RIghto, this has gone on long enough! Pretty sad
when I get excited if the log shows 2 knots. I am 30 mintues (half a degree)
from the equator and the closer I get the slower, it seems, we go. 30 minutes
that took forever. Sounds like a good title for a book and at the moment I
certainly have the time. Pity the talent and inspiration aren't there. Got s
feeling they might help.
In the time its taken me to type this (srop
laughing Jack, I know I type slowly) Farr Gone has actually covered two of the
required thirty minutes to get to the equatir. I realise there is alas, no
black line arounf the planel at the equator but as I slowly have drifted towards
it the crossing has grown in significance for me. I'm also looking forward tto
being under southern sky's. The Southern Cross has been clearly visible for
several nights now.
Nor much else to report, I did watch a movie while
I charged the batteries last night. Bounty Hunter, and it was better than I
