Re: I'm still alive...
A very happy birthday to you, sir! Enjoy your journey!
Tomorrow will end the second week of my solo voyage to the sunny south Florida Keys. In more than 500 miles of travlin' south on the Intra-Coastal Waterway and Chesapeake Bay, this is only the second time I've been able to get online service. The trip has been exciting, sometimes scary, especially when the weather turned nasty, and very , very lonesome.
Tomorrow also marks my 72nd birthday, which I'll celebrate by washing some clothes, drinking a tall Margaretta, and having a chocolate cookie instead of birthday cake.
Still have more than 700 miles to go just to reach Miami, so at this rate, it will take another two or more weeks. I lost 4 days to bad weather, which resulted in my sitting out storms. So I just thought I would let you folks know that I'm not dead yet.
