wow, not sure if that counts, but end of the month i will hit that figure for number of days fulltime/non-stop on the boat cruising ...but man, i wished i was hiting that figure for windsurf/kitesurf/surf logs!!!

maybe i should start loging again!!

but hey, now so disconnected from the "unreal world"...here now very real and allright, but still having awakening illusions, ...sometimes!

thanks for initiating the introspection>>>!

I thought I would revisit this....the doldrums have been significant this year and it's really not one for me personally to remember due to personal injuries, ongoing life and body issues, employment stagnation. I note tho that others are no longer posting session logs and that's kinda sad....for me.... Selfishly I hope for those....when they don't happen it's a deterioration of many things I enjoyed: reading that at least others are having some noteworthy experiences, maybe fun, maybe getting worked, learning new things, pushing their limits :D

It keeps up the stoke at times when you are down or feeds it to new heights when indeed you got to be part of a great day :!:

I suppose it's an individual choice and eats some of your valuable time....as everything seems to chip away at our free time these days....understood. I hope to keep posting my session logs, it's kinda like putting away your gear, brushing your teeth, mowing the lawn. Sometimes you enjoy writing, sometimes it's a chore....in the end Nike's most significant phrase applies to me :idea:

I too enjoy reading people's logs... sometimes similar experiences are shared with a log and people can interact even if they only saw each other for a moment on the water... or reading logs you can relive those great days of sailing..

looking at my history I'm just over a full year of days on the water! 368 days.. this after a major knee injury and other things life throws at you it's great to read the logs again and see the progression or stoke!

these doldrums can f off anytime soon..
