Couple Cruise for 1000 Days


Recommended Posts

seamadness, I know you are not that naive! She is mooching, no matter how you look at it!

 

I am quite confident that as more information comes forward, it will in fact prove she is mooching. I would put money on it. But, what I am saying is that all we have so far is a little information here and there. Until there is proof, I do not want to bash her character for something like this. For anything else that we have proof of, I am fine with hacking her off at the knees.

 

I 100% agree with luna's statement about her actions and words after being rescued. She did not mention home, family, gravely ill... She immediately munches on a ham and cheese while on another boat! Hell no she was not sick. Everything she is doing is probably for the book. She would be a fool to leave before she has to as this is the most interesting part of HER story! Yeah, she is getting some free food, drinks and fun sailing. She is getting a possibly free vacation. I think the people she is staying with are probably smart enough to see through any bullshit she can toss. I think that just from Jon Sanders comments about Reid breaking records that he is smart enough to not get caught up in this. So, while she may or may not be mooching, and even if she has not earned this or does not deserve it, she is getting it, and there is nothing we can do about it. If she is being a sleeze as we suspect, the longer she is over there stealing, the more ammo we and any honest press will have against her book. After all, all she appears to be in this for her future book, and that is fine. Shallow and self-centered, but fine. It is her choice.

I haven't heard of this type of cruise before, if it is in real then i would like to go for it. It will be very adventurous and even i want to know that how this experience will be, I have some friend

Translation ... "Sorry dude, no names and/or locations because I made it all up."   Reality ... Reid "supporters" rise up in direct opposition of "rabidity" of Reid bashers.   For instance, look a

This is what did it for me - when she interviewed right after she had cleared Customs and Immigration she was asked what her plans were. She didn't say to go home and see my family. Or to sleep in a warm bed. Or to have a long hot shower. Or to have a big bowl of ice cream. Or go for a long walk. She said to find a literary agent or publisher for her story. If she was seasick, homesick, Reidsick or whatever - I was have expected her to think firstly of her family and after that of some favourite normal thing. Nope not our Soanya. So while she may have started out a love sick naive woman child, she's been Reidified.

 

 

I just think it was always crazy to presume that she was somehow under RS's spell and had been conned into going with him. She lived on the damned cammenbarge for 12 months before they sailed and even a complete moron should have gotten a little bit of insight into RS's character. I've always thought she knew exactly what she was getting herself into except for the fact that she really didn't like ocean voyaging one little bit. A fact she only discovered once it was too late.

 

Now she's seen the main chance and is going for it. Problem is that unless someone gives her one hell of an advance I doubt there is much money in the book but then I also thought the Da Vinci Code was a load of poorly written crap so what would I know. :wacko:

 

On the other hand, if for once RS does the right thing and gets himself killed she might be in with a shot at the big time. Shoot, she should have married the sucker, then she could have been Weids Widow in Widows Weeds. (sorry)

 

Methinks that Weids Wimmin simply have lousy taste in men. Read the Bowling woman's rant and then try and tell me (without a smirk on your face) that her BBQ is not short a shrimp or ten. Simply fact is that in this case like attracted like and RS attracted a bunch of right nutters to his ratbag cause.

From Seamadness:

 

"I am quite confident that as more information comes forward, it will in fact prove she is mooching. I would put money on it.

OK, I respect your opinion on that...

 

And tdwombat, quite a few of us here knew from the beginning that she was a master conniver. SHE chased HIM, she was 17 when she started lurking about. SHE walked out on her family to pursue him. I had absolutely NO qualms about calling her a conniving tramp who is absolutely NOT naive like she wants the world to think, with that tiny little girl voice. Must have given Weid a woody every time she called him to "come on down" for lunch or dinner or whatever... ;)

And I felt sorry for her for about one minute when she was waiting to be "saved" but, again, we were conned!

And Weids widow in widow weeds is quite good...

Big round of applause to Thermopyle for getting front page here at SA as a newbie!

Next time you see a post from Thermopyle, reward him/her with a big "FUCK ON NEWB!" or "Cover your tits!"

