gearinup - You should definitely continue this thread but you should also PM Nicolle. She and Mark are somewhere between galapagos
and the solomons(?) or Tahiti(?) I forget.
Nicolle followed Mark to the Carribean, picked up the boat with hiim and has already sailed the Panama canal
and beyond. IIRC she was at about the same state as you are when we first heard from her.
And (from a guys perspective) ports
of call definitely do not have to be a side show, drunk fest with everyone dropping thier tops and pants. I would actually say that is the exception rther than the rule
