Sharks, Lions and Aqua-Pimps

July 9th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Fresh local coffee steaming from the french press signals the start of another day here in the Galapagos. P-Kiddy forces himself on me demanding his morning chow so I oblige. I look across the harbor at “Cannons” for signs of a swell and shake the morning funk off. The temperature here is just about perfect. […]

Sultans of Scrope

May 24th, 2008 · No Comments

Never a dull moment in the day in the life of these four Sultans of Scrope. Our days are filled with peril, carnage and the occasional all day internet-a-thon. Our nights stretch into mornings as we swagger through hostel-hippies, traveling students and hip-shaking, merengue mamasitas. Cooling down after a rump-rubbing churn through the dance-floor is […]

Hey there everyone. I just thought I’d let you all know that I added a “Photos” page to the blog so that you can see the photos we’ve posted in the past. We’re in Bocas Del Toro making the most out of a small, but fun swell and sampling the culture in this unique place. […]

Salty Seamen

panama-passage If you click this link, I guarantee the video that loads will induce knee slapping laughter. I tried to motivate the crew to shoot self-portraits twice a day. One at night and once during the daylight hours for every day we were sailing to Panama.  Not everyone fully cooperated so there’s a bit of […]

With the winds backing off, the stank level steadily increases due to a lack of AC aboard the Natural Mystic. We stew in our own juices as the tropical heat and mind numbing humidity bakes us into a frenzy. We’ve found refuge in the familiar comforts of the Caribbean Sea again. After our adventures to […]

Now I see this sliver moon disappear Retreating from a radiant dawn Blazing along Running down this great frontier This group of frothy adventurers was primed and amped for the Caribbean Sea so we set-off bright […]

Squeaky Clean

April 27th, 2008 · 3 Comments

The day started early for me today. Since our free rum party/WresleMania adventures Friday night I’ve been on the DL nursing a bruised liver. So after a solid 10 hour sleep 2 nights in a row, I was recharged and fired up. All morning I watched the armada of multi-million dollar machines parade through the […]

Pee-Skidzy Geyser

April 24th, 2008 · No Comments

Our furball companion has been real vocal since we arrived in Antigua. Since we are moored in Falmouth Harbor, he doesn’t have the luxury of getting off the boat whenever he fancies like in St. Maarten. Well, he’s been letting us know just how much that bothers him whenever we take off. So we thought […]

We’re still finding time to skate. Once arriving in Montsarrat we soon found this little gem we called Tetanus Skatepark. A wrecked barge of gnarled, twisted, rusted steel that moves a little with the swell. I’m pretty sure we were the first ones to sk8 there and it was pretty rough. It was quite a […]

Fluid Dreams

April 20th, 2008 · No Comments

With a bit of full moon fever last night, we took to the water to enjoy some artificial surf made possible by the red rocket. Now that we’ve said our goodbyes and we’re ready to sail onward, I can unwind. Leaving St. Maarten is hard after all the great times I’ve had here. I can’t […]
