    My 2012 A splitter should have arrived to meet her ship at Yeosu, Korea this morning (Korean time). She's on the SS Cape Jacob - a MSC ship staying in the Far East, mostly Korea and Saipan.

    Before flying to Hawaii to catch MSC ship, DS has to go to Naval Station Norfolk for more medical testing. Patton wasn't enough I guess. :rolleyes:

    2012 A Split

    My daughter is in the Middle East on a RO-RO. Her first email said the boat & food were great and she has a private room and bath (a great reason to have a male sea partner - he likes his private room & bath also :thumb:). They were waiting out a sand storm in one port and getting ready to go into dry dock in a couple of days.

    tramp tanker , a handy-size tanker.
    In the Goldilocks-world of tankers, it's not too big (supertanker), nor too small... it's juusssttt right (the Handy-size is in the middle).

    From the pics I've seen... it's still HUUGGGEEEE.

    The 'tramp' part is no fixed delivery schedule. Not like a water version of our Postman's route (like the first sea period was). They go where the next CONTRACT takes them.

    So far, Japan->Korea->Guam.
    Cool !

    Last word, DS was on Waikiki Beach. Remind me of this next time he complains about KP.:rolleyes: He does his first underway replenishment of an aircraft carrier in the Pacific today. Pretty cool.

    She's still off the coast of Korea. She says the work is fun but exhausting. Oh, and the food is wonderful. She was gloating over what was served for Thanksgiving by comparison to what we were having at home, the ungrateful little so and so. :rolleyes:

    God speed and safe sailing to all in dangerous waters!

    Yeah, DS said he once had Kobe steak prepared by a former cook for the Greatful Dead. It really makes it hard to go back to Delano. :smile:

    This thread is so interesting. Thanks to everyone for posting where their loved ones are off to! The more my son looks into KP, the more he likes about it. But, I have to say, I will have to take up meditating or something to get myself through these cruises!

    Makes me wonder what went through my Mother's mind when my brother and I were in South East Asia.