 

 

 

NickDG - I'll drop that latest piece of 3rd grade garbage some sycophants call humorous art up on 100o days of hell. It sucks, but I think your self esteem could use a boost. ;)

actually, reid has had some pretty interesting women in his life. his first wife iris is an oceanographer and laurent appears very capable. i believe that she was an excellent sailor, (who never got her due) and her enthusiastic reminicences led s to think she would enjoy the voyage. laurent has been quoted saying of reid, 'lui, c'est un poisson'..(he's a fish). notice she said fish, not sailor. that's because laurent is a sailor too; and knows its nothing to be so awed by; it comes naturally, or in soanya's case..not at all.

reid's mythical 'captain of the azure' seduction can only catch non-sailor girls; real ones see through him and his boat immediately. he had to call this 'a voyage of the heart' to even woo soanya who hides from salt air.

as perhaps you've experienced, wombat, the pickings diminish as one ages; reid simply can't pull'em in the way he used to. he'd much rather find another gorgeous french girl who could not only handle watches but change/reef sails, hold a course, cook exquisitely and laugh at sea, but those days are gone; he's reduced to myspace girls.

soanya is bored stiff with this nautical sightseeing; she could care less about boats. there's no crime in that, though it is sort of embarrasing to see her trying to hold her own in such esteemed company. she's probably not much of a drinker either, and i can't imagine that she's very interesting; she's quite meek with that little voice. i don't think she has the brains to be calculating; she's more like the schooner anne in the tropics, drifting wherever the wind decides.

Oh, and by the way, does anyone here think that Soy has an exciting, interesting, riveting story to tell? I mean, from the small blurbs she included on the 1000days website, I don't think there's more than a couple chapters worth of words from her. I'd like to hear opinions if you think she has a best seller out there...thanks.

If she truly gets some real interview opportunities, I hope the person asking the questions digs into this vacation and its costs. Until then, maybe she will at least learns a little about Australia and the people there. Afterall, this is how most sailors travel the world. Sail to other places, then explore - but on their own dime for sure!!!

"Real interview"... screw you hippy. :P

Are we saying we want a follow up innerview with some hard questioning now she's had time to land on her feet?

 

Stuart: Here, Soanya, take this $100 euros to buy yourself something nice at the mall.

Nrs. Stuart: Here's $100 euros to buy yourself something nice.

HAHAHHAH, Australia... we have the dollar.

 

for the first time since hearing, reading or commenting on this little misadventure...the hovian accusations are finally correct......I AM JEALOUS! FINALLY! i am jealous of soanya! i wanna go shopping in australia! i wanna go sailing with jon sanders... i wanna see the parry endeavour.......I WANNA HAVE DRINKIES AT THE RPYC!!!!!! whaaaaaa!!!

For you two I'm sure I could arrange 99% of that! :D

If it's more of the same crap we've seen already? Nope, now way, not interested.

 

If she has some Silence of the Lambs, it puts the lotion on it's skin kinda shit on Weido? Hell yes! She needs to turn on Reid and throw him under the bus if she wants the big time best seller and all the press that comes with it.

I almost forgot where some of the bombs came from. She came to SA for a couple weeks, dropped a couple huge turds in an already rancid punchbowl and then just disappeared, never to be seen again. Without her accusations, we'd still be laughing at this egomaniac, but WTF? How pissed off could she have been with Reid and MC. She could have tossed him under the bus, but all she did was a tease push from the curb.

 

An abrupt departure as well. I hope she's doing well and getting on with her life and not being held in some dank dungeon in Void Hovia being sprout boarded. :ph34r:

 

 

MC accused Suzanna of being a "disgruntled ex-girlfriend", and she stood strong against a couple of goons sent here to discredit her. I doubt she has "disappeared" from here ~ my guess is she's observing. She told her side of the story and left it at that, and then didn't openly fan the flames or try to incite the "SA mob", as we're called. Any questions were put to rest once and for all when you acquired and posted the actual documents from Weed's court cases.

Oops! Sorry for the low blow! Not intended to slam you! yeah - I think all of us are a little shocked at how she came out of this so happy and hungry!!! We all thought she would be in more distress so we wanted you to be gentle. After watching her scarf down that ham and cheese samich, I am thinking she was a little more in control than we (I) gave her credit for. So, if you get the opportunity to ask some more questions...

