Hey everybody, I'm ready to set sail next Sunday.

I thought I'd share some of my Windjammer Pre-cruise rituals that had developed over the years. These activities usually come back to life about a month before my next sailing.

These are in no particular order:

1) log on to airline site and check booking every other day and review seating options.
2) Make jerk chicken.
3) start eating rice and beans (peas) at least weekly.
4) increase daily rum rations.
5) Juke box play list at local hang out becomes; Three Little Birds, Friends in Low Places, Orinoco Flow, Cheeseburger in Paradise, Amazing Grace.
6) visit travel size isle at grocery store on every trip. Never know what you forgot.
7) start adding ginger to as many meals as you can.
8) peanut butter with sesame crackers becomes a must have snack.
9) check flotilla site daily, (now The Sea Shanty)
10) work on perfect iPod play list for trip.
11) Tell friends and family every opportunity you have that you , "don't do Crusies, I do windjammers"

Love the list...it's very similar to mine! Just make sure you sprinkle everything with nutmeg, especially the egg nog.

Great list. The only addition is start a pile of clothes/things to take on trip.
