I'm not going.
Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for the gift, but I went on a 32-day cruise in 2015, and three years ago we went on this very same 3-day cruise when Ed won his 10 Year Safety Award. Honestly, the hassle of flying from Arizona to Florida to get on a boat to go to the Bahamas for one day isn't worth it. I've opted to take the alternative gift.
The certificate came with a letter congratulating me on my "outstanding achievement". I'm not sure how many miles I've driven at this point, but I'm probably up around 500,000 or so. That's a lot of pavement, baby.
Done without incident, save for a few deer strikes and a very injured bear.
