So far outside the box you can't even see the box from here.

There we were, sailing out in the Gulf, pretty far down the coast. This power boat motored over to talk to me. I heaved to. One of his boys tossed me a bowline, and I asked what was up. He was lost. He left from a boat launch he never used before, and forgot to enter a GPS waypoint.
He wanted to know how to get to Baypoint. Of all the questions he could have asked me, that was the one I knew for certain. I lent him my chart so he could enter the GPS coordinates. I told him the exact distance to the channel, the compass heading and what to look for along the way. I've been sailing out of Baypoint for over a month.
The poor guy had asked directions from someone further up the coast. Unfortunately, he'd gotten bad directions -south instead of north.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
