Hello all from San Carlos Mx

I'm miller adams with a steel roberts 38 in san carlos mexico.... started this journey in the Philippines where as a 17 yr old I had to take a launch ride across Manila bay to get to the embassy and then a 20 min taxi ride to the american School. I discovered that when the monsoons kicked in was when i loved taking that launch ride.. .fast forward to 1967 and a WWII class destroyer that took me through the Med, suez canal and Red Sea down to Madagascar and back to Newport. countless hours on the fantail just looking at the horizon... continued to feed my nautical soul. But the game changer was a 1973 stint on Ascension Island, an absolutely boring place to be; 700 men and 6 British nurses (in 3 months never actually saw any nurses). One day an australian named Laurie Piper showed up in a 26' SCOD (south coast one design), he had left land of Oz with $75. I signed on board, abruptly left my job and sailed 2600 miles to Fortaleza Brazil. Changed my life. all I wanted to do was sail oceans.

Whew .. .after many years of houses, wives, kids, jobs to pay for it all, i'm close to dropping the lines and heading out in Mar '19 with the Pacific Puddle jump party to the Marquesas ...

Happy to have rejoined this forum

Hey Miller - welcome to CF!

I liked your story - it sounds like you'll have a lot to add here -
It's what you learn after you know it all that counts...
