On the road, Boynton Beach, FL
High of 67

At the request of a few readers, I've decided to update the blog a little more often, even if I don't have a full blown story or adventure to share. Instead of giving a unique headline or chapter title, I will just start calling such entries "Daily Notes."

For the last few days I've been in Homestead, teaching an OSHA safety course.  Tonight I sit in the Hampton Inn, Boynton Beach, ready to teach a first aid/cpr class on Friday.  After that, I'm homeward bound for the weekend.

My wife and step-son spent the day on Gasparilla Island, enjoying the beach.  Afterward, they drove to Punta Gorda and Fishermen's Village.  Sean has enjoyed his visit from Arizona but he heads for home on Saturday.  My oldest son, Ryan (26), arrives next Thursday.  My oldest daughter turned 24 today.  Happy birthday, Kimber.

There's been an explosion of new readers to the blog lately, thanks to some exposure I received on and  I will do my best not to disappoint.  I recommend everyone browse the archieves on the the right side of this page and pick a chapter title that catches your eye, in order to catch up on some past adventures if I'm too busy working a real job to write new and interesting stories in the present.  One of my personal favorites is from May, 2008, when I brought my current boat home for the first time.  See "The Prince of Tides...or....The Bridges of Charlotte County."

If you wish to comment on the blog, at the bottom of the page you can click on "post a comment" to open a window and leave your comment.  If you wish to send the blog chapter to a friend, click on the envelope with the arrow.  I'm happy to have each and every new reader and I hope you enjoy the blog.

Okay son, I've caught up on your blogs. Very interesting and well-written (if I may say so); however, William, I did notice a tad bit of sloppiness in grammar usage. I'll soon need a nautical dictionary in order to totally enjoy and comprehend your sailing accounts. Keep up the blogs, much more interesting than fb!
Much love, Mom
