I PROTEST! Why does Steph get to enjoy sun and surf for a week while I sit here with a sore moouth from 4 teeth extractions and a bone graft this morning. :(
:smarty:

Hope you're having lots of fun Stepinany. What I remember of it from '89, it's a beautiful place with much to see and usually too little time to see it all. :)

Glad you could find a way to post pictures too. When should we expect some hot bikini shots? ;)

All that sunshine bothers me, not enough clouds. What is wrong with the weather out there? :crazy:

Just aint right. No white, brown or grey. I hope Steph isn't traumatized by all that when she finally gets to leave. Poor thing :bawling:

I'd say plenty of medicinal alchohol may be required in order to avoid any trauma.

Why Rick. Why in the wide, wide world of sports would poor, suffering Steph have an upside down umbrella in a glass :question: Is she stranded? is she trying to use the upside down umbrella to gather rain so she doesn't die of thirst? Do we need to get Paul on the phone and organize a search party and have him fly us out to look for our lost Stephy in the South Pacific????......I'm in :grin:

I can co-ordinate the at sea phase, Scott you take care of the land phase. We'll need a number of volunteers. this will be a big search area.

I hope Paul's boss is understanding and will realize we may tie up the King Air for a month or so. Got a gas card Jimmy?

We may have to raid the bank account. Wonder how much fuel an King Air burns an hour.

And I was all set to complain about our recent snow, til I read about your "oral adventures" David!

Wow! Steph in paradise, you in dental hades, me (and probably most of Ohio!) in snow...

this is getting painful!

Hawaii is a long hop. How seaworthy is a King Air? Does it come equiped with paddles? :question:

I believe Rusty knows how to navigate by the stars. Just a thought.

We could put pontoons on it. I have plenty of sail canvas, being an ex-navy man. You never know when you'll need something.

I'm reassured. You've thought it all through. I'm good with a paddle and have a strong back. I'm in. :jump:

Scott,
The lack of any posts from dear Steph would indicate she is in trouble ... we may have to get a posse together. :grin:

BTW, I have a paddle I've used in the past to navigate a certain creek ... :lol: ... I'll bring it! :smirk:

If Dave was there in '89, I'm sure the State Police still remember him. He could make a few phone calls and get the search started. Or at least have the police comandeer a floor in one of the beach-front hotels for us. :bounce: :coolnod:

Yeah, I can - I used to live for the time Zubenelgenubi was one of the 57 Nav stars...

At the moment I'm rockin' and rollin' in a Gulfport, MS RV park after a great dinner with Scott Beith and Teri, due to a severe thunderstorm overhead (said to be capable of producing "golfball-sized" hail...and I left my clubs at home.) Tornado reported west, headed NE; should pass around 20 miles north. With this wind, I'm glad StaRV II is a burly little motorhome, weighing about 5 tons more than a similar-size travel trailer.
