First-Time Senior Cruisers: How To Avoid Seasickness PDF Print E-mail


Guest Writer Paul G., Miami FL: When I retired, my wife and I decided to celebrate with a cruise. We flew from Miami to San Francisco, then boarded a big luxury ship bound for Alaska.

We sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge and into very choppy waters. Many first-time passengers were seasick, but we weren’t, because this old salt remembers Navy ways to fight it. Some suggestions may help on your first sailing.

1. See your doctor if you’ve been seasick before or have any problems with holding food down for other reasons. Ask for advice and medication to take with you that will prevent or ease seasickness.

Santa Monica CA: Two Major US Highways End Here PDF Print E-mail


Are you old enough to remember singer Bobby Troup’s song, “Route 66”, introduced 70 years ago in 1946? You can still get your kicks on that popular highway, but the lyrics are not quite correct. They say, “Well, it winds from Chicago to L.A.”

Actually, it does wind more than 2,400 miles from Chicago to L.A.. But it doesn’t end there. Route 66 continues another 15.7 miles to the Pacific Ocean beach at Santa Monica, California.

Another cross-country highway, Route I-10, takes a more southern route, and goes the 2,400 miles from Jacksonville, Florida, to Santa Monica.

Cross Country Trip: OK To Drive Instead Of Fly? PDF Print E-mail


Q: My spouse and I are considering driving round trip from San Francisco to visit relatives in Cleveland. If we fly, with parking, security and plane changes, it would take at least 14 hours each way, and cost for two is $3,000 or more round trip.

If we drive straight through, our cost for gas and food will be about $500 total. Taking turns at the wheel, we hope to make the drive in about 20 hours each way. When much younger, we did cross-country driving several times, but are now in our late 60s. Is it a good idea at our age?  MRMcL, San Francisco CA
