Keep the great RR coming!

Hero I've been reading ride reports here since 2002. Most are painful to me for some reason. Yours has been a pleasure. Godspeed from a fellow solo traveler. I've traveled all of N & S America solo over 70,000 miles. I relish the solitude. I would write a ride report but it'd be one of the painful ones.

Hardly never told. I met Robin Knox-Johnson in a crowd of others of similar interests. We didn't need the story told or understand the proable motivation for leaving the race.

Robin told anecdotes about his solo adventures which raised my hair then and caused me to reflect when later, I did a good deal of singlehanding. i still have difficulty in believing one of his tales but he seemed sincere to me.

It's great to see NOLA back in action. It also amazes me to see posts from people offering their house to stay. There truly is hope left in this world.

Ask 20 people on the street (in America) who Bernard Moitessier is. Hell ask a hundred. The voyaging by sail community is very small. Yeah a group glad handing Robin Johnston is going to know Moitessier but five thousand kids wearing baggy pants and ball caps won't.

Kids wearing baggy pants and flat brimmed ball caps know nothing about anything. So what else is new?

Seriously, you'd not expect any but the sailing community to know either or that Slocum piloted Spray around the world or many other things specific to the community.

I can't tell you who won the superbowl in any year or who won the world series or the world cup or any other cup and don't consider myself worse for the ignorance.

AntiHero, Hope you are doing well out there.
Seem to have slowed down a tad, with the RR.
How are you doing yourself?
Getting home sick? Burned out?
Ready to do it all over again?
How would you rate this in your life experiences?
Loose weight or gained weight, for better or worse?
You have a workout you do?

Sazerac

I have a long-term goal to go back to NOLA for a Sazerac. One of my favorite drinks ever and the ultimate test of greatness for a cocktail bar.

[QUOTE=AntiHero;20156897]
This dude from Pensacola (slomo510, Richard Sullivan) rode all the way out to NOLA to hang out with me on the Sunday of the Austin F1 (you can see how far behind I am!). We found a killer spot (Killer Poboys) away from the thunderous chants of "who dat, who dat," where we could watch the race in peace. Appreciated him making the drive out and back--and it was great to have someone to knock a couple back with over lunch and dinner. He's the Sales Manager at BMW Motorcycles of Pensacola. If I was ever in the market for a new bike I wouldn't hesitate hitting him up--he's a great guy.


[QUOTE]

I met Richard a few months ago when I was BMW shopping and came within a few hours of buying my dream bike from him. He sold it right before I was leaving for Pensacola and he was nice enough to call me and warn me he had a buyer on the way. I drove down anyway (3 hours) just to meet him and see what else he had around. I agree 100% with you that he is a stand up guy.
