Land locked....

Home for 5 weeks and starting to feel the pressure..... I said that I wasn't going to sail anymore this year until next year's World Voyage in January 2011. Funny how being home for a while changes things.. I am still thinking road trips around the USA & Canada but I am also looking at going back on ships... I have no will power, perhaps it's an addiction. I think perhaps it is running away from the "Real World" and going back to my fantasy life. I am looking at several alternatives which mainly go back to my beach bum days and start sailing around the Caribbean for 2 to 3 months before the World Voyage.... Once I start looking at possibilities, generally speaking, I do it. We'll see what happens in the coming weeks. As a side note, I finished creating a book for the 2010 World Voyage... can't wait to get it from the publisher. Enough for now, tomorrow is going to be a hot, sunny day and I need to rest up for the arduous task of sitting in my lounge chair, drinking diet coke, listening to music and reading while I bake... tough life!

Hi Jeff!

Great to hear the update. Whichever you choose to do, I hope you enjoy it and have fun! You can maybe do a combination of all 3 options- land travels, beach bum, and go out to the wide yonders of the ocean!

About the book, are you using MyPublisher? They do quite a nice job. Any way that we can see the book digitally or anything?

Take care!

I just happened by and saw your post. If cruising is an addiction it's a good addiction. I would imaging you went through withdrawal. I mean you were basically sailing from last July through April. It is hard for me to return to the real world after a couple of weeks. I can't imagine ever adjusting after several months. Can't wait to hear what is up next for you. Have a safe summer.

Hi Jeff,
Sounds like a fun summer no matter what you do or where you go.

Please keep your followers informed about your book.

Walk on the sunny side of the street,

June
