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

Why is it that you demand that other people prove their assertions to your satisfaction while you spout oft bizarre theories that utterly defy reason and expect to be taken seriously?.   Stowe isn't

Sounds like Reid will have enough left after his trip to put on a HUGE buffet for all. That should be a great party!! :rolleyes:

 

A buffet of what? Leftover dried flying fish with some Parm on the side with some sprouts as a garnish? Like I've said before, there is no mention of anything even remotely gourmet being consumed on the Mars Love Voyage. When Soy got picked us she was devouring that sandwich like she had never seen food before. If she had been eating well, i.e. food acceptable to the palate, then she wouldn't have been so hungry for a simple sandwich. Caviar, foie gras, eggs benedict - OK, but a sandwich?

Let's hope that on the merits of such an incredible voyage through the oceans of time that they just let him in and use the boat for research. :(

 

As an artificial reef?

 

Only appropriate. It's been a floating one now for about three years.

Just unfortunate he can't GO anywhere.

 

That would be where the comparison ends.

Peyton will make it to the hall on his past achievements.

Stowe on the other hand, has none.

Based on the positioning of sailors of note time line for the decade right now- Stowe's in mainstream sailing rags of late & he's being put into the unofficial long distance sailing hall of fame right now.

 

 

 

 

like it or not buddy, he's making it into sailing rags, internet adventure/expedition sites and mainstream consideration for achievements in the world of sailing. keep circlin' them buoys and buying drinks for da boys while stowe sails on

 

1000 days+ straight through is something to consider after all, especially when most of us haven't done more than weeks straight on a sailboat passagemaking before hitting the next port of call.

Hehehe.. UNofficial. (Must have SOMETHING to do with assistance off Rottnest on day 306)

Good one. I like that.

Made my day.

 

Carry on.

 

EDIT- I googled ULDSHOF.

(Insert crickets chirping here.)

 

Your search - ULDSHOF - did not match any documents.

 

Suggestions:

 

Make sure all words are spelled correctly.

Try different keywords.

Try more general keywords.

Is that officially being put in the unofficial long distance sailing hall of fame, or unofficially?. Off the record, where is the official site for the unofficial LDSHOF?. Would it not be better to unofficially put him in the unofficial long time sailing hall of fame, since he unofficially isn't covering much official distance?

It would be more noteworthy if he locked himself in a mars analogous closet for 1000 days.

JD is right. Stowe got some press in New Yorker magazine. Here's the final paragraph --

Good golly! WTF????? I mean, I'm in Miami waiting for the Boat Show to open, does someone want to sponsor me for my hooker expidition? Let's see, I have a boat, so all I need now is cheese, condoms, and some sprouts. So Parm regiano, Trojan, and Herbal Resources, STEP up, 'cuz if you don't I'll have to forgive you while I ahem, drift amongst the ladies.

 

If you don't know what I am gonna do with the cheese, don't bother asking. If you are wondering about the sprouts - it's cuz I like my pussy fresh, even if it ain't. And if you are wondering about the condoms, you are Reid Stowe and you have an extra 'puter on board. I mean - how else is this guy gonna watch porn?

-1! Captain Cook and all others got it. Drifting is not what sailors do. NO, destinations are part of the program. I just had to bump and grind my 6'6" draft out of Ft. Laud and into Miami - outside of course. Anyone can drift, it takes a good sailor to bring the damn ship to port.

 

The good life is a process - not a destination. That been said, drifting about isn't really cool especially when he could simply sail into any of the numerous ports on this side and get on with life. YOU HAVE THE 1ooo days record asswipe! Now move on! Get some pussy like the rest of us look forward to when we reach port! THAT I would respect!

 

RedViking out!!!! Look for me at the Miami boat show. I'll be wearing the T-shirt thats says "Looking for Chicks that wanna Drift and make silly shapes with my GPS"

So these are the 4 records MC is claiming for out intrepid drifters.

 

Kay Kottee is mentioned as the previous record holder of the "longest nonstop woman voyager". Soanya crushed the prior 189 day record with her 306 day time on the boat.

 

Amazing in that during her 189 day sail, the Aussie Kay Kottee did a solo circumnavigation. Soanya who never ventured beyond the Hudson prior to departure and spent most of her days below finds the two voyages comparable? Right.

They're shameless.... Here's an excerpt from Soy's Q&A:

 

 

More questions for Soanya

Tuesday, 16 December 2008

More questions from the audience.

 

After your experience, if you had the ability to go back in time and give yourself one piece of advice about living at sea, what would it be?

"This is a tough question. I don’t have many regrets about how I handled being at sea. Perhaps I might tell myself to spend a little more time on deck than I did. Then again when I think back to the conditions that were present, I’m not sure I would have done it differently anyway. Being outside meant accepting that your skin and clothes would become saturated with damp salt, and salty clothes don’t dry very easily. Salty skin feels permanently sticky and there isn’t a huge amount of fresh water available for washing it off often. It was also often windy out and that sometimes felt more like an assault of the elements rather than a welcoming touch.

Below decks, it was dry, quiet, and pleasant. Many people have wondered how one can limit themselves to 70 ft of space, but I was perfectly content to keep myself to about half that amount for almost a year. Of course, I did go out when I had to and on nice sunny days, but for the most part I preferred to be below."

