Gary, Never give up, we all, at least those of us who are getting up there, have those same feelings after a long pleasurable but difficult sail, especially on the return leg. You sounded so very positive going south and have inspired so many of us who have not had the time or funds to take on such an adventure. You are still an inspiration to those who are thought to be members of the Over The Hill Gang. My money is on you Gary, you will sail south again. Your are still that same person who headed south on the beginning leg.

Had a very good friend years ago who is no longer with us. He was 84 when we met him in 1987, still single handed to Mexico and the Bahamas until he was in his mid 90's. His wife would fly down to meet him. What an amazing fellow Avery Katz was. He told me that he too saw that aging old fart in the mirror after each voyage.

Would hope to still, some day, experience that which yon have accomplished. Thank You Gary for sharing with us all.
