad but a really good reason. Family definitely comes first.

I had read somewhere that they are already starting the plans for Sea Socks '09.
