Aloha to San Diego: USS Midway (part 2) - Crew Quarters

Continuing my tour of the USS Midway, I followed the crowd to the crew quarters ... 

... notice the stroller parking ...

... since the hatches are not conducive for wheels!

Interesting tidbit about the snack bar ...

 ... yes, that's a mannequin.

Notice the prices ....

.... and the movie on the shelf!

Each bunk is assigned a locker.  I admire the sailors who live like this for my freedom.

I am giving away a book choice from my convention stash to one randomly selected commenter from this week's blog posts. To enter the giveaway,

1. Leave a comment about the bunk beds - which one would you claim? I'd pick the middle bunk.

2. Comments are open through Saturday, July 23, 10 pm in Baltimore.

3. I'll post the winner on Sunday, July 24.

  1. Definitely the middle one for me.

  2. Middle one for me as well but my second choice would be the top.

  3. I would get the bottom bunk, so if I had to get up and go to the bathroom, I could get their really quick.

  4. I have to go along with the middle. The bottom looks smaller unless it's an optical illusion.

  5. I'd go for the middle, second choice would be the top - not sure I could handle the bottom.
