    Neil and Gail, its an inspiration that you have turned this decidedly “on-the-nose” weather into a wonderful opportunity to reflect on distant and recent memories in such a wonderfully positive manner. We enjoy your yin and yang perspectives, not to mention the beautiful photos. Surely a lesson to all of us stuck swinging on the hook juggling the go, no go decision. Looking forward to further updates and wondering why you dont just do the short hop to anywhere Bretagne in that Sunday Monday window, assuming the forecast pans out….? your friends in Mongolia !

    You are doing the right thing-you have time (as a true cruiser) to wait for the weather, even if it takes a while.

    It’s been said many times before.

    You have been and continue to be inspirational. You’ve shown us dreamers and aspirers that persistance, determination and always moving forward, however slowly it seems at the time will eventually get us to our dream destination.

    I hope I have even half of those qualities when the peices of my life fall into the place that makes this dream even possible.

    I hope I get to meet you and Gleda soon. We used to sail our Silhouette not far from there (Loe Beach) when I was a kid.

    Good luck Neil, wait for your moment and it will come.

    Looks to me like you have arrived. What a sweet spot to be holed up. No need to covet some other place. I’d say you are living the dream!

    Yes, just relax. You can pass the field later, they are going not that fast at the moment: 🙂

    Neil-
    I’m glad to be back here reading your posts after a forced hiatus. My wife recently passed due to an undiscovered brain aneurism, and it lifts my spirits to read of your adventures continuing. It gives me hope, even in the hours that I seem to have little, that the dream is not only out there, but attainable. One day, I hope to follow in your inspirational footsteps, even without my most loved first mate. Godspeed and safe journeys!

    Spencer, I don’t really have any words to express my thoughts of your loss. If in some tiny way my writing has helped you I’m glad. All I can say with certainty is that the clouds will lift, not tomorrow, maybe not for a while, but believe that the sun will shine again and it will.
