Couple Cruise for 1000 Days


Recommended Posts

I will say there needs to be more updates on his site. He needs to get the machine turning and to do that we need updates.

 

Nag dabbit slightly salty. You had to resurrect this dead thread from the middle of page 3.

 

This thread cannot die ... it is being masterfully fueled by the finest example of a person who has found the secret to building interest by doing absolutely nothing. The Dalai Lama is an amateur in the respect compared to Stowe.

At the risk of once again being accused of just not getting the wonderful sense of humor and sarcasm here, I must say that continually sailing on a 70' boat you built yourself (with family and friends) for one thousand plus days in what will be a virtual single singlehanded circumnavigation when done-- may be strange and unusual although it is indeed a something and a feat of endurance, tenacity and deprivation, that only depraved bastards like regatta slutpuppy and his mongrel crew wouldn't be able to recognize as such. And maybe now also you, for having hung out here among the retarded rabble so long, your synaptic function also derives it's stimulus from a fake anarchic way of seeing things. The Dalai Lama stands way above and beyond a non-scurvy sailor who stretches the truth to fit his ends,

and even the most sordid of kool aid drinkers on the other side would ne'er dare to compare the saintly religious leader of the world's tibetan buddhists, that wonderful religion and man of great compassion, to the simple sailor stowe, who rides to his own rogue waves on and on and on and on....like the man in the New Yorker said- and i paraphrase-: the energizer bunny of explorers."

 

 

Kill this thread. Leave Stowe and his legion of supporters around the world in peace.

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

A legion JustSuckyDucky?

 

WHat LEGION? 70 people near MC showed up to celibate - pun intended - 1000 days? That's it???

 

Definition of Legion - Note OnlyDucky made it singular instead of plural as in "Legions."

 

1. The major unit of the Roman army consisting of 3,000 to 6,000 infantry troops and 100 to 200 cavalry troops.2. A large military unit trained for combat; an army.3. A large number; a multitude.

A virtual single singlehanded circumnavigation? :lol: Is that the masturbatory equivalent to actually sailing?.

 

 

aw come on barley, 'ave another beer.

 

soanya doesn't count as doublehanding anything other than the computer or cooking for the first 305. if you were virtually singlehanding a 70 foot schooner continually since 2007, i imagine you do a bit o'drifting too.

A few hopeful and adventure loving souls contributed. Some here did their very best to scuttle the voyage, pretending they were acting in the elitist certainty of knowing what's better for others to think, believe and do. In reality, this underfunded barebones spartan experiment in self deprivation for years, will remain on the fringe and in the annals of strange voyages into unknown territory. Not the most dangerous or exciting, noteworthy nor accomplished- yet unique in it's inestimable flavor for the absurd, and certainly for arousing the passions of people all over the planet, J.

 

Whether they be blue water sailors and passagemakers, sit at home wannabees, or simply thrilled to vicariously join the ride of a man at sea for so long: the passionate followers (and you here on this thread do certainly count as being under this label as some of the most ardent of his followers by definition) his outrageous claims, self promotion, and long distance/time voyage around the planet have proven to catch the fancy of all persuasions and walks of life.

If i am at the club lady pipsqueaker, rest assured my stern is facing the other way, looking at the sailing vessel on the water, and feeling a longing for being there and not at some white linen table clothed seltzer water contrived setting amid the delicacies of landlubbing at its finest.

 

Void ho sir ducky? MY god man, I just returned from doing exactly that, 'ave you got ur binocs trained on me potty man?!

70 was just more Ducky spin. One of the articles said 40 gathered. All I know is that only about 5 or 6 applauded Yuko, and one of those was Redboat heard from afar.

Perhaps the Stowe supporters should not claim sailing records for Soanya then, or promote her as a great female sailor. If I wanted to singlehand for an extended period, I would choose a vessel more appropriate to the task that was in seaworthy condition and setup for single handed sailing. I would not entertain drifting aimlessly for extended periods, to me that is utterly pointless. Your mileage may vary. I will be having beers later, but it is 8:40 A.M..

Nag dabbit slightly salty. You had to resurrect this dead thread from the middle of page 3.

 

This thread cannot die ... it is being masterfully fueled by the finest example of a person who has found the secret to building interest by doing absolutely nothing. The Dalai Lama is an amateur in the respect compared to Stowe.

