Rumour has it…

Rumour has it that I was sailing this yacht last month on the Baltic Sea and that they have started to build a very similar version for a third attempt at a solo non stop circumnavigation.  We have learned so much in design and performance that it makes no sense not to try again.

How to lose 16 pounds in five weeks

To all those having problems shedding weight, I will now disclose my secret method. You can lose 16 pounds in five weeks by eating and drinking all you can – fast food, quality food – anything but stay well hydrated with water, chocolate milk, ginger tea, Gatorade etc. During this time get on a good bike. Find some hills, some head winds and just do 100 miles a day for 30 days. Force yourself to add on three days rest. I promise you after 33 days your pants won’t fit and you will sleep well and look great.

Day 28 – Rest Day Pensacola

After 27 days including two days rest we reach Florida and a days rest! Catherine is off running as she has the Kentucky Marathon coming up and I am lying in bed resting my butt and limbs.  Did a 112 miles yesterday.  We have shaved some miles off the route by excluding ourselves to busier highways rather than some ridiculous meandering through state parks and poorly maintained but quieter back roads. We have seen great scenery – now it’s about getting to St. Augustine.

Bikes will be serviced today and we have an early big dinner tonight and an early start tomorrow.

There were times when I wondered if I could go every mile. Now I have no doubts barring an incident we will finish next Tuesday.   My son Stan has sagged Hilmir Augustsson and my wife Catherine me. Can’t thank them enough.