 

Where is the money coming from to support you while in Australia, and also to get you home?

Would you change any decisions you made since signing up for this adventure?

Have you had any contact from the press?

What do you expect the world to gain from your experiences?

Why did you or Reid not take the scientific tools to perform any of the tasks you said you would do?

-study ocean and atmosphere

Are you going to remain part of this adventure now that you are on land, or are you going your own way?

Have you talked to your parents?

How long ago did you make the decision to get off Anne?

Do you know why the customs officials were under the impression you were gravely ill and in need of an emergency rescue?

Pipsqueak - The info on the earliest two , Laurent and Iris, where did that come from ? I remember reading something about Laurent on the 1000 days site cos she was on board for the turtle trip nonsense and antarctic arts fiasco but I don't recall seeing much on Iris other than that he skipped on child support and that she now lives in Hawaii. Oh, and btw, when one is but 18inches tall, rotund and furry there is rarely a time when Pickins is anything less than Slim. I mean , damn, I can't even get a gig on a J22 being both short and fat.

 

Seamadness - I'm sure she is mooching but probably from need more than anything else. My feeling, and it is but that, is that she, like her predeccessors was conned into believing that RS was going to be famous bigtime. Listen to him rattle of the names he so admires, Blake, Moitessier, Sanders, Cook, Chichester. There but for the grace of gawd go I thought RS. He simply doesn't have what it takes to do it and that's both skill and luck not just one or the other. That's not to say he can't make it out there for the rest of his 1000 days , maybe he can maybe he can't, but he'll never become a star.

 

Aseawolf - It's possible you could turn it into a telemovie. Wouldn't surprise me if someone snapped up the rights even if the thing was never made. It really wouldn't have to bear any ressemblance to fact now would it ?

 

Aside from all that, when she finally does climb on board the big white bird, it would be delicious irony if it turned out she also suffered from air sickness. It's one long haul flight from Perth to NYC and I figure she ain't gonna be sittin up the pointy end.

Be careful girls....

99% of "that" is simply 99% of the wanna.

 

I think you cutie little girls might be arranging a meeting with one of those internet predators...

 

 

and if meeting wierdos is all you are trying to accomplish...Austin is a hell of a lot closer than Australia.

Oh Yeah. Here is a map for Soanya to get home>>>

Thanks, Gouv, for making me see the light and realize things aren't always what they seem. Now I'm not jealous.

Er, isn't Texas it's own country? What's their currency...dollar, euro or peso?

I must compliment you on your photoshopping and graphics. It seems that you're getting better and better by the day, or is that just you coming out of your shell? Love the map, love the decal...Willie, beer, joint, lizard and an armadillo...what else could a person want for?

...catching up on a few days' worth...

 

 

Seawolf, RD - Not to sound like a Hovian, but about the 5 week thing? 5 weeks earlier (day 270), the closest place to drop her off, actually WAS Australia.

 

40° 44' 17" S, 76° 14' 10" E ...middle of fucking nowhere. Unless you want to count those tiny French Islands?

Congrats to Thermopyle on making the front page - well-deserved, brilliant piece of work.

 

 

 

redboat - I don't think they get any money from hits to the main site - but back in the day, they had a blog, and it had google ads. They eventually closed it because having to censor all the SA comments was too much for any Hovian to handle.

 

Some posters here still avoid giving them hits, just out of habit - but also because Hovian Control started installing tracking cookies. I'm not sure what that means, but I did notice it started to load much more slowly, about the same time, and firefox (tools/options/privacy/show cookies) does list 1000days.net if I've been there recently.

 

 

 

Hey - seriously, now - where the fuck IS Sailflat? Nauti checked in, but still no sign of him. Did the Hovians kidnap him or something?

Aren't the monthly planetarium broadcasts and phone call on the first Tues. of each month? Somebody here has got to make it a priority to get over there next week and possibly get a question in to Weed. It ought to be good to hear his explanation of all the recent excitement.

