Short story made long: GrandPa built Monterey Trawlers out of Moss Landing, CA. Dad never hardly got his feet wet as Mom was afraid of the water, as in never had a bath afraid.

I grew up sailing Monterey Bay, crewing on Mercury Class SB, sailed dingys around Monterey Marina, even sailed a Kool Styrofoam SB from Carmel Bay to Stillwater Cove.

Had an urge to "Head West" so I traveled East to Wyoming to learn to Cowboy.

Thirty years later I am running a cattle operation just S. of Sacramento, not far from The Delta.

Starting over, taking a Basic Sailing Course from Sacramento State this Summer, then moving on to Keel Boats in the Fall.

Reading whatever I can, whenever I can, Wife and I have the beginnings of a plan to retire with water beneath us, someday, somewhere.

Permission to come aboard?

I run a Custom Stocker Operation. We only take in 2 y/o Maiden Heifers (Virgin Girl Cows) for 6 to 8 months, put 100 to 150lbs on their frame, and then sell them off to larger operations as Breeding Stock. They can look forward to a long and enjoyable life having babies. Having a baby very year for the next 8-12 (avg) years is their only reason to live.

Than they go to McDonalds.

Open Range, round-ups, brandings, barb wire fence, the whole kitten kabutal.

I am enjoying this site immensely. Thanks.