Thanks JP. Sums it up rather nicely. Should be bookmarked and recounted when she does her interviews.

 

Skin and clothes saturated with damp salt. Ewwwwww. Yuck.

 

Whenever I feel sorry for Sprout Princess as a victim and all the rigors of motherhood, I'm brought up short by the arrogance of her claims. She learned well from her master.

Hate to stereotype, but it seems the caste system was acceptable to all (2) parties. Her duties were below where she obviously had accommodated Reid only limited by her ability to stave off pregnancy. Hopefully they won't intentionally maim Darsheen to improve his begging skills.

 

Instead of donating to Reid's non-non-profit, donate to this.

Somewhere around the 10th blowjob my girlfriend in high school gave me,

she said, "MMMmmm, :rolleyes: Slightly Salty... :P I need another beer" :lol: !

 

If they had beer, and/or she swallowed more, her premature ejaculation from the 1000 day trip might have been avoided.

I dunno guys, think it's a fine statement. She's just young and innocent and without prior sailing experience she's just telling about things she noticed. No big deal, just let her give an opinion and leave it at that. I mean she does seem to be getting the short end of the stice here but no need to pour salt on the wounds. She should really take more credit than she does. :(

it's always an adventure when we leave the scow, that's why i carry the DISCOVER card.

you can now make your fully taxable contributions to the 1000 days and beyond fund with your DISCOVER card and accrue scow miles redeemable on reid's return.

She is denying the entire sailing experience. It is bad enough that Reid chooses to loll about with the least possible amount of human effort or strain on the boat (the latter more or less necessary, most likely.) But to do nothing but hang out down below is just plain denial. It is not psychologically nor physically healthy.

 

As a point of concession, if my only choice to hiding down below was to spend time on deck with Capt. Wonky I might just assume the fetal position myself. My favorite graphic from 1000 days:

There is nothing wrong with the statement, it shows pretty clearly that she was a neophyte that spent her time down below by choice. The problem comes when you, JD and others want to label her as a great sailor and adventurer or brag about her sailing "records". It is like calling a monkey that went into space a great astronaut. She was a passenger. I'd give her credit for being a passenger for 306 days, but nothing more.

That was a relatively calm day on the North Atlantic. Look up the word gale and see what it says. That, my dear slightly sickeningly sweet was not and never was a gale. Fast and loose with the facts like that will never make Stowe a friend of experienced sailors.

actually, in the vid sprout prinny says she didn't think it was stormy at all, sort of nice and reid sounds disappointed she doesn't agree with him about it being a gale they sailed through.

 

fast and loose with the facts, ma'am- again.

That was a relatively calm day on the North Atlantic. Look up the word gale and see what it says. That, my dear slightly sickeningly sweet was not and never was a gale. Fast and loose with the facts like that will never make Stowe a friend of experienced sailors.

 

As if that were possible.

Think he's been in high energy dangerous athletic drift mode. Slight easterly flowing current opposed to whatever whisps of easterly trades has enabled him to bob around without much movement.

 

What a waste of time. How long has he been in this area now, 9 months? Tantra schooner probably won't be too happy when all the rigging/gear is loaded up and sailing again. UV deterioration and wear from regular movement will have taken their toll.

OLD GUYS RULE! Hey Wei®d, your ex wife is on the prowl for an even older guy!

 

Time to throw away that Box of Just For Men I gave you. Here's a pic if that'll help you find it near the cheese and firewood pile.

Another fakebook gem:

 

"Fool of Hearts"

 

"The path of great expectations is not for pragmatists or conservatives. It is for fools with heart who can let their imaginations move to deeper insights, out of the box and sometimes out of bounds.

 

If we are going to be free to be curious about alternatives in life, sometimes we wind up deviated from the normal and often special revelations arrive.

 

Life is twisted too and has a tendency to screw up our expectations and fools with heart can sometimes make the best of these situations."

One of my favorite magazines, the New Yorker, has an article about Weid in this weeks edition. Quotes call him the Energizer Bunny of explorers and reference Columbus and Shackleton. I'm aghast.

 

 

is that online?

Ok, finally Reids getting some press. And in the New Yorker at that! There's a huge readership there to tap into. I hope this starts to snowball for him as he nears the end of his trip. :D

I have always thought that one of the things to look forward to is the "Return of the Anne".

 

You knew form the begining that there would be coverage and that he would be on some talk shows, write a book, give talks and become sailings Kato Kaelin.

 

You also knew that this would drive a number of hovians to proclaim that he was the second coming of Joshua Slocum and the detractors to go nuts in response.

 

In short this is a train wreck growing bigger by the day.

 

Popcorn please. :P:PB)

So, what did I miss?

 

 

Seamad!!! Didn't miss much! Weed's been parked off West Africa since last June, painting and still psycho-babbling.... but he did quit telling us how Jesus and Buddha were visiting to man-massage his arms. He doesn't post now anyway, since his 2nd onboard computer croaked in December. He's returning mid-June with a gala flotilla up the Hudson ~ I'm sure Racing Wag Just Ducky would welcome your joining in on the fun.

As long as he stays outside the environment that is. Or if the front doesn't fall off.

It'll be a great homecoming when he rolls into port. All the great sailors should be there to welcome him home and lend support. The dudes been out there a looonngg time now. Probably take weeks for the motion effects to wear off. Should be a good study.
