A mailing list!

I find myself depending quite a bit on email notifications for blogs, since I never bothered trying to find an alternative to Google Reader, and haven’t yet configured the news functionality of Calibre (which uses recipes to compile all RSS feeds into an ebook on a regular basis, essentially a custom newspaper). To that end, …

Todo list – Attempt #7

What this post was supposed to be… Let’s start at the basics. I over-complicate things. For example, I already know that due to Season 1 of the Sailing Stories podcast (which was their own audio adaptation of Brave Or Stupid, by Tracey Christiansen, Carl Andersson, Yanne Larsson), our living document will be called “The Effin’ …

Boat Life is busy life

I just realized that the last actual post I wrote was way back in October. The last update was that I got a job to support us, and the better half followed me out. She made it here just in time for Halloween. There hasn’t been much happening since, right? I mean, 2020 seems like …

Inspiring stuff

They say that no man is an island, and all that. I think I’ve actually written multiple blog posts with that exact title, discussing the exact same thing. This is a bit more specific, and I am actually not doing this particular blog alone, so hopefully I’ll stick with it, and this will be the …

Jumping in

The idea has been bouncing around my brain on and off for a very long time. I couldn’t tell you why. I don’t remember touching a boat in California or Michigan. I remember spending a day in Colorado on a 22 foot boat on a lake or reservoir (I swear is was Chatfield, but I …
