The Mayan apocalypse just occurred today.

left just Trader Joes in Castro Valley and it was more like a party with all the free cheese and crackers and some hot food for tasting. everybody was awake and alert, but nothing like what you are reporting. so is this a time zone phenomena ?

Now here is a very cool way to enjoy a fast gas boat. I would call this, Let Your Horses Run Free. I think you will enjoy this. This is exactly what I hope to be doing with my ship. I will have lots of room on an open lake and sail with a chase boat for videos. If you ever get to run like this you would never just run in tight circles again.

Do be sure that your boat's pilot has "blinders", or that the model is run back from the
person steering the "chase" boat. A group making such a run in the UK ran over a kayaker.

The kayaker saw them coming, and started yelling and waving, but no one was looking ahead.
Apparently they were all watching the model boat running along side.

Polar bear time!

Guys,
Thanks for all the RSVPs....nothing is required of you here. This is just a last minute update for Tuesday's weather forecast-SUNNY 57* wind 7NE

I hope you enjoyed the photographic art work for the POLAR BEAR notices throughout this process. Over the years, I've experimented with superimposing pictures to create new images. The process is made vastly easier with the MAC and the word processor-pages. Please enjoy the imbedded imagaes. Creating a visual sub-text is enjoyable while trying to send a message here to fellow skippers-Thanks for looking.

"FIRE (RESCUE)" and 443 will be on the lake for New Year's Day'a power-walk-around & afternoon beer-can events. Hope we have a nice turnout kicking 2013 off to a good start.

Cheers! Onward<

The Buoys seem to be working (or at least absorbing some of the impact....) Please play safe & slow down a bit 'round the buoys

.

Plenty more where these came from....