Very interesting perspective and info, Pipsqueak. I remember now reading about Laurent, long ago, on the 1000 Days site then basically lost interest in the whole thing (it was before I even knew there was a thread on SA), and can well imagine that someone with her sailing background would have seen right through Reid...whereas...Soanya... But I am puzzled about one thing. Can it possibly be true that Soanya began calling on Reid when she was only 17 years old? That is like 5-6 years ago...somewhere in this thread, in a recent post, someone who knows the history of Reid/boat/Pier 63, etc. wrote this. Just curious of the depth of her connection with Reid. Before she got on board, did she know him (in some respect) for that long..five years?

absolutely right.

But what really annoys me is that SINCE CHRISTMAS, Reid and mission control have been lying about Sayonara's health, saying that they were both in good health, while at the same time receiving paypal donations based on that lie, and while making telephone arrangements to have her removed.

 

The fact that mission control has not wired some money to sayonara, and that reid just dumped her and ran, is appalling. Reid didnt pull into harbour because they wouldnt let him leave again, with the stern quarter smashed away like that, with a hold full of dope, and a lack of safety equipment and liferaft.

 

Reid has lied to Australian Customs authorities (including federal police), and if he ever set foot in Australia, there is no doubt he would be charged with the criminal offence of falsely reporting to police, that a person was seriously injured, or that a persons life was in danger, while knowing it to be false. The offence contains the power to recover costs associated with the false report.

 

Reid you are a lying sack of excrement who deserves to vanish without a trace. Dont expect any tears to be shed here fella when that unzipping hull is letting in water faster than you can bail...

 

Go ahead and cry wolf a second time, about a life being in danger. And watch how fast we come to rescue you...(not).

The trouble with leaving a flaming parcel of turd on peoples front doorsteps, is sooner or later, you are going to run out of doorsteps, and nobody, but nobody will be sad to see you go.

 

Reid you give honest and humble cruising sailors a bad name in so many ways. A Jon Sanders you never will be.

 

A welcome visitor at any Australian sailing club, you definately now arent.

I'd venture a guess that there wasn't any lying to the officials in OZ. I assume that the folks at MC contacted Jon Sanders and presented him with the dilemma. That Sanders probably spoke with Reid, and that somehow Jon was able to smooth the way for the transfer such that officials looked the other way with Reid, except regarding the landing of Soanya. Regardless of how it went down, you folks in OZ dodged a bullet

 

BTW - you can find out exactly what happened in Soanya's forthcoming book.

Frenchie, It's been reported that Soy wanted to get off the boat since before Christmas, so with that thought in mind, from December 19-22 they were within anywhere from 266 nm to 466 nm off Capetown, and 4500 nm away from OZ. So, I guess the practical choice to take someone off who is "deathly ill" would have been SA, not OZ. But, firstly, MC didn't have any connections in SA and secondly, she wasn't "gravely ill."

More Mooching

 

Last days in Perth

Yesterday afternoon....

 

... Why would I get on a boat so soon you ask? Well sailing for 1000 days is a lot of work, a challenge and a danger.

How long is this blog going to last? One week, two? Since Reid has already failed on the 1000days without SEEING LAND, why didn't you set the countdown numbers back? And I don't think you can change goals midstream or alter those goals (now it's longest time for AN AMERICAN???). Like Jon Sanders said in this taped interview with Soanya, no records will be broken. Oh, and the Southern Ocean is at latitude 60 degrees, so they haven't been there yet. Tell the truth, MC!

 

Wrote this on their new blog...won't get posted but at least I said it. :lol:

Only way it could be of any interest is if it focuses on how she was held against her will, she became aware of his insanity and then learned of all he had kept from her. Most of the research could be pulled from this thread.

 

But it appears unlikely that she would take that interesting an approach. Reid has her convinced that they are both heros.

I guess it depends on exactly when she decided "I wanna get off this hulk!".

 

Their googleearth track shows the closest they ever got to Capetown was on day 237 (december 15th): 372 miles (or 323 nm) from Capetown. Where did you get 266nm from?

 

And that's 68 days before she left the cheese scow - almost 10 weeks - not "5 weeks".

 

 

Just trying to keep us on track, here. There's enough Totally Fucking Ridiculous shit to mock, without turning into a mirror-image of Mission Control.

