Default Sailing on the land

I love to sail. My other love is riding motorcycles, something which is not uncommon within the sailing community. In the past couple of years I have been alternately riding through South East Asia and sailing on the Sea of Cortez.

I arrived in the US a month ago and I am currently spending time in Tennessee and North Carolina. For those with knowledge of the area, I have ridden the Cherohala Skyway/Dragon's Tail/Deal's Gap loop and then the Blue Ridge Parkway. One episode of heavy snow forced us to forego much more riding for the moment...the forecast for next Sunday is a beaut: Snow and a top temp of 36f with a low of 19f (in a sensible scale that's +2c to -7c....and that's plurry cold!

We may head for Miami soon to escape the worst of the winter weather. Sailing out of Marsh Harbour in the Abacos is a distinct possibility. Then if we need to go closer to the equator, there is San Carlos, where my boat is on the hard stand.

Guess what. America has finally learned how to make decent coffee, and the standard very delicious hamburger will feed four hungry foreigners. Amazing.
Cheers.
