Cover: U.S. Vacations have Americans spread all over the nation.
One of those people is Betty Wagner of Camden, NJ. Her stepfather
is a yacht captain so she sees vacations close to the sea. In this picture
she is on an old "Windjammer" which has been made into sort of a dude
ranch sailing vessel. Dude sailors on cruises are supposed to rough
it, be willing to help out anywhere from the galley to the rigging.
Usually they are more willing than helpful. For more ideas on
vacations go to page 58 to 69.
