I am new, and it was that thread that caught my attention

As we are planning to become live aboard sailors in the future, I have been reading books on how couples make the extra income to continue to do what they have dreamed about. We started with Bob Bitchens mag, and was soon taken over by that call to sea Or I should say hubby was. I soon followed and we rush to the mailbox for all our sailing books! But I have been following several solo men and women, and was watching the style that each has used to not only increase their own kitty, but to advance personal causes that they cared deeply about. It's really our choice to give or not to give to the adventures of others out there. There has been so many different stories and each reflects the character of the sailor and I quess we all tend to be supportive of those most like ourselves. I appreciated the give and take on the posts. And hope that this is a good sign that there isn't an issue that is taboo or will be censored. I have alot of questions. And I hope this is a great place to kick back, ask the foolish questions, share the stories as I begin my sailing classes and take some good natured ribbing. Happy to be on board.

As far as starting a new thread is concerned, if they do, they'll just get told to shut up and get linked to the old thread, with someone saying "we already talked about that."

Beyond that, why should I have to start a new thread that is directly related to comments and ideas from an existing one? Simply from an information architecture point of view that's a pretty inefficient system.

Should you find you have no more questions then the reason to go off Crusing will be gone. I hope you never run out of questions. Foolish or otherwise life is mostly about questions and less about answers. Sailing is more about showing up than anything else.

Sailing class stories are always a favorite here!

Smile Thanks for the Welcome!

My hubby is an excellent sailor. He has sailed with Roger Olson and John Kreishmer (?) He loves the more unruly seas. Loves the challenge of it all. And there is alway a story to be told. I appreciate the words of wisdom about enjoying the moment. We realize that how we measure time on land, isn't how one does it on the sea. And it's just a matter of casting off and not looking back. At least not for a while. I don't want to have expectations of how I think it should be, I want to just get ur Done... learn the important things on how to stay alive, how to feed the captain and how to avoid those moments when you get yelled at in front of the whole harbor for something "he" forgot to do... Thanks for the welcome and will check back in to continue to read posts. It takes a very long time to cover all the different sources of information you have here! Thanks! OceanView

My guess is that it bumps to the top every time someone votes.

Ooops. My bad - I voted. Probably because this thread keeps popping up at the top - LOL

Maybe we should start a "Should the "Should the Bumfuzzle Thread Be Locked" be locked thread."

It should be locked. If it isn't, then I am doign something wrong, because I was sure I had locked it once before. I will take a look. Hmmmm, I even seem to remember Pat making some comment on some site, maybe his, that it had been closed and made a big song and dance about it.

Dan is suggesting locking this poll, not the already locked bumfuzzle thread.
I found his turn of phrase quite witty.

But hasn't this been done to death before???????

I like to peruse their website from time to time to find out where they are etc etc.

They set out as inexperienced and probably naive, but they have achieved teir objective, sailed around the world, and that is more than many on this forum will ever acheive.

Yeah. Keep it locked. Why would we want to discuss successful circumnavigators on a cruising forum?
