Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

hay guys--you know that weds i am going to leave marina for anchoring again, now summer is done , and no more named furies will venture upon our cooling oceans, and the atmospheric workings are returning to winter state---from there, the following monday, we head out first to incommunicado land(punta de mita) to work out the last of the lil things to do before sailing south--then we will head to barra de navidad for an overnite and fill water for drinking--and for some other lil stuff---fuel....lol--by then we may need 30 gal--now is only 20, so we will wait a bit...we will have more fuel for last phase by doing this....then stop somewhere else then somewhere else--then zihuat---should be interesting with calamity james on board helping with watch and in case of breakage..lol.....

so,if you guys dont hear from me for a few days is ok--if you hear ABOUT me, please pray...lol for bubba...

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

ok here it is----received a radio call last night--from a different friend--i had heard him calling his wife, and without answer. (her friends are here from sf-is a good thing--) he called me . asked me to come over. i went -- i found him lying on floor/cabin sole, in his ct54, and learned why he was calling, got him ready for incoming strangers, and sent him to hospital seemingly suffering a stroke---with a twist--he had pain. hhhmmm.....
so, i went to find his lady and i told her we sent him to hospital. she had her radio with her. she called me just a bit ago from her boat--she told me he was in ct scan when they watched as his aneurysm ruptured and they fetched her into the room so she could be with him as he passed....this isnt spozed to happen when cruising. i am glad i found her---i was going to wait until am, but something made me find and tell her and she was with him. that was good. rip, friend. watch over your lady.
guys--live and enjoy--it is over too soon--man was exactly my age, and full of life. he found his soulmate, and went cruising with her.
celebrate life.


this could well postpone for a bit my trip--i promised her i would wait until i know what she is going to do. so--i will be onm y way in a few weeks, i think. after she figgers out her new life. not the way to be cruising, not the plans they shared.
zihuat is going no where--i can stay here a bit to help her.

Wow Zee - that is a very sad story. Good that they were together at the end, but still so sad. Yes, we need to live now, for the end could come any time, and will come all too soon.

wow Zee. Rough stuff.

Other than the involvement of the boat this is exactly how my first mentor went. Headache, lay on the couch, worse headache, call the bus, get to hospital, blow a cylinder, gone...

I got to help the 3 ex-wives and girlfriends fight over the stuff left behind.

My guy lived every day to the fullest and I am sure had no regrets. There are worse ways to go...

Really nice of you Zee.
Support is so vital when someone close to you dies.
As Ex-Calif said, there are worst ways to go though, the tough bit in these circumstances is for those left behind.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

One can go far with a little sophistry in this world!

The lack of decent rum in these parts has seen me retreat to my No.1 fallback position: Single Malt Scotch. Ok, it's only Glenfiddich 12yo, not my beloved Talisker, but it's better than Pott 54% "Rum", or Stroh "Rum" at 80%.

The DiY still appeals for a number of reasons; one secondary use is making one's own ethanol from kitchen waste, for use in alcohol stove/heater. My Italian buddies in Aus make their own Grappa; I found that hitting myself on the head with a hammer had pretty much the same effect as drinking it but without the nasty aftertaste.
