Welcome to the forum Tim...I sailed into Guam in the late 70s and was a live aboard in Apra harbor for a couple seasons.
Good times.

Saucy: Where is Guam? Micronesia. 1200nm east of the Philippines, SSE of Japan. US Territory.

Tim: Thanks for the YC tip. I'll visit.
Mark: I PM'd you.

Guam is where America's Day Begins, it's a time zone thing.

Guam is where Jack and Kate and the rest of the LOST crew were headed for when they crashed back on THE ISLAND in the last season of that series.Guam, like the island on LOST, also moves,but as far as I know hasnt disapeared.and is highly unlikely to tip over under the weight of the contingent of Marines relocating from Okinawa,as was reported in Congress to be the concern of our statesman from Georgia.Guam sits at the southern end of the Marianas Islands.13 N 144 E.

Hi Tim,
I grew up on Guam and actually went back in 1991 to UOG to do some Marine Biology. I am now in the process of trying to sail to Guam--after some lessons and buying a boat, a few minor details like that.

Hi, I'm assuming you're Chris,

How are you? It's been awhile. I am so glad you e-mailed me. I am in San Jose. Are you still working at the Marine Lab? Thanks for the info on Butch Irish. Let me know if you get a handle on where he is. If you have a moment to catch up, it would be nice.

Cathy
