    He wanted to leave for Japan in February 2018.  Perhaps he's going to nearby Guam to do a complete refit on Mimsy.

    Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Islands that are rabies free don’t care where you are coming from, animals must be tested or quarantined or both.  They leave nothing to chance.

    I'm not very optimistic about Rima's chances.  I'm believe he hit a reef, probably at night,  and he was so terrified that he left Mimsy to the elements.  Stranded on a reef,  trying to wade or swim away would just make the end come sooner.   Sadly, I am declaring him missing and presumed dead...

    yep If you read my post, you will see that I stated that you CAN receive earned Social Security outside the US.  But you CAN NOT receive SSI unless you live in one of the 50 states, Washington DC, or the Northern Mariana Islands.  If you leave any of those places of residence for more than 30...
