I owe Mr. Lepiarczyk a visit. You are welcome to join me. The last time I spoke to Andy, he welcomed me aboard his boat. To this date, I have always been overseas (as I am now) and have not been able to take him up on his offer. He is such a nice, accomodating guy. I can't wait to meet him. He just loves to talk about sailing, so he's got the right audience here!
He told me he couldn't find a suitable vessel in NA, so he flew over to France and singlehanded the boat back to Vancouver, via Panama. This guys got balls and my hat goes off to him. That's official.
We sometimes strive to emulate our Heroes, and that's my goal. To do what he did, but I want to take the love-of-my-life with me.
My ears are wide open, trying to keep mouth closed, and keep learning (fast!)
