Re: I'm still alive...
Gary, Belated Happy Birthday, and best wishes for an enjoyable adventure.
Yesterday we had a reunioun with old friends. He is 71, and I was just apalled by his physical and mental deterioration. Just proves the old advice, do it while you can.
By our weather reports you have had more heavy weather. Hope you have good anchoring gear or found safe harbor.
I would be interested to hear more about the "lonely" feelings.
