You know what real torture is? Looking at a smooth flat body of water
for 7 months, with a beautiful northwest wind
that never gets below 10 knots its seems and not being able to sail on it!
Where is this inland sailing paradise you ask? Lake Habbaniya, right here in good ol' Iraq. Within easy travel distance of the cradle
of civilization, local shopping
and roadside bombs, Of course you would have to dodge the dead animals
floating by, random terrorists and an occasional sand storm but hey, it would be adventure.
Seriously though, if we ever get this place straightened up it will be a great place for a resort!
