Livia Thanks thesnort. Always looking for recommendations on people to interview (2 years or more out of home country whether their cruise is ongoing or finished), question recs and just general recs.

For example, I had a bunch of people asking for discussion opps but now that I posted them they aren't, shall we say, "lively". I'm thinking to give them one more cycle (I open discussion every 5th interview) and then kill that idea for now.

thesnort Excellent website! and nice "bank of questions". I'm reading "Bumfuzzle" right now and enjoying the surprising answers.
BTW, nice choice in boats you have there yourself.

Livia Thanks utchuckd - I've just opened a discussion post for readers to suggest follow up questions to the first 10 interviews and next week is an interview with Evans & Beth aboard Hawk.

utchuckd Still enjoying the interviews!

I really liked the answer to the trade goods question. I've never head of trade goods before, sounds interesting.

Thanks.

If someone flew home for 2 weeks for a family emergency or holidays, that still seems to be "cruising outside of home country for 2 years" to me. I definitely don't want to be legalistic about it...it's just a guideline for me.

@ johnnyandjebus - I will contact him this week. Thanks!
@ wanderingstar - Thanks!

I created a "how you can help" page at the top bar today and tomorrow the next interview goes live.

Close to the mark. I have plenty to do but as I told the interviewer at Three Sheets NW, I originally created the site while failing to sleep because my to do list was too long!

Still great idea, helps with the dreaming.

PS - today's interview is up!
Been out of my "home" country long enough I don't know what is "home" these days! Unfortunately, not on a boat...
