I enjoyed them! Fun, funny, poignant, and sometimes even downright inspirational...

However, in the spirit of full disclosure I have to say that Bob is a friend and business partner of mine. Before I met him four years ago, though, I had only read Latitudes & Attitudes magazine sporadically. I, like most everyone else, started out with subscriptions to Sail and Cruising World and slowly came around to appreciating the spirit and soul of Lats & Atts. What most people don't realize is other than a few monthly columns (Tania Aebi is going to take a break, BTW), the entire magazine is basically written by its readers. The stories may not be as "professional", and there are the famous typos in every issue, but there is a refreshing first person sincerity and passion that comes through.

Of all the people I have met in my life, he is definitely an individual, and one of the few people who actually lives by the slogan he so often uses: "Don't dream your life, live your dream".
