It's a rare treat to have both time to write and a good internet connection with which to post on our blog. Thanks to the hospitality of our host, Alex, we have been blessed this combination, allowing me to play catchup a bit. To begin, Rebecca has been interviewed a couple of times recently and the first of pieces has now made its way online. In the interview, she shares her thoughts about traveling by both sailboat and by bike,…

monumental

Today is the final day of my 50th year on this planet. For months now I've had an urge to do something special before I turned 51, something epic. Perhaps this is what people refer to as a midlife crisis, I don't know. I don't think that I'm in any particular state of crisis, but I do often feel as if I have yet to achieve anything particularly monumental, something befitting such a significant landmark as half a century.

Shoal Survivor

When our PDQ 32 was put up for sale, it was pretty easy for prospective purchasers to visualize what they'd be getting. I had, after all, blogged about every single facet of that boat since the day that we took possession of her. As it so happens, our friend Drew, another avid blogger (who I have linked to dozens of times), and regular contributor to Practical Sailor and other nautical magazines, has just listed his PDQ 32/34 for sale. I'm…

Although it takes some time and effort to shoot it all, we know that it'll be a great reminder for us when we've completed the section. And to be completely honest, it also gives us a nice excuse for a rest. :) Although our intent was not to publish any of the footage until we had completed the entire…

35

35. That was the magic number yesterday. 35 steps and then rest. 35 five steps and then rest. That was how we made it to the top of Otay Mountain. When we weren't counting steps, we were playing other mind games like push the bike to the next post, or to the second bush, or to the corner. I'm not embarrassed to say it: we pushed the bikes 90% of the way up the mountain. One day maybe I'll be…

heart

It breaks my heart to post this but for those who missed the opportunity to purchase our PDQ 32 the first time she was listed for sale, here is one more chance. With much regret, due to a terminal health issue, we must put her up for sale. In May of 2017, Forever was in Martinique when one of the owners developed severe health issues and had to be flown back to the states. Forever returned to Grenada, was placed…
