Nice. Thanks!

Re: Sailing off to live on a deserted island

I rented an uninhabited island owned by the church in eastern Fijji Good fishing and fruit. Comfortable from the get go but alone. Not for me I found. Much prefer the islands and inlets of our north coast but I don't think you would like it.

Re: Sailing off to live on a deserted island

If you want an uninhabited island where you see no people, etc., then why do you want the U-tube business, internet crap and so forth? That's certainly not the "castaway" persona.
