Well here it is October again here in Vermont, leaves are turning color and falling. Days are getting shorter and the geese are flapping around up there honkin at me . They seem to be poking fun with their calls reminding me that the season is over, and your boat is not going to sail again till we come back from our winter vacation down south. I hate geese. So today I have decided to blow everything off , work , chores , the lot . I'm going sailing . Soon as this post is written I'm jumping in the van , trailing my daysailor down to Lake Champlain and that will be that , the last sail of the year for me and "The Silk Pig" thats my boats name BTW. Its looking like a very fine day for it. 70+ degrees with clear skys and 5-10kts out of the SW. Should be the best way to finish off the year
So with a heavy heart off I go to beat the wind into my will once more. You folk that live in sunny climes , count your blessings , those of us that live up here face this season end thing all too soon. So if theres anyone else out there in Sailnet Land that has the end o season blues like me , heres to blowin everything off for just one more day on the water. This is not a plea for sympathy its a shout out to the rest of the New Englanders and NewYorkers I feel for ya with a heavy heart . So if your boat isnt allready on the hard , play hookie , go sail !
Its hard trying to nap with that bilge pump alarm going off all the time
