Pay Your Bill and be a Karen

Admittedly I don’t like Bills. Let’s be honest…who does? And NOBODY like a Karen. And then there’s these two. We met this awesome couple about a decade ago back while I was learning the lines and beer can racing on Lake Lanier. We were all crew together for a season, then turned competitors. They alsoContinue reading “Pay Your Bill and be a Karen”

Django for President

Bark woof yelp, woof woof, woof bark bark woof….oops…. Likely easier to hear the story from me rather than Django himself.  I’m paraphrasing so work with me… “My Cam” had to spend a few days away from me recently. He must have been curing cancer or fighting the Ruskies in the Ukraine ’cause otherwise heContinue reading “Django for President”

OX

That’s what the sticker says. You know, the white oval ones with the black trim and black letters? The ones strategically place on your rear car windows.  Oxford, Maryland that is. Steeped in deep history and sorta right out of a historical fairytale. We recently traveled northward up the Chesapeake Bay approximately 35 miles fromContinue reading “OX”

Tangier

I’ve traveled. I’ve been a few places and I’ve seen a few things. Whether it be Europe, Mexico, Canada, the Bahamas or elsewhere,  I’ve seen, you know, stuff. But I’ve never seen anything like Tangier, Virginia. Maybe something similar in Europe but never here in these United States. This amazing tiny island holds about 450Continue reading “Tangier”

Port Charles in Charge

We made it…so far. When we pulled out of Tarpon Springs our focus was safety, seafood, sailing, and apparently other things that start with an “S”.  The end goal on this trip for 2022 was to revist the Annapolis sailboat show we first experienced already a decade ago.  It’s nearly now the end of AugustContinue reading “Port Charles in Charge”

Holy Ship Norfolk!!

When Americans build a boat…they build a freakin’ boat!!! After our departure from the free dock in Chesapeake, VA we passed through a bascule bridge and were quickly crammed into a river lock that nearly held one 100 foot cargo barge, two power boats, and three sailboats. Ever been on a really crowded elevator andContinue reading “Holy Ship Norfolk!!”

Buying Friends

After a few monotonous days in the ICW, we took advantage of a free dock in Chesapeake, Virginia. We had been somewhat traveling with not one, but two new boat mate friends. The first a nice couple heading back to Norfolk with their new to them Prestige 500. The second couple are on a 36′Continue reading “Buying Friends”

“I’m a Thousand Miles From Nowhere”

Remember Dwight Yoakum?  The other day we chugged 50+ miles up the Pungo ( that’s fun to say) River which eventually turned into the Alligator River. I say chugged because we had a 15-20 knot headwind which reved up the diesel to about 2800 RPMs.  After a late start we finally tied up at theContinue reading ““I’m a Thousand Miles From Nowhere””

Beaufort (part 2)

While in Beaufort, I took the opportunity to explore the Rachel Carson Preserve. While crossing the heavy traffic of the Taylor River felt a little like playing trigger on a paddle board, it was well worth it! On these types of explorations, I typically bring a small garbage bag to collect the trash of theContinue reading “Beaufort (part 2)”
