  •  Yes, freighters (6+ / 0-)

    are a practical and low-cost solution for most of us.  Especially if you live in the middle of the country, where I guess you can still drive, take a train or a bus to one of the coasts.  Heck, the whole journey probably wouldn't take you more than a couple of weeks.

    •  I had a Honda Civic named Reepicheep -- it was the (4+ / 0-)

      2nd model of the Civic, 1975?, a notch up from the original ones but still very small (so you can guess why I called it that). Reepicheep Silverbee (it was silver). It was one of the early front wheel drive imports and I remember steering it through a snow storm, driving it like a jeep, to pick up various family members who were stranded by the snow. Nostalgia.

      While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.

      taking pax are few and far between these days.  And their crews & pax manifests & passports are subject to the same scrutiny as pax cruise ships.

      Many people here seem to need to update their decades old knowledge of marine transportation & issues.

      Just earlier this summer, a cruise ship which left from Boston with a certain crew member aboard (OKed by the US), had that crew member 'detained' when the ship reached a Nova Scotia port.  He had a record of sexual assault & child porno on his computer.  

      Thank you Canada for getting him off a ship where he could attack children & pre-teens!

        •  Maybe so (0+ / 0-)

          but that's what the snark word is for.

          Others were misinformed,  such as saying there were no pax ships between the West Coast & Hawaii.  So how is one to know??
