Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Oceanfrontmom, sounds like you should just keep doing what your doing. Can't go cruising tho' in an 18' bayliner, but wtf, there's a lot of gorgeous coast where you're hanging out. Must be a gene demanding ocean interaction is all I can figure. Welcome!

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Welcome Oceanfront Mom. I live about 8 hours or so from you, between Spokane and Tri-Cities. I hear you on not waiting for a man to appear to do what you love. I have been doing that most of my life. Kudos to you!

On a totally unrelated and selfishly promoting myself plug. I got my thistle in the water, with crew mind you, and we had a very successful race day. Refusing to come in last we almost made it to first place, sliding in to second at least once. Color us a happy crew.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Thank you thank you Zee and Capttman. I am very proud of myself considering I am very new at sailing, have never owned a boat before, and just got her in the water for the first time last September. (Still patting myself on the back, LOL)

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Hi. Wow. So cool that this group is still here. I signed up about a year ago, got caught up with work and city life; and completely forgot about this site. Just gave it all up and moved back to Florida (Melbourne Beach area) for a more simple life. Happy to be back by the beach. Hello all!

-Just a newbie who wants to learn about the cruising and sailing lifestyle.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Home schooled kids are almost always several years ahead of their public and private school peers. I'm a big advocate of home schooling and what better place to learn about the world than from a boat that is actually out there seeing it? I rest my case!
