About:
I am setting out on a quest for experience, knowledge, and love. Experience and knowledge are gained simply by doing and paying attention to what you see and feel.

Test 1

This is a test of the remote processor. If all goes well, this message will appear in my weblog very shortly.

Still waiting

Still waiting for the solar panels and SSB radio to come in. Did get to convert all of my lights over to led, this means I should be able to live with refrigeration and not need to run the engine to charge te batteries. I also used my waiting time to explore the area, and found a great source for marine [...]

Getting ready for the Journey

After a party at my house I headed south bound for Green Cove Springs, FL, loaded with plenty of booze and party food. A ten hour drive turned into 15 hours because of an ice storm that swept across the country. I missed the storm but saw all of the aftermath, cars and traffic all mangled up all along [...]

The boat is mine

Took another trip down to FL to purchase the boat. Stayed down all week to go through the inventory and organize the way I want. There is a lot stuff on here. Good stuff. Safety stuff, fun stuff. The weather was cold all week long, so much for a 'vacation' to FL.

Unite 2010!

This is the day that the "Strong 6", "Big 6", "Super 6", or any of the other names that we have been called reunited. Who are we? A group of friends that all met at the University of Delaware and stayed close and are made up of the best friends I have ever had. One of those friends passed on entirely [...]

'Give God a chance'

This was the first day I was to step aboard the future Ryan's Bell. She was on a mooring in Green Cove Springs Marina, which is located on the St. Johns river just south of Jacksonville, FL. Steve Parks was rowing the dinghy over to the dock. He waved, then we met and introduced ourselves to one another [...]

This is the day that the "Strong 6", "Big 6", "Super 6", or any of the other names that we have been called reunited. Who are we? A group of friends that all met at the University of Delaware and stayed close and are made up of the best friends I have ever had. One of those friends passed on entirely too early! He is our dear friend Ryan Bell, "Blondie", "The Big Galoot", and all of the other names his explosive personality earned. So on this day we allowed all of our busy lives to align and celebrate our friendship and the time and memories we had with Ryan.

Now I think it would make for better public opinion of us to say that we took in all of the history and culture that Fells Point had to offer. We didn't, but we did celebrate. So here I was, recently accepted offer on a boat named "God's Gift" with no new name calling out to me, in one of my favorite towns, and celebrating friendship. The new name was right in front of me calling out to me, Ryan's Bell. The inherent nautical feel, the joy the name brings, and a new meaning, celebrating friendship, and what's friendship but another name for love. So using a friend's favorite mathematical property, the transitive property, if Ryan Bell equals friendship, and friendship equals love, then love must Ryan Bell. And that he did and his name still does, so let this boat be a symbol of friendship and love in the memory of Ryan Bell. Fairwinds and following seas to Ryan's Bell
