A Cruiser Enterprise?

As I was biking back from the store today, the thought came to mind, that the time I spend biking and sailing, would make great carbon offsets for those who wish to buy their eco-salvation rather than earn it. Every hour under sail, every mile on the bike should be worth something for the style over substance crowd at the forefront of ecological awareness.

Now, if someone was sufficently motivated (notice, I didn't say greedy) enough to put together a way to market these offsets, it seems there is a ready market of sellers just waiting to be mined. Unfortunately, it's too much like work to me, but surely there is someone out there that can see the vertible gold mine that awaits.

My doctor said I need to lose some weight and that I need to exercise. Can I buy your biking time to use for exercise credits?

John,

I believe you have a Walker bay, how are you getting your bike ashore ? I'm asking because I have a Walker bay also.

Free - so far, I haven't used the dink. I've either been able to offload it from the boat to shore, or, here at Boot Key, I had the Smorgasboat take it in for me ($4). If I had to use the dink though, I'd either put it rear wheel against the center seat with the front wheel on the bow, or athwartship in front of the center seat.

Slip - how much they worth to ya?

Stars are sold, $50 to name a star after yourself or a loved one. I think someone is selling land on the moon also. The other day I heard that someone was selling spaces in heaven. Given that these people figured out how to make money from their ideas, yours doesn't seem that far out.

There's one born every minute.

Meanwhile, if you can't make money off it, at least you have the satisfaction of knowing you're doing something good. Some people have to be paid to be good. You're good for nothing!