At the risk of once again being accused of just not getting the wonderful sense of humor and sarcasm here, I must say that continually sailing on a 70' boat you built yourself (with family and friends) for one thousand plus days in what will be a virtual single singlehanded circumnavigation when done-- may be strange and unusual although it is indeed a something and a feat of endurance, tenacity and deprivation, that only depraved bastards like regatta slutpuppy and his mongrel crew wouldn't be able to recognize as such. And maybe now also you, for having hung out here among the retarded rabble so long, your synaptic function also derives it's stimulus from a fake anarchic way of seeing things. The Dalai Lama stands way above and beyond a non-scurvy sailor who stretches the truth to fit his ends,

and even the most sordid of kool aid drinkers on the other side would ne'er dare to compare the saintly religious leader of the world's tibetan buddhists, that wonderful religion and man of great compassion, to the simple sailor stowe, who rides to his own rogue waves on and on and on and on....like the man in the New Yorker said- and i paraphrase-: the energizer bunny of explorers."

So I say, hey Lama...How about a little something for the effort?. He says "I won't give you money, but you will receive a man massage from Buddha and Jesus and a lifetime supply of sprouts". So at least I've got that going for me..which is nice.

Since someone else bumped this, I have to ask, the dude has had 1000+ days to sail and has managed on circumnavigation? Assuming that he took a whole year to complete the circuit, what the fuck has he been doing for the following two years? Floating around off of Africa? It looks like he's been drawing pictures on the map when you look at the Google earth thing. Reading the original mission statement, I can't figure out how any of what he has done has actually achieved anything other than wasting other people's money, getting a woman pregnant, disposing of a block of parmesan, and creating some first rate, fourth grade refrigerator art. It seems like slightly salty and justducky are the two proponents so please, explain this to me as it seems he has deviated from his original plan.

 

 

This was his original plan. Some foolish idiot wrote in one of his publicity pamphlets years before he left that he planned four circumnavigations. Yeah, if he had a spaceship he may have attempted that. As it is, he has one extremely heavy and slow 60+ton schooner and one circumnavigation seems pretty much according to plan and not wild expectations. Art on the water. Sail a little sail alot drift a little drift a lot. The 1,000 days was/is the thing/ once around enough. It is not a racing boat left on auto to go at high speed around the globe multiple times. Not a plastic bottle boat. Not even wood. It is heavy man, slooooow n heavy and will make it all the way back home again.

 

And no, to the best of my knowledge although I have no contact with him whatsoever, he has not completely disposed of the block of cheese. It was a very big block. When he comes back, ask him if you can see what's left and have a piece. He's very giving.

No doubt ... he has a lot in common with the Buddhist dudes though. Yes, he's accomplishing something by surviving, but it would be a lot easier to survive on land.

 

His whole M.O. is that he does what he does without significantly altering things around him, he's like the Dalai Lama in this respect. He's neither building homes, nor blowing up homes. He's neither building roads nor shelling roads. He's neither building a corporation nor staging a hostile takeover of a corporation.

 

Doing nothing is tough, and doing nothing while keeping the attention of thousands is even tougher.

Whaa? Dude, Sailing Anarchy is the best way I have found to instantly enter the Dalai Lama's headspace.

 

I turn off the drill press, and the seaming machine and the power supplies and the test equipment, and then I sit down in a chair, type "sailinganarchy" and within seconds I am immediately in a virtual space with a few hundred other people who are doing absolutely nothing.

 

And then I come to the 1000 Day thread and we pay homage to a guy who has made the art of doing nothing a masterpiece.

A bulk carrier the Berge Pacific just passed within sixty miles of our favorite unit.

 

Has anyone notice that she seems to have made a break out to the west. Headed for the current off the coast of Brazil I suggest. Reading Joshua Slocom and he says there is a 40 mile a day push from the current along there. Should help our unit make it home in time for the parade. B)B)

Um, on the Dalai Lama thing: Whatever. If you want to emulate the Dalai Lama, try coming here and being nice for one day.

 

On the 1000 days thing: I'll believe the "foolish idiot" stuff when they post something on the website that say "our plan all along was to slowly go around the world once and then bob aimlessly in the ocean" on his website and name the name of the alleged foolish idiot. In the mean time, that stands as one of the goals. What about all of the collecting data for NASA stuff? Where did that go?

 

On the cheese: If I need parmesan, I can go get some at the store. I prefer my cheese not to have been drifting about in a barnacle farm for 3 years, thanks.

 

And maybe I'm just catching up now but what's all this stuff about owing back child support? Has that been cleared up? Forgive me if I'm not interested in going back through 1000 pages of this drivel.

Looks like donations to "Reid Debt" may have paid off at least one judgement after the newspapers reported about his non-payment of child support. I wonder when the meter is going to start running with Soanya or if Reid is going to claim Darshen isn't his.

NY bound?

