  1. This was Sailorman's second EC. He got to CP1 last year, then DNFd. http://www.watertribe.com/Events/ChallengeResults.aspx
  2. Was headed for Harbor Springs to visit the Farmer's Market Saturday morning and my first sight of LTB put a big grin on my face. Was a spectacular sight. Awesome sailing, awesome weather and a fabulous small town. Returned on Sunday to watch. So glad everyone had such a great time.
  3. Isn't this the second boat he's abandoned? The guy is a litterbug as well as a fraud.
  4. Do you really believe him? I don't. His tracker is his only method of proclaiming his expertise as a record-breaking world renowned sailor. How else can he prove he succeeded at the "most ambitious voyage in the American history"? Rimas is a lazy fraud looking for more freebies.
  5. The response: So I guess the subscription is still good but Rimas has it switched off. Or something. He probably didn't turn it on because he didn't want to admit being towed. Again.
  6. iIRC, the phone was provided by either Jean or Shannon. They likely cancelled it when Rimas left AS. No DeLorme is interesting... Perhaps Jean and Shannon have become fed up with Rimas's gritting? Thought I read somewhere up in this thread that the intrepid sailor now has a Spot. When I look at the DeLorme, it reads Shannon Buys.
  7. Any way to determine when and where was the picture taken? Since he announced his $200 windfall shortly after meeting with Dr.Wagner, Shannon's friend, am betting that's where the money came from - not from new and admiring donors.
  8. Leua Frost is a woman. https://www.linkedin.com/pub/leua-aiono-frost/40/ba3/bb9 Rims needs no food shipments. Shannon sent him mashed potatoes via personal delivery. Check out Ms. Frost's FB page and you'll see some photos of our spiffy hero.
  9. Set the filter to all time. That will bring up his track and last posting (12/24) from the dock.
  10. That account was set up over a year ago and the $1,900 reflects only the amounts contributed by the enablers since its inception, not the current balance. I think Shannon set up the account when the Great Mariner was still in Hawaii and in need of repairs and provisioning. Is there actually $1,900 available for the entitled one's current wants? Your guess is as good as mine.
  11. Drifting the longest distance is more like it. I prefer the record of the 67-year old Polish guy who, as Rimas was drifting towards SF in April 2014, completed a 7,716-mile transatlantic journey in a 23-foot kayak. And he didn't have to be towed to shore. http://adventure.nationalgeographic.com/adventure/adventurers-of-the-year/2015/aleksander-doba/
  12. Interesting. He's back on the boat. Guess his three-day stay with the Samoan family is over.
  13. Well, our intrepid adventurer is safely ensconced with a generous family for three days. Maybe he will decorate his mast for Christmas?
  14. Only Rimas knows whether he has earned 40 credits. Jean seems to think so given his comments that Rimas will start receiving SS benefits next month and will then be able to buy his own motor for the boat. Hopefully Rimas applied before he left SF, as such benefits are not automatic.
  15. Depends on year of birth. Normal age is 65 and taking benefits early reduces the benefit. http://www.socialsecurity.gov/retire2/agereduction.htm According to the FB article, he worked for a time as a security guard in NY and then as an interpreter in Guam. Doesn't appear he has held any long term employment, thus his monthly stipend will be minimal. Imagine he could find employment in American Samoa if he wished. But am guessing he would rather live off the abilities of others.
