Why use a boat? Your in Arizona, just start walking south, and you'll be out of this country that you don't like in a couple hours.

I bet Plan B don't involve a sailboat, I'd donate towards plane tickets to Kiribati if everyone there would promise not to send them back again.

Re: Latest sailing debacle

What sort of boat was it? In every account I read, I see a reference to a "small sailboat," which is not particularly helpful.

Re: Latest sailing debacle

I see this as more as a religious nut debacle than a sailing one.

I would like to know the details of the sailing though.
