Where would you like to be right now? Be specific.

I'm on the boat at the nav table and there's 2 inches of snow on the deck above and on the hatches. The snow is really coming down.

Of course, I'm thinking about the warm sunny places I could be right now. It gets you thinking.

Where would you like to be right now? Be specific so you'll know if/when you eventually get there. If you are there already, say that too (and congratulations).

If I could be sailing right now, somewhere in the Caribbean, no place specific.

If I can't be sailing, then I have a little place I visit in Jamaica that I'd like to be watching the gals play volley ball with a beer.

It's cold here, and we're getting MORE snow over the weekend.

Dan—

I'll trade places with you, since I'd rather be on my boat than sitting here working...

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.

Here in Tampa it is 76 degrees and sunny. The problem is that the wind has only been around 5 kts for the past few days. I have off today, so might still give it a try. If the wind doesn't cooperate, I have some stuff to do on the boat anyway. Much better than being at work.

Normally, I'd tell you to bite me...but you might take that as an invitation... so, just stop gloating... we're looking at 8-12" of snow here this afternoon.

I've done the US and Brit Virgin Islands, but I think I'd rather be in the Society Islands right now in the South Pacific.

Alternatively, and more realistic, I'd like a 3 day weather window to sail to the Isle of Wight tomorrow or Saturday for dinner at the Folly Inn and hiking on the country paths of the islands. We'll do it, if it's isn't cold and raining and F9.
