All of the waterways are blocked off for oil containment,

so we took a road trip in the car to show everybody

what goes on in Venice and what the Louisiana coastline

looks like.



I apologize that we're not on a sailboat, but a 24ft S2

has been loaned to me for use while I'm in the South!

More sailing videos coming soon!

Gee, fellas, nice little road trip. I thought there'd be pictures of oil contaminating the Gulf, but I guess not.

I hope your next videos will be a bit more informative about the oil spill.

I'd be interested in knowing how many of the commercial fishing boats are now helping with the oil spill. I'd be interested in seeing more of the oil and its effects on the shore. Maybe a little more geography to show people how far away from New Orleans this all is, so maybe the tourists will come back to N.O. It would also be nice if you showed all the beautiful beaches in Florida that haven't seen more than a little tar ball occasionally. And the booms that are doing a pretty decent job (so far, admittedly) of keeping oil out of lots of the Gulf coastline, espeicially where the tourists should be going but aren't because they think there's too much oil everywhere in the entire Gulf of Mexico.

Those would be helpful videos. Those would help the beleaguered and financially strapped residents and business owners down there.

Think you can help people out there, dudes?
