MW Mobile Blog

For friends, family and the random search engine visitor. This blog started as an experiment in mobile blogging from my Palm TREO 600 700 Prē HTC Evo,Samsung 5. Now it serves as a simple repository of favorite activities. Expect bad golf, good fishing, great sailing, eating, drinking, adventure travel, occasional politics and anything else I find interesting along the way including, but not limited to, any of the labels listed here...

1946 Miles to Go

6:30pm PDT
13 knots of wind
TWA = 60

Heading = 10

Just short of 24 hours and 150 miles out of Hawaii. Not bad for spending the first 12 with a single reefed main.

Woke up early this morning and rigged the hand line while Mike was still asleep. Had hoped to catch a fish before he even woke up, but my normal success rate remains constant. Have now been dragging two lures for 8 hours with no luck.

All onboard are slowly getting used to life at sea. Last nights 18 knot winds have changed to today's 12 knot winds and that's making the process pretty easy. No seasick crew to date. Just several very sleepy ones!!

Making great progress. More reports later.