Dear Friends,

Soanya arrives home in NYC tonight. She will be arriving at JFK on American Airlines flight 32 from Los Angeles at about 9:30. I suggest gathering at the American Airlines arrival gate area at about 9:00 to greet her. I am doing well myself I am one with the sea and the Anne though I am very sad to be without Soanya. Sorry about the lack of updates but I have been very busy with some much needed sail repairs. The new thread and cloth are helping me make repairs that will be much more sturdy. I hear the sea calling and I must return to it now.

All my best to Soanya and I hope that you all can greet her.

With love for all.

Reid

 

So, what does The Sea feel about being alone with Reid? Maybe it was The Sea who chased Soanya away, so she wouldn't be hurt?

MY EYES! MY EYES! I need an industrial decontamination shower!

 

I'm not sure who would be a more "fitting" Soy-bstitute to take her place alongside Weid on the Cheese Scow - the blonde "alien", or the Asian tranny...... Maybe the tranny is why Weid was pondering the man massage.

 

 

I love how "Blue" cross-dresses in red... deep shit there.

 

This is not recently done ~ it's a better-quality copy of the clip that was added to the Bon Voyage video we saw earlier... sort of the after-launch party. I know because I heard "Purple" again say: "Maybe this is like a celebration announcement for David Bowie because it's four months after his birthday, so that's very important." :blink:

That's been one of the most disturbing videos associated with this thing - scarier than the Void Ho video, but at least it gave us a glimpse at this Harold Channing interview guy. He's a nut with a lousy voice and, frankly, no discernible sense of rhythm.

 

this isn't the original, http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=PCZS73CH1wU; nor, a remix, (i don't think). same cast of characters; major tom must be the only song he knows.

Looks like AA 32 departs LAX at 1.30pm.

Imagine Soy would appreciate if some of you west coasters could scoot on over to to LAX and but the lady a few drinks while she's waiting (& sign her into a lounge please so she can freshen up after that long trip from Aus).

Yes! Yes! I was LMAO watching him try to get the beat (and remember the words to the song). Too hilarious. Couldn't watch the whole thing though since my eyes started to bleed.

Why haven't we seen that fucktard on YouTube under a sheet screaming "LEAVE SOANYA ALONE!" and crying like a bitch.

Hey RD, or someone else knowledge in the ways of MC/Weid...what's the scoop with the weekly "GoodNewsBroadcast.net Each week Thursday, 12 noon LIVE interview! GNB" posted on their site? I remember listening to a broadcast many, many months ago. Today being Thursday, I click the link to get to the GNB site, but don't immediately see/find any interviews. Are they still doing these? A quick hunt on their site only pulled up 2007 interviews, so I'm wonder if you or anyone else knows whether they're still doing these?

What a troll. We all know that Reid didn't look at Rottnest AND he didn't barter with Jon Sanders - illegal personalized whalebone voodoo sculpture for needle, thread and sailcloth. Shame on you for twying to twick us :rolleyes:

They're hawking Void Ho merchandise on the site now!

 

Shit, scraping the bottom of the barrel, or what! Totally an inside reference/joke to have a Void Ho shirt/thong/beer stein/messenger bag, etc....

I guess it depends on exactly when she decided "I wanna get off this hulk!".

 

Their googleearth track shows the closest they ever got to Capetown was on day 237 (december 15th): 372 miles (or 323 nm) from Capetown. Where did you get 266nm from?

 

And that's 68 days before she left the cheese scow - almost 10 weeks - not "5 weeks".

Just trying to keep us on track, here. There's enough Totally Fucking Ridiculous shit to mock, without turning into a mirror-image of Mission Control.

If you're going to be such a fucking nit-picker about everything I say then at least YOU get it right. Their first report was that she wanted off the boat before Christmas! As far as I'm concerned, that can mean she wanted off since May 1st or Sept. 1st or whatever. And excuse me for specifying "Capetown." On day 237 they were 266 nm from the closest point of land to them in South Africa.

What, because I disagreed with you about the weather in NY you're going to bust my hump about every "fact" I make? This is a parody, frenchie, so lay off. And I'll be willing to bet that once she opens that mouth and starts spewing we'll find out that she wanted off much sooner. No matter how many miles, she wanted off before Christmas and SA was way closer than OZ! Reid just couldn't arrange a pick-up in SA!

guess they altered the void ho outfit so they won't have to give suzanna a cut of the (shall i even use this word?) profits.

