This was posted recently: On Wednesday some of his friends responses on Facebook mentioned travelling to American Samoa. It sounded like they were serious - Jean said he had a ticket. The only way I can imagine Rimas getting into that harbor and tying up is if someone charters a boat, motors out and tows him back in. Then they will have to arrange to get him a dinghy and anchor (does he even have an anchor?).

I gots to wonder what's in it for these guys? Santa already knows who's naughty or nice.

....I could imagine for the level that Jean's been involved....it's all soooo unbelievable that he has to see for himself that it's not just some strange internet hallucination he's been having.

....We've been looking at -old- pictures of Rimas for months,,,can you imagine what he looks like now?

Well, I'll have to admit that nobody has ever flown 4,000 miles to fix my boat and buy me some groceries. I really don't get it.
.

...likely Rimas' only hope to 'land' his great great adventure of autonomy...

. ..is if someone 'in the know' actually goes out there,,,

. ......goes out and gives him a tow!

.

. .............Batt: Low indeed!

I would truly like it if no one went to tow him in.

The Pardy's sailed into Pago Pago just fine, as have many others.

It's a piece of cake.

Wake up, little cucaracha, and take responsibility your yourself.

...pointed N,,continueing west as only Rimas can do :mellow:

....I'm glad he stopped trusting the pesky 'shit-stirring' gear..........it must have been really annoying to have the boat pushing into waves like that,,with wind blowing water onto deck.
