BRB, taking a road trip with the Family B. Day one saw us from MA to VA. Aside from a 120-mile detour courtesy of someone who played bumper cars with a tank truck, all went well... thus far. Tomorrow sees us, hopefully, from VA to TN.
I am Paul B, and I spend most of my life at sea. Ships, Science, commercial fishing, marine biology and (mostly) true stories of life among the best and the worst people in the world, the United States Merchant Marines. You'll find it here, maybe. You'll definately find rants, raves and discussion on the process of climbing the hawsepipe into an officer's job on a merchant ship.
