oops i meant to say that in order to vote here you should at least have read their logs first person and not just be responding based on the arguments forwarded on this forum

Good for them. Gotta admire people that carry on even when things do not go so well. We bought them a pizza.

Wishing P&A smooth sailing across the Atlantic.

They’re charming & entertaining half-witted idiots.
I appreciate a self-depreciating sense of humour, and a well-turned phrase.
I don’t appreciate idiocy & foolishness.
The poll doesn’t provide an approximative choice, for me.

It appears that they are having a good time and I do enjoy reading their logs. Good Luck to them...

If I did...

If I did what they're doing with their level of experience I'd expect to die. Maybe it really is true that god protects kids and fools!! I certainly don't begrudge them anything. Each to his own.

Not enough choices in the poll:

Don't agree with # 3, as I appreciate what they are doing. More young folks should do the same in my opinion.

Have not read the entire log, sort of gave up or lost interest after the first few chapters.
Good luck to the Bums however.

We think their journey shows that too many people are reading too many magazines, buying too much stuff, waiting way too long, preparing way too much and listening to WAY TOO many other "experts" and they never make it out here.
