EEEEIkes Clay, I once rode a Honda 750 from Sunnyvale to Santa Curz, CA and became a human cramp! Every muscle form the belly down was locked! Great job on the Bucket List.

I dragged a fishing line from Plymouth England to Norfolk VA (with breaks in Azores and Bermuda) and caught NOTHING. It's nice to know someone else is in the same class of fisherman as me.

I have the MD $50 boat fishing permit, but like you, when I put a line in the water fish jump in other boats. But I do take out family members a few times a year for fishing trips. One year we caught about 50 fish in a half day, but not a single rock.

If you're putting Annapolis on your list, be sure to include a visit to the Naval Academy museum at Preble Hall (a must for military history and phenomenal ship models). In addition to what others have indicated, I'd include Langford (sp?) Creek on the Eastern shore, and explore all the way up by dinghy. I'm also really fond of Deltaville, VA, just a nice small town. Love St Michaels (anchor on the back side, Sn Domingo Creek, and walk the 3 blocks into town to avoid the chaos in the main harbor) and I hope to spend more time in Solomons. Plaindealing Creek near Oxford.

We really enjoyed the Dismal Swamp Canal ... but we draw <5 feet. We didn't bump bottom, but did knock some small tree branches into the cockpit.

Maybe its obvious but for a bucket list I'd add getting a photo of your boat under sail with the iconic Thomas Point Light, or Bay Bridge, in the background.

rock,

I hear what you say, but still sad. The day will come I'll bet when your "back yard' is a favorite part of the bucket list and maybe, by or before then, you will be able to see your toes when standing in it.

Welcome back Clay! When in college I rode my Honda Super Hawk a grand total of 180 miles from W Lafayette to Dayton and though I'ld made a major trip.

On the bucket list I would recommend a stop near Solomons. There's a creek(Mill Creek, the one past the highway bridge and opposide Cuckold Creek) where you can anchor and dinghy ashore to a park with three miles of trails though the woods. I've anchored there and jogged the trail in the early morning hours and have seen a half of dozen deer on some mornings.

Also a stop at St Mary's college to visit the historic site there. Kinda like a mini Williamsburg.

For those who might have missed the thread, a group of Bay sailors are in the process of making up a SailNet Photo Op on the Severn... check it out if you haven't seen it and get on the list.

Want to add my $0.02 to the Bucket List. I am new to sailnet and would like to mention a couple of nice anchorages just outside of Annapolis.
I have been sailing the nothern Bay on bareboat charters for the past ten years and have been introduced to some fabulous anchorages in this area. Two that are only minutes from Annapolis are Whitehall and Mill Crks.
Coming south on the 'Bay' just under the twin briges on the starboard (rgt.) are two perfect anchorage creeks, Whitehall Crk. andMill Crk. Both are well marked and plenty of water. If you choose Mill Crk. you willl find Cantlers Resturaunt part the way up the creek. Check their website for exact location and docking facility. The crabcakes are perfection.

I have recently partnered in a 27' tiller steered sloop on Middle rvr. MD. My partner and I were going to overnight to Swan Crk. (nr. Rock Hall) but he has to work so I am going solo...my first solo on the boat. I'm sure I can handle it even W/O self tailing or auto tiller. I am going to buy auto inflating life vast tomorrow.......we'll see.
