Re: Sailing on network TV! "Chasing Shackleton" on tonight!

Kudos to PBS for NOT playing up the reality show aspect. There really are 6 guys on 22 foot boat making an 800 mile trip in the southern ocean using 1916 nav equipment and clothing. Unless they're all simpletons there's bound to be some drama. The low hanging fruit would be to capitalize on the "you took a bad reading you putz" and I'm glad they didn't. I live and work in "reality" I don't want to watch more of it on TV.

Keep the expenses low and the good times high.
