Guns and grub



Some days you never know where you are going to end up. I connected with my buddy in the Punta Gorda area. He'd planned on going to a gun and knife show, and asked if I wanted to go along. Sure, why not? After all, who knows how long they will be allowed to go on?

So we checked out the gun and knife show. I'm always willing to look at interesting guns. Did I buy anything? Heck now. I'm on a boat. Where the heck am I going to put stuff -especially valuable metal things that rust. Actually, I pretty much have what I want for guns. There are a few pieces that I wouldn't mind having in my collection, for the right price. Nobody had anything that interested me at any price.

I wouldn't mind having a Mossberg Mariner, but I can wait until I get back to New Hampshire. It's the land of no sales tax.

My buddy also gave me a lift to Publix, so I had a chance to stock up our supplies. This is a great marina, but the grocery store is just far enough away to be a long walk. Much better to have a ride, then I don't mind buying heavy things.

We've got to figure out if we will try and stay another day or if we will head out. Our plan is to go back to the bayou anchorage for a bit. There we will do some more work on the boat while waiting for favorable winds.

  1. What is so nice about not having a tight schedule, you can go or stay, which ever you feel like doing at the time. Who wouldn't want to be a gypsy or vagabond.

    1. More people could do it if they really wanted to. Most people don't like to step outside their comfort zone.

  2. No pirates around so no gun necessary for now.

  3. I watched "All is lost" last night on DVD. I thought of you folks. Hope nothing like that happens on your trip!

    1. Haven't seen it. In fact, I made a point to not see it, especially with the lovely wife.
