Good question. I thought with getting here a couple of days before the poker run I would see the sights and run with the boats going back to Puerto Rico on Monday, secure the boat and fly home. David ( OSO Expat ) has been talking some sense into me and may leave the boat here, go home for a while and return to the Islands. Will get it figured out in the next few days but I can tell you, I'm liking the BVI !

Pic below is Jay and I having dinner with Daviid ( Expat ) and Christanne at David's Saba Rock Resort. They have been great hosts and the hospitality is much appreciated.

Don't let them kid you. They came through some of the worse weather I have seen here in a long time. Major squalls. No visibility. Nasty. Very few people could navigate a boat through that to a place they have never been. My hat's off to them.

We will be drinking Painkillers all weekend to that. We need an excuse.

God, this is an AWESOME thread!!

Bob, have you thought of compiling the pics and your "memoirs", if you will, of this trip of a lifetime and thowing them all into a published book? I don't know how many people have ever done this trip in a performance/offshore powerboat but I'm sure you could count them on one hand. I think a book with pics and the tails of all you've met and things you've done would be an awesome read (as evident by this thread).

Good job hooking up with David. Cool guy and seems to run a tight ship over there!

I assume your'e down there for the poker run?

Keep up the great work...Stay safe!
