whee!!! Liveblogging from surf city

Working a raised-deck barge, you get used to the water being a good deal below you. We're running down the Chesapeake right now, getting bounced pretty good. I had forgotten how it becomes impossible to touch type due to a skittering keyboard!

We're loaded to the marks- stuffed full of oil, and riding low in the water. There is lots of flying spray, and boarding seas are washing down the deck. It feels like we're flying- the sensation of increased speed is uncanny. I feel like a sailor again. First time in a long time. Feels good, man.

Are you coming to Baltimore, next to Hospital ship? I can pick you up if you need groceries.

Wow, thank you for the offer, Joe! We were there this morning, but I'm going home again on Wed, so I'm OK grocery-wise. Thanks again for the offer!
