A huge change from Ms. Flicka; Mr. Tin Can and his hero Mr. Barnes; and Mr. 1000 Days. I wish him the best of luck... and try to be nice to him Gui.

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.

Alex: Thanks for a most refreshing post. I've always decried the folks who beat their chest and say "LOOK AT ME". Sounds like you met a REAL person who is just going about his business in a quiet sort of way. And is probably FAR more interesting than the publicity seekers.

Same reason I like talking to real people and finding out their (mostly) interesting stories as opposed to reading some celebrity's autobiography.

Keep us posted!

Best, David

If the wine is in good condotion you will like it it should have a soft fruttie flavour with a hint of wild berries ansd a slight spritz on the toung. I hve just finished a botle of the finest Californian drop, Novella of 2002 vintage a Merlot from the Paso Robles estat, the cork was crusty but I drunk it anyway.
Enjoy yours as the thought that counts.

I'm more than a little envious of you, who live near places where you can meet guys like the solo Aussie, good on ya...... but for those of us who are land locked, Heather, the "Flicka Girl" represents the only contact we have with folks who have moved beyond the talking or dreaming stage. She shared her adventure (or misadventure) with everyone at no cost. I'm dissappointed for her but thankful and i learned alot at her expence. I would enjoy the Aussies trip tremendously if he could share it with us. Would that make him a sellout or a "look at me attention grabber"?

P.S. If a solo sailor honored me with a bottle of wine he had brought across an ocean, it would be considered the finest in my collection and saved for an extra special occassion, but thats just me.......

Rainin'...tell me about it. We're in control...we're faster so we can avoid whether and reduce the chances of bad weather...were more stable...we're more comfortable...we're more like home...we ain't like camping...and we can go futher on fuel and water and provisions.
If $$ ain't a problem....bigger is better!!
