2004 Maui Writers Panama Canal Cruise

In the spring of 2004, shortly after agreeing to his first book deal, Eldon and his girlfriend Crissy took their second cruise together, this one with the Maui Writers group aboard the Holland America ship, MS Rotterdam. Their destination was the Panama Canal, with stops in Aruba, Costa Rica, and the Bahamas. As with the trip to Rome a couple of years earlier, this was a working vacation, with a new short story due every other day. The results of those endeavors can be found in the short story anthology: Ship's Log: Writings at Sea.