 

I've been wrong a couple of times when I thought a westerly drift for a couple of days indicated that Weido might be in the grasp of the Trades and slipping out of his eddy. Metocean tracking now indicates a week or so of westerly snailspace movement so Tantra Schooner might be on the move.

 

If the case, surprised MC wouldn't have issued a press release and had yet another party with lame music. Can they get another band? Sorry Yuko.

Nice music, nice vids though- what island was it btw? puerto rico? Just like in three hours of computer generated barely dressed giant blue people of Pandora in Avatar, all the purrfect bodies are puritanically north americanmanly covered up.

It would appear that he is headed west so he can head home same direction several days in a row and actually did 78 miles in a day.

 

Container ship ER London passed within thirty miles.

 

Interestingly there is Moorings Cat being delivered that also passed close by. Intersting blog by a guy who delivers for a living:

Pretty pathetic that MC can't do any ghost writing while he's in the home stretch of his epic VOYAGE, with his coms out of commission!

 

But we are not surprised.

 

I heard of someone wanting to set a new polesitting record, that's looking for donations of sprouts, cheese and a willing concubine.

Duck, the boat is right there, how did you not see it?

 

You might have to watch this video about fifty or sixty time like I did, until you can see it. But it's there.

 

Island ... the vid is Creole, so it would either be Haiti or Martinique or Guadeloupe. I'm pretty sure it's Guadeloupe. The S.V. Hoedown II is visible at about 2:35.

Just read Mark Singer's article about Weido in the New Yorker.

 

I'm certain E.B. White is cruising around in heaven in one of Joel's designs muttering "who the hell decided to put this rubbish in my rag?" Are there no editorial standards anymore?

 

Singer goes to the 1000 day love fest, has a couple o' brews, listens to MC and Mr. Explorers Newsletter's tales of adventure on the high seas and then kicks out some fawning prose.

There are a lot of people in the Huntsville area that have moved there from other parts of the country. With the rocket program, aerospace companies and other high tech businesses, a lot of outsiders were recruited.

 

I lived there for sometime while training at a computer company and a lot of their instructors and programmers were from the notheast region of the country. Others that worked at Redstone and Boeings were true "rocket scientists" and were from all over the country. Nice bunch of people.

Just read Mark Singer's article about Weido in the New Yorker.

 

I'm certain E.B. White is cruising around in heaven in one of Joel's designs muttering "who the hell decided to put this rubbish in my rag?" Are there no editorial standards anymore?

 

Singer goes to the 1000 day love fest, has a couple o' brews, listens to MC and Mr. Explorers Newsletter's tales of adventure on the high seas and then kicks out some fawning prose.

 

 

Thanks for your reporting.

 

I was going to do just that, but thought it might make me lose my lunch...........

 

As it probably would have...

Maybe it's a subliminal message that only Mike can see?

 

JustDucky can see it. Only Reid supporters can! Mike, your company value just went up ten fold.

I hear they be packing heat in Alabama

 

Sorry Red, she's from your neck of the woods, a Harvard Alum. Nutty as a Northerner, presumably the reason they gave her the boot.

 

Us Southerners know how to hold our liquor and keep our insanity tucked discretely away.

There are a lot of people in the Huntsville area that have moved there from other parts of the country. With the rocket program, aerospace companies and other high tech businesses, a lot of outsiders were recruited.

 

I lived there for sometime while training at a computer company and a lot of their instructors and programmers were from the notheast region of the country. Others that worked at Redstone and Boeings were true "rocket scientists" and were from all over the country. Nice bunch of people.

 

I knew her. She was in the same entrpreneurial seed-capital program I was in, she was one of the mentors from the year before me. She seemed pretty normal ... I guess homicidal maniacs go to great effort to hide their secret talent.

 

You're right that Huntsville folks are friendly, second highest concentration of physicists in the U.S.A., behind Los Alamos. And they love hockey up there.

I hear Aunt Eunice's isn't around anymore, but that was the bomb. Best sausage biscuits I ever had, and the unwritten rule that whoever got up to grab a cup of coffee from the pot had to serve coffee to the other patrons was classic.

 

She was a hot shit. First time I was in there she sat down at the table and talked about her mom-n-nem, and how when she was a kid and had to wear shoes for a special occasion, she'd put dirt in them or she could walk "natural like".

Never went to Aunt Eunice's, but usually went to breakfast buffet at the local Shoneys on Sundays. All the locals hung out there. Could not warm up to the grits, but their B&G was the best! And big slabs of bacon and tubs of sausege! Yum!

