starboardyacht is on a distinguished road
I'm more than a little envious of you, who live near places where you can meet guys like the solo Aussie, good on ya...... but for those of us who are land locked, Heather, the "Flicka Girl" represents the only contact we have with folks who have moved beyond the talking or dreaming stage. She shared her adventure (or misadventure) with everyone at no cost. I'm dissappointed for her but thankful and i learned alot at her expence. I would enjoy the Aussies trip tremendously if he could share it with us. Would that make him a sellout or a "look at me attention grabber"?

P.S. If a solo sailor honored me with a bottle of wine he had brought across an ocean, it would be considered the finest in my collection and saved for an extra special occassion, but thats just me.......
