Since they have replaced the steel guard rails and upgraded the rock walls, a well designed boat might be able to luge Meyers. Still have a couple of flat miles before Lake Tahoe, that could pose a problem.

Re: My latest adventure starts today!

No worries about the flat wind less sections. I'll have 300 feral cats on harness to pull the land yacht along the doldrum bits...

Re: My latest adventure starts today!

I'd make an educated guess on why eskimos use dogs for that but... I'm not educated in this matter, there might be a good reason though...

I am a crazy cat lady. But only one cat,so far anyway. Mr. Timmy, who has an uncanny resemblance to Zee's Bubba De boatcat, was pressed ganged into the sailing life and suffers a bit from mal de mur.

I had a dog that felt the only good cat was a flat cat.

When flattened, they suffer from mal de purr.

Here's my personal favorite. It's odd how many of the poor $500 a mo bunch eat beans and rice. This is better, and cheaper when you factor in the fuel cost and time. I'm busy. Who has all day to cook? And the heat! And the steam!

Directions: Open can, slam can on plate, add garnish, eat with fingers and tongue, rinse plate, rinse and squash can. Save can to sell ashore. 30 second meals!

Meeee yow!

Re: My latest adventure starts today!

You know some of that cat food looks pretty darn good. Mr. Timmy is pretty much only eating salmon now. I wonder how long THAT will last...

Mr. Timmy has backed down very large dogs before. He wears dog collars and a dog harness. Cat collars are too small for him.
