If it's good I'll talk a streak.
But I could sit with no background for a loooooonng time too.
We should go sailing.

Something to ponder.

Me? I have two Natural High dried meals for quick food. Heat water, add to package, wrap towel around bag, and eat anywhere- anytime. That and kippers or sardines

Would that problem with hallucinations occur solo sailing on a long trip -- I'm particularly thinking about the 13 year old who sailed around the world. We debated the wisdom of that at the time. Personally I wouldn't want any 13 year old of mine going through that by herself ...

If Dave (goboatingnow), with his limited experience is qualified to sail his boat, there's no doubt the 13 year old who has successfully sailed around the world had sufficient experience and skill to do it.
