O how I miss Rochester. Went to RIT and lived in Henrietta for a few years. Don't miss the long winters but its nice to be so close to the thousand islands and the lake.
I constantly constantly constantly pay attention to wind and weather...thats good practice whether boating or not.
Tacking the car...different strokes for different folks I guess.
We all get it differently. Wait till you get a boat. It's all over then. Total loss of sanity.
