If he makes it half way and lives it will be huge. Go check it out find the thread and post and post!! Back round so you can find out some with out all the bad crowd making the water turn to mud is expedition watch the shackelton epic wwwoutsideonline Regards, Lou
Here are a couple of the "dock huggers" (the Admiral and me) finishing first in our class in the 25th annual Blackburn challenge; a 20 mile open ocean race that finishes in Blackburn's home port of Gloucester, MA. We couldn't find a dock to hug so we got into one of our small double enders and joined the salute to Mr. Blackburn! A maritime hero of ours.
