RobGranger I'd be available after May 14th. If you are running late on your departure contact me. I'm 45, been sailing 33 years. Non-smoker, married, no drugs bla bla bla...

I also live in Virginia so ending in the Chesapeake would be perfect.

email is rgranger AT sbc DOT edu

Fair winds,

lovethewind Hey Cap'n, Good morning. I, too, live on the Chesapeake Bay, just south of Annapolis, (23miles). I am leaving on my annual pilgramage to Florida on the 15th of April, to Key West. From there I usually head up the Weat coast toward Naples, Ft Myers... etc into the pan handle where my son lives. This trip is via motorcycle, so I have no problem with wind ; ). I am 49, retired, married, (underfoot) non smoker, and I do enjoy a few rum drinks when the days work is done. Basically, I can meet pretty much anywhere on your trip, and be available for the duration. Drop me a line, lets talk further.
Thanx for your time,

i have my own pfd, spot and other gear. i could also meet half way or where ever if needed.
Thanks for the interest Scotty. How much of the trip would you be up for? We just moved up here from Florida so I could take your mind off smoking by picking your brain for info. on the Chesapeake...Contact me directly if you like.

TomCat27 Yes, I'd be covering f&b for crew as well as travel expenses. I've been responding individually to all interested so far, trying to make the pieces of the puzzle fit. Thanks all. I can be contacted directly at mikerodney at mac dot com.

Thanks all.
