Visiting the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington

No visit to Seattle, Washington would be complete without a trip up the iconic Space Needle. The Space Needle is the most recognized landmark in Seattle. It was built in Seattle Center for the 1962 World's Fair. A trip to the top takes only 41 seconds but the lines can take forever. If you don't mind getting up early in the Summer you can take advantage of the Early Up discounts and avoid the crowds.

The observation deck is 500ft. above the ground. From here, you can see the entire city. Well, that is if the clouds behave. Swarovski Telescopes are scattered around the deck and are free to use. Maps point out what you are looking at as well.

Don't forget to pose for your free photo. And don't worry, there are always a few other nuts doing the same.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
