superamit This morning we woke to see the ship had stopped near the volcanos of Petropavlovsk, Russia.

First land we've seen in 10 days.

If Russian immigration approves us, we hope to take lifeboats to land in a few hours.

superamit Last week I boarded a repositioning cruise ship bound for Tokyo.

Together with 10 friends, we've formed our own gang (identified by our green bandanas) to spread cruise spirit across the ship.

We've published our newsletter, set up an intra-ship chat server, and converted fellow passengers and staff alike into fans.
In what has become a nightly tradition, each evening we march through the formal dining room to surprise one of our favorite fellow shipmates by honoring their exemplary cruise spirit with the Green Gang Golden Chalice award.

People get pretty excited when they win.
BACKGROUND... We're 10 friends on a half-full cruise ship headed from Vancouver to Tokyo via Russia. We will spend 15 days on this voyage (11 in the Pacific Ocean with no land in sight) as the cruise line moves the vessel from one market to another.

Along the way, we'll work, play games, and get to know and learn from each other.

superamit Home of John D. Rockefeller.

Rockefeller was the world's first billionaire and when his wealth is adjusted for inflation, the wealthiest person in history.

He was a ruthless competitor and often reviled but also unequalled in efficiency, cleverness, and work ethic.

He's also the father of modern philanthropy. Instead of just writing checks, he worked tirelessly after his 'retirement' to make sure his money helped the most people possible, funding education and medical research to extents previously inconceivable.

Fun fact about the house: it sits on the Hudson River, and his son bought all the land on the opposite bank (The Palisades) as land preserve to keep the house's view free of obstruction.
