Many lawyers advised me that upon taking the Bar, I should immediately take a trip. That advice was good advice.

I have returned from an Alaska cruise with the York Exploration Society, 18 folks inspired and organized by [livejournal.com profile] lawdogman and [livejournal.com profile] druzbasky to all go vacationing together. It was exactly the sort of vacation I needed to push my brain's reset button. A week of having to make no serious decisions, of endless food and drink, of picturesque scenery and good companionship.

I ate a lot. Seriously. Wow. I'm pretty sure I gained in poundage.

I drank a lot. Seriously. Back to back "$15 tastings" was the doom of me.

And it in general refreshed me for the painstaking task of begging for work in a crappy economy.

Pictures are here and you can see the red sweatshirts/T-shirts/tote bags with the Y.E.S. insignia that the Yorks thoughtfully provided to each and every one of us. We were like a traveling gang, wearin' our colors.

Awesome. How far north did you guys get? I see that you got to Juneau. Did you do Sitka and Ketchikan as well?

We hit Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Glacier Bay, then Victoria on the way back home :)

Very cool. Glad you had a "restful" time. Now you have an idea of where I grew up, though interior Alaska is very different from southeast Alaska. Certainly a lot less people than down here. :)
