going back to the camp in Afghanistan today. He will be missed. I let
him know what you said. He said it means a lot to have people still
say it. He said the war has been going on for so long now that most
people don’t realize that people are still dying. He asked me to
tell you thank you from his heart!!!
here was our trip:
I live in Charleston and on saturday my wife and I did go sailing in the Stono River (which separates James Island from Johns Island and then lets out into the Atlantic between Folly and Kiawah. We have a capri 14.2 It was a great day, and the wind was very nice. We almost capsized when I let my wife hold the tiller extension while I tightened up the job halyard.
There were 4 or 5 other sailboats. Tons of power boats. It was a zoo near the boat launch (I trailer it with my Jetta). So many power boaters. It was a real challenge being in that holding pattern with no engine. I wish Charleston county would add some more boat ramps, especially some that might let you launch right into Charleston harbor. I'm lucky to have one a few blocks from my house (Elliott cut) but the current can be really bad so I can only use that one during slack water.
