About a year ago I hitched into Bellingham, WA on the same day two tall ships docked and opened for tours. After a wide-eyed, tongue-tied walk around the deck, I asked how one becomes a crew member.
"Just volunteer!"
I signed up for a two week volunteer program which lasted 7 months, sailing from the Canadian border to the Mexican border and back to the bay area. After that I was hooked. I went home to MN in time for a tall ship festival, sailed with one of the boats there, then signed on to a boat based in Milwaukee, and here I am... Enjoy!

I love your signature. I've gotten hit by a rogue wave while on a 92-foot stern trawler, and, yes, the sea fucking wants to eat people alive. it's like the prodigal vagina with teeth. Tallships are definitely in my future.
Have you run into the inland seas (traverse city MI) yet? or her sister boat. my friends used to work as cooks on her.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
