A lynx or bobcat will generally run, as that is their preference... and humans aren't all that good eating...tough, greasy, and usually very fatty in this country...

When I was out in Salt Lake City for the 2002 Olympics, I had a chance to photograph a bobcat at almost point blank range... it was outside on the deck of the house we were staying in.

I hear that cougars like foreign cuisine... and Portagee is on their menu most days.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I think they'd stuff an apple in your mouth first... You do look like a very ugly turkey though... which seems accurate to me...

However, that must be a huge fork...

But they like their Portuguese Chook served with French Fries.

Ahoy ya'll,

Weeell, I'm a newbie... would-be wannabe sailor type and have been looking for a site with lots of sailing info.

This place has that... and some humor attached...so after a day or two I don't see an issue with it.

Personally, if ya can't take a joke, get over it... if ya don't like it, ignore it and read on...life's too short...

On the info side... How large of a boat can be solo-sailed? Let's say a properly equipped Hunter 34 or 37, Irwin Citation same size- or others?? Loking in terms of a live-aboard situation, but my dog REFUSES to help me sail the dang thing when I find THE boat...

Thanx in advance,

PY

Count yourself lucky for having seen a wild cat of any sort. They usually stay away from people. I haven't seen a cat. I've seen most other forms of wildlife here in the rockies, including a porcupine once, and have even chased bears out of campsites.

And as for breakfast, I'm up for it if you think you have the time. I'll reply to your PM with details.
