Good choice. Das Goat caries a little negative baggage...

He doesn't swim he sails and he was tacking away from you. You really need to keep a proper watch David. Mow (man o war) is the vessel under sail and therefor has the right of way. I am amazed Mow didn't report you. Where you napping perhaps?

Dear David:

I know I agreed to this solo circumnavigation thing, but ...........

Well, the name "Love Goat" got me thinking about Bikini Girl and Pirate Girl, and well ...........

We need to talk.

Sincerely,

The Goat

THAT'S the one I've been waiting for since the day of the Kid's announced challenge. Pure Satyrfaction.

DOJ, I'm truly honored and pleased to have my suggestion for boat name accepted. Please tell the Kid I'll meditate every day for his safety, and toast his victory over Saltimander.

Here's looking at you, Kid!

Sounds like hes in a rut.

Hard day at the office at www.stop the goat .com I did have some luck in stopping this. Several congressmen warmed up to the idea of having a no kid left behind bill. Basically if it passes all the goats will have to have health insurance and more importantly if one goat goes for a sale all the goats have to go none can be left behind.
Also a nearby neighborhood association has agreed to change there bylaws.
Where now article A line 3 reads "no property will house or board farm animals" It now reads No property will house or board farm animals especially double restricted are farm animals that as minors have been solo circumnavigating. They wouldn't go for restricting salamander sailors.
It still has to go to the full board but I feal like I have interfered in some one elses dreams and inflicted my opinion on a few

I have to say, that I am raising a goat of my own, and at this age goat is far to tender to be circumnavigating on his own. At this age I would never let my goat graze in the field across the street after dark, let alone try a stunt like this! by the time he gets back he will be tough and chewy. This is just a shame. Some people have no culinary sense at all.

First goat to circumnavigate goes to DOJ but youngest goat? The field is wide open at this stage!

How long will Goat ruminate over this voyage before departing?
Saltimander has passed over the horizon and disappeared from the radar... (Please no one call the Coast Guard!!!)

As you can see, there are also goats working in the boating industry. This youngster is training as a dockhand, at Reedsville VA.
