Being as I have frm Key West, Aren't you afraid of pulling up that line one day and finding the mermaids have taken your beer!??? Once the word gets out that your fishing with beer, no telling what will be tugging on that line!!!!

Re: longer than stuff lasts in a frige

Thanks cupper3, I'm actually kind of new to the computer world. My wife bought me a lap top for christmas so I would have something to do while I'm at work for two weeks at a time on the tug boat. I have heard of this BLOG you speak of but have never even read some one elses. Most of the ideas I put to use are either in Sailing the farm or the Essene Gospels, ( I'm not religous, just a sprout recipe source) I like to make things as simple as easy, with as little complicated gear and maintenance as possible. I don't want to rely on 2000 people going to work in the morning so my systems will work, ie, G.P.S. , combustable engine and gas stations and refrigerated food and electrical gizmos that tell me stuff I don't really need to know down to the decimal. or that perform simple tasks like moving water from a tank to a cup. I like manual, gravity, wind and natural way's of moving stuff and myself around the planet. Self sufficiant, truly free from town. I guess it spawn from being, young, broke, with a sailboat in the key's and anchored off Christmas tree Island back when all the hippies had a community on the island, That's where I learned about the sprout stuff. I just transposed it to cruising. MY boat sunk off the Island And I moved into the woods and built a TEE PEE out of my sails. I lived like that with the hippies for 6 months.

Right now I'm on a tug in Miami and have a sprint air card. When I'm gone, I'm gone and I don't get on line. The back country around Key West has cell service for 10 miles out, I can be in some gunk hole out there and still have service.

More likely a pirate will steal my anchor while I'm using it. ( true story) I guess he figured I had 2 so Why not? If' I'm anchored right off town I use ice, but that only lasts a few day's once I set sail. The beer hit's the bottom when the ice melts. It keeps it from getting hot and undrinkable. ( if that's possble)

Just the opposite for me. I taught my dad to sail. ABout a year later, he was the proud owner of a Tayana 42. Now in the PNW and cruising the sound!!

Father to son, son to father, big boat, little boat, coastal or ocean crossing, I'm just glad we are all out there doing it to whatever capacity we are capable of. I taught my step-dad to sail and he now has a hobie one behind his lake house in N.H. He's alway's calling for maintanence/ sailing tips. I'm a huge advocate of the sailng community, and I want people to understand that it's not just a rich man's past time, but something any body can do. And with a small initial investment, it can be extremely affordable.

Re: longer than stuff lasts in a frige

AAron,
You mentioned working two weeks at a time on the tug. How much time off do you get after each stint and how offten do you manage to escape for six weeks or so ?

Cheers

Andrew B
