Re: Who from SailNet would you most like to meet in person?

Good question.

I have met over 50 or 60 already and talked to numerous others on the phone, We are lucky in the Chesapeake as we have a really active group and get together a lot over the year including having an annual Rondevous. So I hope to meet most in my region sooner or later. I got to meet Mainesail (my idol) Chuckles and David PM in October who i followed over the years. Jeff H is a really cool guy too.

I am hoping to meet some of my LI brethern on my trips up north. Like Caleb, Tempest, Rob Gallagher, and Bene ( We have talked though)..

I am going to put down the following names as I think they will be more difficult to meet becasue of geographics.

BLjones- knwledgeable,we got off on the wrong foot, seems like a good guy
Sequitar- not just his voyage, but he loves and knows his food
Faster- so evenhanded
JonEisenberg- knowledge and is usually even handed for an old salt
PCP- I goota know what makes him tick and hes very knowledgeable
CarlieCobra- boat building knowledge
Cruisingdad- need BBQ tips and need to show him how to use a knife
Jameswilson- like his stories and to argue politics
JRD22- love his boat
BLTski- seems like a good guy
Minniewaska- we but heads but over margarittas would have a good time
Hellosailor- have always enjoyed his posts
Melra- cause you seem neat...and can put up with gary
Jackdale- to discuss politics
PBeezer to argue politics
Killary-sailor- his stories have to be great
Cupper- to discuss politics
Marcel- Just because
LT Goshen- Just because
Medsailor-to just talk life as I like his life philosphy
Hillnme- good guy

There are so many geeze. I feel lucky and blessed to have met so many, and when i comes down to it many of us share the love of the sea and boats. I have come to the conclusion that after looking at my PB friends who are nice, and just love to party, the sailors really all have opinions ( strong ones too). I think that comes from not just anyone who wants to sail can and just do it. You have to have knowledge and like a challenge. With that comes a personality mind set which is semi type A or strongly type A and opinionated. Id rather have that than a bunch of dead heads.

This is my only reason for being on Sailnet really to gain knowledge, the commradierie, and I believe in paying it back to get others interested. A family ( kids/ couples) that sails together, spends time togther on a small boat out in nature gets a special bond. I am glad sailnet exists as it makes it easier to meet similar "sailing" people.

I hope I someday get to meet the people on my list and have left many others off
