Why is it that I need 5000 sq feet of suburban house to live with you on land and only 32 feet LOA to live with you on water?.... This Comment is addrerssed to everyone. Its just me musing... but I was Just Wondering.... Why does it take 5000 sq feet of suburban home to live with you on land and only 32' LOA to live with you on the water? Why is the food more delicious, the wine more intoxicating, and the glances more sensual? Is it the simplicity that allows us to once again feel like those first days when we were preoccupied with only each other? Why does a V-berth offer more comfort, security and restful sleep than our California King? My mind soars with thoughts of you and I as we drift through dreams of oceans conquered together. The only reality consists of two pennants and a mooring keeping us anchored to this earth.

We are! We opted to stay with the original Galley-maid oven that uses alcohol! I'm so terrified of propane because my last boat had an LPG explosion aboard before we purchased her. After hiking the Appalachian Trail this year, I became more comfortable with alcohol. So, we are going to give this a go! Tonight, chicken ( instead of turkey) stone crab, and yellowfin Tuna....and of course all the trimmings! I hope you have a fabulous feast as well! THis will be my second fully cooked Thanksgiving aboard, and there is nothing quite like it, especially while living on the hook. I hope we get to meet you sometime, as well. We're leaving the country in a few months, so maybe it will be in some far away port....I can smell the spices from here....no wait! That's dinner! Time to eat! Have a great night, Ray.

Ray, Hi, and thanks for reading the blog. To answer your question, I am on a 32 Endeavor class sloop. Shes an older girl, but I chose her specifically for her heavily laid hull. Im old school, in thinking these early Fiberglass hulls make the best cruisers. This is my first Endeavor and so far I am a big fan. Shes getting some solar panels and a wind gen before departure. I also am going to have to update the electronics a bit. Any suggestions? Are SSB radios still widely used or are Gsat phones taking over? My last cruise was 2004, so I know some of the finer details have changed. The rest of the boat is functional and aesthetically pleasing, though I probably will not spit-shine her, do to the fact that I like to travel under the radar. A really bright shiny boat is just asking to get boarded in lower latitudes... Whats your story? You alluded to some trips south... Whats your berth? Favorite anchorages? Etc... Id love to exchange ideas. :) RNGypsy03 PS I hope youll stay with us here on the blog, and thanks again for posting!

Dear New Jordans, That was very profound, and of course true, although I would add we can also deceive each other. But, those are human problems, and this pack of canines, fortunately, do not have to worry about these things. :). They live in the moment, accepting each new thing as it is presented. They may not like the new thing, but they do deal with it in the here and now. A respectable quality. RNGypsy03
