Tomorrow we leave to begin our 13th annual Legacy Genealogy Cruise, this year to beautiful Alaska. We will depart from Seward and visit Hubbard Glacier, Juneau, Skagway, Icy Strait Point, Ketchikan, and Vancouver, British Columbia. We will sail on Royal Caribbean's Radiance of the Seas. We've also got lots of Legacy classes planned and time for one-on-one and small group sessions.
Last time we sailed through Alaska (2006) I did so without my wife. She gave birth to our 3rd child a few days before we left. Some timing, eh? Before we were even engaged, we decided that a trip like this to Alaska would be something we wanted to do together some day, and nineteen years later that day is finally here!
I'm looking forward to most of the excursions we have booked. But since on prior cruises we've already bicycled down mountains (Norway), zip-lined through rain forests (Costa Rica), paddled down rivers (Jamaica), and snorkeled in the ocean (Hawaii), we, or should I say, my wife decided that we would give rappelling a try. Normally, this would be the last thing on earth that I would ever try as my fear of heights is incredible. Yet I agreed. I may, or may not get off the ship that day.
I'll let you know all about it, either here on our blog, or over on our Facebook page (or both). If you see lots of great articles and pictures, and then they all of a sudden stop on the day of our rappelling trip, then you'll know that the first part of my new genealogy t-shirt, "Life is short..." may have come true. I may even try out the new Facebook Live broadcasting tool.

You can also follow the ship online. Always know where the Radiance of the Seas is here.
While we won't have our weekly webinars while we're gone, I have unlocked the entire "Watch Geoff Live" series for the duration of our trip. Look for them here.
As has become tradition, I've also issued a Bon Voyage 10% off-anything-in-the-store coupon. Here's the code:
Our sincere thanks go out to our entire technical support and sales staff who will continue to provide sales and support services while we are away. Thanks Dave, Pegi, Ron, Michele, Sarah, Bryan, Marian, Jairmie, John, Debbie and Leonard for keeping us afloat!
We'll either see you here or on the ship!
