14-year-old going to sea

Postby chugach mtn boy » Tue Jul 27, 2010 4:49 pm

Here we go again:

MIDDELBURG, Netherlands - A Dutch court cleared the way Tuesday for 14-year-old Laura Dekker to embark on a risky attempt to become the youngest person to sail solo around the world, an adventure that could begin in the next two weeks. (By Mike Corder, AP)

Hey DMT, better hurry it along with Abby's book--she's going to be old news! Your reading list is growing ...

More seriously, this youngster's training is discussed here http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/38428648/ns/sports-othersports/
and sounds sort of good--until you realize that her dad was set to sent her out last year without that training.

Did you create a thread in News, just to pick on Dingus?
Why do you want to do that for?

No, Lolli, the first post was a playful poke. I'd actually be happy to read DMT's thoughts on this. But he responded with quite a different tone so, there we are.

What happened to the DMT and Lolli that we used to enjoy so much?

Somebody toast this thread--it went sour.

No, please don't
I missed your answer when I answered Jason
but, you know, that my question was just plain, without any meanings underneath
and I mean what I said to Jason

well, what happened...?
Can't answer for Dingus, I guess he's busy or not in the mood or whatever
but for me?
I'm burned

:D
Burnt child shuns the fire

I can't tell anymore.

No worries, peace!