Good point...of course, it's always about Reid...

 

In any event, yes, it is very doubtful that Void Ho!-wear will become popular with the masses and be a big profit generator...LMAO! My guess is that Suzanna would be quite happy not to be affiliated in any way with this...

Yes, I was almost going post "I did not photoshop this", in case it was thought that I did!

 

Odd how it appeared suddenly on their site...almost as if Hovians here have been watching all the cracks made about Void Ho recently, and Thermopyle's recent

, the one that made the front page of SA yesterday...and, following the old dictum of the PR world that "even bad news can be good news", decided to hawk that shit as some kind of lame attempt to "control" the message...and try to make Void Ho "cool" or something.

 

Certainly showing up somewhere wearing a Void Ho shirt might generate a question or two from an inquisitive person...but anyone who takes time to watch the video will quickly realize that

I had to check, too, as it thought it was a joke! Weid and Soy ORNAMENTS? Note cards? WTF?!?

The Weid and Soy note cards, beer steins, etc. are old...what's new --very new, as in the past day or so as far as I can tell-- is the Void Ho "logo" crap, including the thong and matching beer stein (etc.). How anyone at MC thought such items could possibly lend any credibility to such an important scientific mission is beyond me...

 

(EDIT: one more post to try to push this on to the next page...didn't work!)

NEW SAILCLOTH AND THREAD ???

 

Aw comeon, tell me that he wasnt mercy resupplied when he dropped off Sayonara, please....

Can someone from freodoctor confirm that no parcel was passed to Reid....

 

Is the 1000/300 days at sea WITHOUT RESUPPLY still their objective ? It keeps changing almost as fast as the radar chaff hovian blogsites that are mushrooming...

 

Perhaps there is a hovian left there, sober who can tell me,

What IS the objective of the mission now ?

Is telling the truth an objective, or has that one finally been publicly dispensed with too (not that it was ever happening) ?

I bet a million dollars that Jon Sanders brought Weid a ham sammie, too! He was probably salivating for white bread after all these months!

 

According to an informed source, Soanya IS LANDING on AA flight#4 ahead of schedule at 8:10 PM (scheduled for 8:30). I'm assuming it's at JFK, not LGA. Will check and change if wrong...

I would be willing to bet that he was re-supplied. Look at how Jon et al looked after Soanya. Wanna bet that having heard that Reid blew out his sail and was using a very old one, that a care package to help him wasn't put together? Bet too that there is no way Reid passed it up. Another reason too for him having given away such a prized possession to Jon Sanders. Funny that too. Seems to me that Stuart from RPYC was the fella that stepped up the most -- boat, sammies, drinks and 'za at the club, a place to crash complete with jacuzzi, shopping money and so on. Reid slobbers all over the famous guy -- so typical. Would be interesting though to get confirmation about what went onboard the Cheese Scow as Soanya and her belongings came off.

I know some of the more experienced on thread can help me:

 

What exactly is the difference between the "Void Ho" Classic thong, and the regular thong? :huh:

 

The "Classic", as opposed to the regular is worn backwards, thereby becoming know as the "Void Ho T-Bone".

As far as the store goes, just so everyone knows, there are several on-line companies that sell exactly what MC is offering. All you do is send them your logo, they do the rest including taking orders. My wife belongs to a local Mom's group and they have the same thong available that says, "I love SLO county Moms!" So, MC is not necessarily choosing what items it will offer. That being said, I still would steer clear of any woman wearing Void Ho on her well, you know!

Jon Saunders sounds in his interview like a really laid back great guy. An older sailor at ease with himself and the world. The Perth Royal Yacht Club has treated Soy well because that is how they treat people. I doubt they feel they have done anything beyond the usual and what they would hope someone would do for one of their own who drifted up on a far shore.

 

There is a great book about “Amish Grace” (the title and the theme) that talks about forgiving and letting stuff go. In this case they have had several pleasant days showing a “newbie” a part of their world and heard about her adventures (or lack there of). All for the exorbitant price of a half day trip on the sea and being nice to a lost young woman for a couple of days. Probably a good break in their summer routine.

