G O'B - listening now. Nice.

You live in San Diego ? Nice town. I've friends who live there. He used to work for Dennis Connor. Got to hoon about on the Stars and Stripes chase boat out with the lads on the Cup boats. Few years back now although they still live in SD. Love those damn Sea Lions although it wasn't my boat they were sleeping thank heavens.

Port Hedland a bit bashed around but still there I hear. That was a nasty one that went through this week. Needless to say this is not the time of year to cruise the Kimberley Coast.

Small world ... Bob Connor (aka Beautiful Bob, S/V Bobalu), Dennis Connor's cousin/uncle/something like that, worked for the wife in St Pete years ago.

Port Hedlland ... a left and then a quick right ... all the Oz storms look backwards and upside down from here ... a smashing performance indeed.

High desert here ... did internship in San Diego, love the place but too expensive, too crowded, and it's in California ... make it there once a year to taste the salt and visit Black's Beach ... will launch Cockeyed Bob there, 'til then, it's the wife's Capri at 7000'.

All good things in time.

Regarding the route, something I should make clear, just in case you think I know what I am talking about .

Louisiades is probably a bum steer. My intention is to head north to Thursday Island then either west to the Kimberleys and return or East to Louisiades and the Solomons. If you are coming from the East however, you would probably be best advised to come through New Caledonia , across to north east coast of Queensland then up to TI or head North West from NC to TI. I want to go through the Louisiades beccause they are not so often visited and are supposedly an intereting place to see plus I wish to visit a specific island south of Bougainville. (family history). It may be that the Lousiades is a bit too far north when coming from the East. To be honest I don't know but I will find out.

I've not done this trip previously so I could be talking through my arse but it is what I'd like to do. I've been up to TI and west from there but not as far as the Kimberley Coast itself. Nor have I gone east from TI. New Guinea has a reputation for lawlessness but from what I read that's confined mainly to Port Moresby and Bougainville.

Cheers

TD

In southern New England we are expecting 6 inches to 1 foot of snow and getting cooler, some might say cold.

If he's still out on the water when this "winter storm" hits... I don't think we'll be hearing back from him, except maybe as a headline.

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.
