Re: Jeffs Last Sail- MUST READ

Wow, glad to see someone living like they were dying... but it's a bit sad when the latter part is actually the case. I wish him the safest of travels for as long as possible.

Re: Jeffs Last Sail- MUST READ

Thanks to everyone.

Please consider helping Jeff in anyway with any amount.

When you're sentenced to his destiny, any act of kindness works wonders for giver and getter.

Re: Jeffs Last Sail- MUST READ

I have often said if I came down with some fatal, I would sail away and never come back. I give Jeff a LOT of credit for actually going out there and doing it. Definatly the "adventure of a lifetime"

You gotta smile!

The Admiral and I call "It" the, "Josh Slocum Plan for long term care". He kept going out until, one trip, he didn't come back.

Considering the options it is my druthers. We intend to avoid drowning in a bowl of applesauce, too!

Go Jeff!

Re: Jeffs Last Sail- MUST READ

I'm glad to hear that he made it past his prognosis of a few months (Christmas I think the original newscast said). How is his health? Is he getting any medical support along the way?

Re: Jeffs Last Sail- MUST READ

I had received 2 or 3 emails from Jeff. I emailed Jeff a while back hoping to get a point of contact to $$ and have not heard.
Anyone have more info??