 

Good on ‘em.

We're all on the same side - or so I thought... although your attempt to call out Shife on that other thread, together with this, and your access to info like what plane she's landing on... make me wonder, now.

 

Vague allegations that might be distortions, defensive attitudes & frak-outs when someone wants to check... that's for the Hovians, remember? Here in SA, we investigate & debunk & share confirmed info which leads to more investigations & more info... and have a damn good time doing it 'cause we're cracking jokes the whole time... but we share resources.

 

AGAIN: where did you get the info about when she wanted off the scow? All I've got is the Hovian mention of "five weeks", echoed by you and RD - then all of a sudden it's "before Christmas"... source, please? I said please this time, so don't freak out on me again, okay? Just answer the fucking question.

The company they're using that provides the merchandise is www.cafepress.com...(link from 1000 Days site). But MC is clearly choosing what items it is offering...they're making available their own pictures/logos on the merchandise that cafepress.com sells. So, someone at MC had the brilliant idea to choose to sell Void Ho panties, or whatever, and beer steins, etc.

 

What a crazy mad fucker...1000 days without beer...

Come on now. Sanders is a straight up kind of guy. If he had assisted RS I don't believe he would have done it in an underhand manner. I also doubt the RPYC would be a party to such dodgey dealings. Apart from which Sanders is one of RS's heroes, not surprising that he would kow tow to him and RS was hardly likely to have known that Stuart was going to lavish such hospitality on Soanya. RS is a dick, we all know that, but fairs fair, those people in Perth were only trying to do what they thought was right. ( I'd reckon we could surely discount that supposed post from "Reid Stowe" as a fake, don't you ?)

 

BTW, from viewing the video interview I really do think that when Sanders said "won't break any records" he was meaning "speed records". Can't be sure of course but that was my reading of it.

Not says JS is dodgy at all or that there was some sort of underhanded assistance given -- quite the contrary. I'm saying that the generosity shown to Soanya would lend credence to the possibility of a donation of sail repair materials to Reid. He would certainly be in need of same.

The Internet always yields up weird stuff...Suzanna Bowling worked as a fortune teller in Provincetown, Mass. Presumably it's the same person...one of her earlier posts, from a few months ago (from the fucking archives, which I've understandably been admonished enough times to read) mentions time spent working on a show in Provincetown a few years ago.

 

This is a listing of licensed businesses (2005) in the city of P'town I just found:

http://www.provincetowngov.org/reg_drm/drm...5lic/June05.htm

 

Makes sense to me now...she can see into the future, and she saw a doubtful future indeed for Weid and decided to jump ship even before getting on board...it's all becoming so much clearer to me now...the more I gaze into the tea leaves that are the past thread archives...

I cannot remember if it was from an audio of Reid talking to MC, or somewhere else, but I also heard that they were talking about Soanya wanting off since Christmas time. Later, we learned that arrangements of some kind had begun sometime in the 5 weeks prior to the dump off. The Christmas time thing was not insider information. It circled around here when we learned of the plans.

The first claim of her wanting off stated "before Christmas." When I have nothing better to do I'll go back and find out where I heard 'before Christmas.' Think it was in an audio but am not sure.

I got a PM about her flight...and definitely not from a hovian! And me a hovian? that's a joke -- I'm probably the one who's had the worst to say about Sayonara and I'm a hovian? Don't think so, frenchie. Can we now kiss and make up? I'll search for the before christmas thing...

Indeed he would but if he had assisted RS he would have made that known I'd think. After all, JS set a number of legitimate records and he's not likely to assist RS in trying to claim he went through unassisted if he didn't. After all it is JS's record of 600 plus days that the Voidster is aiming at.

 

In the end what's the betting that RS does a Moitessier, announces that he's over being competitive, that western society holds no attraction and heads for a nice sunny tropical island where he and the scow can rot away in peace.

Soanya is on AA flight #4, currently scheduled to arrive at JFK at 9:42. Flight took off late from LAX. ;)

She might have a very un-welcoming committee awaiting her grand entrance, quite unlike the red carpet treatment she got at Perth.
