Helping A Brother Out

I met Howard via VHF radio in my last anchorage on my way back to La Paz from my trip up north. He’s 72 and an amazing guy! Also a fellow Northwesterner from Seattle. We spent about 6 hrs working on his oil cooler for his diesel engine and discussing our philosophies on life which are so similar. I was really needing some companionship that day and Howard needed a little extra muscle so it worked out beautifully. Not to mention Howard bought me lunch at a place that was packed with locals. He and I were the only gringos in the place and the food was superb. Hopefully I’ll run into Howard again somewhere down the road. Check his blog out if you get a chance. He’s doing a wonderful job of capturing the history and sites of all the places he goes on his boat Ravens Dance.

    Told you that you would “pay me back” by helping others! Good going!

    How was the first full winter away from the northwest?
    Happy belated Easter holiday to you and I hope you’re enjoying the Spring time weather in Mexico.
    Prayers for safe sailing always.

      Bart it was wonderful. Almost made me cry one day thinking how much of my life was spent in crappy weather. It got me to where I am today though so no regrets. I feel like I’m in Arizona down here with an ocean now! Really good hearing from you! You’re one of the best people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing in life!

      Warm regards my friend