Of course they seem friendly, with so many physicists. They are one group of people that just won't STFU. I have yet to meet a physicist who can just tell you the time. You ask them what time is it, and they tell you how to build a watch. Great people to have around when you want to know how to build a watch, not so great when you just want to know what time it is.

Sorta loosing interest here with no updates, vids or much movement. MC could keep it a bit more lively with stories of his childhood or something. It'll be nice when he starts sailing back and then MC will have more updates I hope. I don't like the non comunicado, makes me nervous. :ph34r:

So has anyone figured out what "other vesssels" the hovians chose to displayon google earth near the unit?

 

Today Tramper passed about 100 miles ahead. Depending on the updates it could have been closer.

 

Tramper is another heavy lift vessel. Apprently these are used to carry big stuff that won't fit inthe hold of other ships and includes offshore oil field equipment. Sure seems like there are a lot of these kinds of boats. Look ugly as sin, wonder how they handle seas, and . . . . . what it rate :rolleyes:

What do you think one of those puppies cost to use?

I'm guessing 30K US$ a day, plus lifting/unlifting fees.

What's the schooner Anne worth?

80KUS$? More? Less?

I'm guessing less...

Whoops, Mars 'aint that far after all. Maybe Ried can do another 78 days without stopping.

 

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20100226/sc_afp/usspacenasamars

 

This is what I told y'all about several months ago, Mars only seems far when your boats are pokey.

 

 

Who am I to belief, Weid or Cliff? Tough choice.

 

Remember Weido has been working with NASA for decades, published articles, etc. If he says it's 1000 days, then it's 1000 days.

New YouTube posting - "Navy Fly-by Traffics Anne around Shooting Zone". I really feel bad for these guys. The audio is so crappy they'll never be able to produce a documentary you could comfortably sleep through.

 

 

Interesting hardships --

 

In a firing range "Apparently were sailing into an area that was used to conduct firing tests. What kind of firing tests? I don't know, but we were more than happy to move". I don't think the CG posts the ordnance the Navy's tossing around in the Notice to Mariners.

 

Not even 2 weeks out and he's busy "Making repairs to the blocks, ropes, and all different kinds of things around the deck of the boat." Way to prep for 1000 days at sea.

 

Soanya on the trials and tribulations of maintaining the blog --

 

"I wish I could simply be present in the moment and think only about being at sea, but Reid and I promised to send back blogs, and I am caught off guard by just how many hours I spend each day on the computer.............We've been keeping up with our blog. That takes up most of my time."

Soanya then goes into the work she does - a couple hours I'd guess, and then explains how these couple hours, that take up most of her time, are too much for her and she decided to limit her computer time to every other day. That basically means that the chore that takes up "most of her time" has been limited to about an hour a day. Kudos to you fair sailing lady, you certainly earned a spot in the record books.

 

 

BTW -- MC -- You may want to change the scrolling type for day 10 to read "1 Noisy Ocean" instead of "1 Noise Ocean", they have completely different meanings.

 

I'm looking forward to the collision video. YCMTSU.

laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif !!! Well I WAS thinking MORE SITAR!!!

Doh! Of course!

And I actually thought about that. Honest, I did.

But, you know, that bird has left the cage, metaphorically speaking.


My favorite part of all of this is those posed shots of Reid and Soanya staring off into infinity.

 

Reid - he's just whacked out. I mean, how deep and soulful can you get, o Buddha Dude?

But Soanya - I can't tell if it's shell-shock, naivety, denial, or just plain reverence for Reid's huge fertile dick.

 

Maybe some unholy combination of all-of-the-above.

Oh yeah! laugh.gif They sure emphasize the GLOBAL IMPORTANCE of their MISSION. I crack up to think how long it took them to stage those to capture that special sense of purpose. Soy always worried about her hair ~ that alone prolly required 20 takes. He looks like a corpse with his slicked back hair and "good" shirt (also reserved for his American Sailing Hero Claims Solo Record portrait).

So I guess he' s begun his attempt to return to NY.

 

"Uncomfortable to go outside". Poor baby. Better get used to it again. Will be crossing some serious shipping lanes and he may have to go outside and keep watch once in a while to avoid setting yet another record. The number of mid ocean collisions during a single voyage.

He is really headeing west consistently now. The Anemone must have passed within hailing distance.

 

It is interesting to note that the two women going solo around the world acknowlege other vessels regularly and he almost never. Slocum did the same in his book. I wonder if part of the reason I find him anoying is that he does not have a relationship with the sea or those on it or in it that I can identify with, whereas, the others do. it is strange because the same elements of story telling are in some of his posts, but the view point is kind of foreign.post-7786-126745582822_thumb.jpg
