    You guys managed to pull it off, congratulations I didn’t know that you had left maine until Virginia showed up at my house in Colorado and showed me this blog. You also managed to recuit the st. jean machine nice work. Have fun in the intercoastal, when you get to beaufort check out the boathouse and the backstreet tavern. I’ll be keeping an eye on you guys and I might have to catch a flight down to st. thomas when you guys get there. Good luck and remember to always in the words of ed rogers, CHECK THE OUTHAUL.

    What a crew of catches (where are the women?)!!! Have a blast you guys…but aren’t you missing the Maine winter? (JK..) but here in Burlington VT we’ve gotten about 40 inches in the last week, and it is scheduled to keep coming down! I say bring it. The mountains are white wonderlands where I am renewed…
    Stay safe. (ps_the blog would be helped to have a map or at least written location each new entry.. it’s a little hard to tell where you guys are..)
    Peace,
    Jorie

    Hey John, and to think I was sitting here with my red wine excited to go out and shovel on a peaceful, snowy, Maine night……

    Have a blast (no need to say that huh) and stay safe. Happy Travels!

    It is Boxing Day today and I am having fun wandering through your blog. Merry Christmas to Team Audax and Happy New Year. Sounds like you are having a great adventure. John when you return, come to Heron Park. My rent-a-husband has turned my land into a park. I am looking for a park bench or two where we can enjoy our promised cup of coffee. Love, Starsky

    Be sure to use your black dock lines when you reach Puerto Rico as the cockroaches there are very large and hairy.

    take special care of jordi during the remainder of the trip. i’ve still not gotten him to try one of my infamous ‘blackout punches.’ and jordi, if the whole sailing the seven sea’s thing doesn’t work out for you, i’ll be sure to pick-up an extra copy of mao’s little red book for you while i’m in china. you can always become a communist. (myself, i prefer to be called a socialist). be good and stay safe. you guys are always welcome on st. john, and certainly at the quiet mon pub. slainte!

    This looks like a blast! The ski season is pretty much over and now I don’t know what to do.

  • 16 Ms. Kate // Jun 10, 2008 at 1:14 pm

    As if I didn’t want to be a pirate bad enough already… I now have further motivation.
    AMAZING pics- and even more amazing reality. Talk about living the dream…
