Re: Renegade Sailing Adventures.

Congratulations! Nice looking wood and nice music inside. I could relate to that.

Re: Renegade Sailing Adventures.

I am already meeting folks and making friends at the Marina, kind of strange I have hardly spent any time today on my boat, been on everyone else'es.

That's alright though, I am having a great time.

Yes, you do! I remember back in 1972 during our first passage from the Chesapeake down to Florida. We were at a dock in Gergetown, SC and an older guy went through the steps, showing me how to change my stuffing. A few days ago I was the old guy showing a new boater how to troubleshoot his atomic four and set him up for his first time operating it.

We briefly discussed how this fellowship among boaters transcends many strata and brings people together who otherwise might have little in common.

Re: Renegade Sailing Adventures.

I crashed out about 4 this afternoon, woke up just after midnight.

I have been so stressed out for so long it was nice to finally relax. I am taking to this lifestyle like a duck to water.

Re: Renegade Sailing Adventures.

Well back in the saddle again, leaving here with a bit of a heavy heart for having met so many great people so fast and having the time be so short, yet at the same time I have such a new found sense of optimism that I am excited to make this dream happen and I know that means a lot of hard work.

And Newhaul, I wanted to specifically say thank you for doing so much behind the scenes to make this happen. Having this boat in my life has already brought me an incredible amount of joy and happiness.

I have a real goal to chase after now and that is when I do the best!

So THANK YOU!

I did shoot a bunch of video, not sure when I will get to edit it yet.

Re: Renegade Sailing Adventures.

Today has been one of those days, I got unloaded yesterday, drove to Coeur D' Alene in anticipation of getting my next load but they have not released the machine because the customer has not paid for it. So here I sit until tomorrow!

At this rate it is going to be a hard push to make Georgia by Monday next week. I hope they can load me early in the morning tomorrow so I can get out of here and get running!

In the mean time I am sitting here editing the video I shot over the weekend on the boat.

Re: Renegade Sailing Adventures.

Actually its not sacrilege to not be a super fan of jimmy however the reason most like his music is he really tells a story at the rythum of the sailing life. You will grow to like him a bit more
