What! You mean I can't almost walk to the restaurant. So much for tradition!

The misses Admiral Ellen is being deployed to St Croix after the new year.  I may be sailing solo.

   That's fine. Although we'd want the two of you there, we'll settle for just you! If you behave!!   Now to discuss the time. I'd originally suggesting 6pm but this is not set in concrete. Anyone want earlier like 5pm or in our language 1700 hours local?

Lemme see... 51.6 miles. Should only take about 17 hours and 1 minute (when I was 18!). Or I could save an hour via I-195 if I don't get run over. Hey, it is the skinniest part of NJ.

Good morning Bob, Marty, Allen, and the rest of the crew..   sitting here in  sub zero temps in Maine.. thought I would check in to see what was new on the site.   I'm afraid that we will miss yet another mid winter gathering - just a bit too far to travel.   We are in Maine full time now, and loving life,  meeting new friends but missing old ones like you guys!   If I am lucky, I will get to bring the boat up here this coming season - it sure would look good on a mooring in Robinhood cove!    Best wishes for the new year -  if anyone has the opportunity to come visit in Georgetown ( near Bath )  feel free to get in touch!    Have a wonderful time at the gathering..   jt

  JT...so nice to hear from you! I figured Maine was treating you well. We sure miss you and would love to travel up there but life seems to be getting in the way of- Life!! Although we haven't seen you and Janet in quite a while, we still love your friendship and look forward to the next time, however far into the future it may be, we can share a meal, some drinks and lots of laughs!!
  Although we'll miss you at the Mid Winter, in one sense you will be quite present. Janet has emailed you credit card info so a big thank you is in order! But being the gracious guy that I am, I will split the tip with you!!!
   Hope Christmas and 2017 were good for you and accept my best wishes for a happy and contented 2018!!!
Bob23 in snowy NJ!

Attenzione compagni:  As the self appointed czar and founder of the MWG, I am hereby exercising my right to make additions and/or changes as the whims of my somewhat unstable mind dictate!! Can we change the time for the MWG which is to be held on January 20th in the year of our Lord two thousand and eighteen from 1800 hours local time to 1700 hours local? Please?? Pretty please?? With rum on top????  I think this will work out better for everyone and it will enable a distinguished guest from afar and his lovely bride to participate. Whatcha all think??
