Recently people have been joining me on my Sunday Walks in Downtown Albany. Typically, I walk in Albany when I'm scheduled as a tour guide on the USS Slater. A slide show and a map are detailed at this blog entry. I plan on walking on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27. You can contact me at:

8/9/2009 - City Data

Had a discussion today about the relative cost of Hawaii relative to other Navy Home ports. When I was on active duty (40 years ago) use to hate Honolulu. While it was a very beautiful place, in those days one of my major concerns was the cost of beer (relative to my meager biweekly salary).

A great site for cost of living comparisons is City Data. Two of the cities discussed were Honolulu, Hawaii and New London, Connecticut. While I was doing research I discovered that the Navy was considering closing New London Base.
