Oh I don't know, I suppose it depends on what adventuresome means to YOU. One mans ho hum is another mans exciting night/week/lifetime. Maybe you should not judge a book by its cover. And there are very few ugly/overweight covers in The land of Smiles.

I agree, as long as they actually are. I find that a little questionable with Nike, not the Rock Stars.

I don't follow the production delay criticisms, I haven't even put the boxes away from parts that arrived two weeks ago yet. But, if you're pretending to fix your boat yourself and you aren't, it's little more than a hot babe washing a car in a bikini.

I got to go to college and the next few years saw me in Korea and then Viet Nam.
My son graduated college then completed Marine OCS and navy flight training and deployment to Iraq.
While I salute young people's freedom to pursue adventures like sailing Block Island Sound, doing so does not make them Rock Stars any more than the adventures many of us faced upon entering the adult world of work and service.
All of this self aggrandizement via electronic media is getting a little boring, especially when the waves reach four feet and camera gets put away in order to save (sail) the boat.
Oh me, aren't sour grapes wonderful?

Hey, we can't all be Rock Stars... Who's gonna comprise the Audience, after all?

Nice work if you can get it, eh?

Some of you sound like grumpy old men who need someone to fetch a beer because it's too hard to get out of the arm chair with the broken springs. Dance the dance again or let it go already.
Preach it sista!

I don't know about rock stars, but their Facebook page says they're in Solomons, MD, while their YouTube video posted yesterday says they're still back in Newport.
