We fixed the compas-turned-time machine after that whole Trenton thing. It was a bit unreal. I thought I saw guys on horses and women riding side saddle. Must have been a SCA meet-up. Yea, that's it, it must have been.

Atlantic City is a lot of fun. QuickMick and I had a rum drinking contest. Not sure who one. Mick tossed his cookies and I passed out. St Anna ended up getting the girl because of it, so I guess he won.

Regards
Brad

Bene, I just love ya man,

When I'm in my retirement home, I will remember it just like you tell it!

When SD was talking about a Gorilla out the back, I thought he meant the 'griller' - thats why I was thinking of CD


By the way, that chick hanging off Pollards arm looked a bit like CD in drag. We ought to sought this out - before we get any further.

St Anna,

Maybe you should write about that nasty crash jibe we did.

Brad

Hey Bene,
Sorry, mate, I'm Still (no relation) struggling with the CD (?) player. Its a Dog of a thing. I guess I should Smack it about a bit, but the darn MGMhead is stuck inside the dryver. Doesnt matter, we can sing the old viking war chant; "Omotaka Omataka oi Oi Oi!" to the tune of 'Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi'. Get that rank amateur Boasun to lead the chant.He's a bittruff but he'll be quick,mick

Where can we get our ffill of good Ale in the city heart? - I know, thats where we need CaleBD

As long as we are tied up to the B/Pollard [typo], we might get some maintenance done. I see you can supply the MBene505. The amount we need, you might hire a chinook to fly it in.
Pathetic, isnt it

PS -I forgot to mention David dulce or Leonem.Sorry guys - keep your hands on your own 'oars' from now on!

Good that you picked up a pen/keyboard and started writing in the thread. There is no good or bad writing for this journal. We just need to tell folks how the trip was, as best we can and with the time we have.

Anyone else want to "tell it like it is"?

What about our midnight discussions on "inside versus outside"? That crash jibe next to the big tanker? Shore excursions?

There are so many stories to tell here. Pick one and go for it, budding writer.

Regards,
BRad

Just got a good internet connection so posting a little more about the trip.

We got hit with a big storm, so I'm not sure where we are. But I'm pretty sure we didn't get as far south as we wanted.

So we were effectively lost and becalmed out in the middle of the ocean. It was really amazing. So what did we do? Well, I climbed the mast and QuickMick went for a nice kayak session. We honestly didn't know he had a kayak on board. He must have stowed it somewhere when we were ashore buying beer.



It was pretty calm.

St Anna borrowed the kayak and took this picture.


Some of the water droplets were a little scary, so I was glad when the wind picked back up again.



We ALMOST stopped at this lovely little island, but something about it just said "stay away", so we kept going.


It might have been a good place to get some fresh water.

I hear more SN-ers are joining us, I trust they'll add to this thread when they get here.

Regards,
Brad
