About the FE exchange - we are going to give to all, so however it is broken up is fine by us. This whole process sounds like it is getting more confusing than is necessary. I guess the organizer needs to clarify - my understanding is that it is ONE gift given (to each cabin or person - that is up to the giver) for the cruise.

Cayla
ive no idea were the confusion is coming from.

my understanding of the Rules of fish extender is there is NO rules, thats what keeps it fun. Trying to set rules takes the fun out of it. if a person is in one group and chooses to give multiple gifts over the cruise to people in there group thats there decision, if a person decides to give 1 gift per stateroom, again their choice, lets keep the fun in this!!!

I have created a spreadsheet of the names and I THINK I have it right... I could post the spread sheet on a linked page -but this is BinkyTells list and I will not interfere in how she is running it.

so the totals are:

total adults:67
total adult women: 34 - I am missing two people (Kris3kid - not sure of gender)
total adult men: 33 - I am missing two people (Kris3kid - not sure of gender)

total children: 27
total girls: 17
total boys: 10


please, reread this and check my info!! We are giving gifts to each cabin, but are thinking about adding special items for kids (we don't have kids, but think they should enjoy the gifts!!)

Cayla
yeah i have a spreadsheet too. i dont see the point in sharing this at present when we are splitting into groups.

As your a previous organiser of the FE group, Im getting the impression you feel there is something im not doing quite right in organising this Fish Extender group.

feel free to pm if with advice if this is the case

The route is Barcelona - Montpellier (4.42pm - 9.14pm about €60 per adult)
Overnight stay at Montpellier
Montpellier - Geneve (between 4 and 5 hours about €70 per adult)
Overnight stay at Geneve
Geneve - Amsterdam (around 8 hours about €100 per adult)
This itinerary is the only one where you do drive thru the day (so you realy can see the Alps).

Here are the websites you need to go to to book this:
Barcelona - Montpellier
http://www.renfe.com/EN/viajeros/via...les/index.html
click on this route: España - Francia
Trayecto: Lorca - Montpellier

Montpellier - Geneve:
http://www.voyages-sncf.com/billet-train?hid=MSA

Geneve - Amsterdam:
https://treintickets.nshispeed.nl/d-...eferences.html
We're not headed there, but this looks like a neat trip!! Always such neat trips we learn for the future from fellow DIS members.

Yep. Maybe we can compile a full list of activities and know what still needs to be covered so people are aware. (?) Sarah (binkytell) -- did you have a list already? Maybe it's just that in recent months people are new and not aware there are still activities needing coverage. I think Chris (GoofyNewfie) has them all on the website on their specific pages: https://sites.google.com/site/onamag...lanticjourney/

Super informative website for anyone who has not seen that.

Oh please - I am not suggesting you are doing anything wrong or "not quite right". I am a list maker, and as such I like to keep all the columns aligned. That being said, since my gifts are BOTH cabin and gender specific I needed to get an idea of how many I am making. Since we are giving to all the folks, those numbers are helpful. I extrapolated the information from what you posted is all. Feel free to publish when you feel it is the right time.

As you say - keep it fun! It just seemed like some folks were making it more confusing is all...us? we like roaming the decks and checking out the doors and wonderful decorations!

As others on previous cruises have mentioned - the Dis is NOT the only group that do FE's...so you might want to make sure that folks cabin numbers are correct (that is what the whiteboard is for). Some folks will put out an extender and hope that folks will drop things in without any intention of returning the favor - or being attached to any specific list. There are at least three other TA groups that put out FE's....just sayin'

please no offense was intended or implied. Mia Culpa.

(Okay, not anything from History classes of course, which I really really wish now I had paid more attention in as I am trying to figure out what Rome is known for... LOL) But after pregnancies? Oh yea. I have to write it down. I have this little spiral notebook I ordered from VistaPrint with one of their many sales. It has a map and WBTA pirate night pictures on the front. I have been putting all of our main info here. I know, I have TripIt as well and can upload there, and will before we go, but for now I have the key things in that spiral, especially reservation confirmation numbers, etc. It really is true what they say about "preggo brain" and having to "donate brain cells to your child". No, not preggo again nor any plans, but I just never got those brain cells back! My handy journal helps me.

By the way... I am inbetween appointments with clients and successfully avoiding everything I need to be doing. sigh. I'm going to try to give it a 30-minute burst of energy to tackle laundry.

I. Hate. Laundry.

I'd be happy to store them up on the website and then we can link to them from here.

I should have your email address because of the roll call. If you don't mind me using your email address, I'll send you an email you can reply to.

If anyone has anything else similar, I'm happy to put stuff up on the website. The URL is in my signature. If there are enough people that want to start sending things, I'll be happy to set up an email address that I'll post here. Generally never a good idea to post an email address on a forum like this, but if it makes it easier for people, I'll do it.

My folks did get cruise insurance, and the doc decided to scan me to see if my cancer's grown, so you have my full and complete sympathy. Fingers, toes, and everything crossed that it all turns out well.
