      lol. Good stuff. One of the more embarrassing things that ever happened to me was i was trying to talk to/check out this woman next to me on a treadmill at the gym. I turned to make eye contact and slipped face forward on the tredmill. It messsd my face up pretty good and hurt my ego even more lol.
      Why were you getting drunk for a workout?

        Its quite a little ways and your off shore a bit and a fog rolled in and I talking fast... Now I was chasing bouys for navigation Within minutes I can no longer see them ....We had to stop all I had was a small hand held GPS maybe a 2 inch screen and I'm trying to figure out just where the **** I am..
        People are stating to get a little nervous and to lighten things up I shouted out is anybody scared yet ?? Truth be told I was scared and feeling super responsible to everybody in safely .. As luck would have in about 20 or 30 mins the fog started lift and I started moving .. There is a bell buoy off popham we'd go aways stop and listen and eventually got within ear shot .. What a relief got into the Kennebec and everything cleared out ..

        Soon after that I got myself a much better GPS 6" screen with tracking.. I'd always track myself after that if I lost sight navigation I could follow my track back no problem as long as I didn't lose Satellite which is pretty dependable... that **** happened to me more than once man there are so many things ...
        Mostly boating is dangerous because there are so many people who go out there without a clue on the simple rules of navigation. Even in a bay or lake you need to be careful some idiot playing with his new toy doesn't try to kill you.

          If you're out on a boat, let's say a medium sized boat that holds 10 people or so, a fishing/recreational boat.....and suddenly the boat springs a leak....whatever reason....now the boat is literally sinking. What do you do? Call the Coast Guard? Put on a life jacket?
          Are there instant inflatable life boats? Do they have oars? What about small outboard motors?
          This is the part I'd be buggin out about.....I can swim but I'd be tired after 10 minutes......and then it'd be farewell and ado to ye fair spanish ladies....

          I mean, what's the backup plan??
          It depends on the boat. Mine has life jackets, but I only use it on a lake big lake, but still well within swimming distance of land for anyone wearing a life jacket. If I were to take it out to the ocean or the great lakes I would probably get an emergency inflatable stowed on there somewhere.

            The single most important thing is that they will see you sober, relaxed, and standing proud of yourself... and, you should be.
            I managed to not interact with a soul and was seen to be there by the boss, mission accomplished.

                They didn't have CDs when you were 22, they had records and 8-tracks.

                  LOL, me too. Based on the way I woke up once, I got drunk, blacked out, did naked mud wrestling and then put my clothes back on without cleaning off the mud...wth. Nobody I went out with the night before had any clue how I got covered with mud, last they saw I was heading to bed around 2. Where do you find naked mud wrestling at around 3 am on a Tuesday in the middle of bum**** PA anyway?

                      very true... Long time ago I was a bit of a loose canon no doubt just add alcohol... Thank god I never hurt anybody ... I have had some sort of boat since I was old enough to paddle one ... The one I have now is just to much for me anymore... I love driving it , me and a tank of gas it will hit 55 mph fairly easy just need room and half descent conditions ... Most times , people aboard , I run it up to 25 to 35 just cruse ..

                        It's probably rampant.

                            Readers Digest Version: My friend is having a party. About 11pm a guest tells my friend Kelly that there is a naked guy sleeping behind the couch in the den. Kelly says, ďare his clothes rolled up in a ball being used as a pillow? If so, thatís just Mike, heíll get a second wind, and be back out here drinking in a couple of hours. Around 1:30am, I wake up, walk straight outside and dive into the pool, come back in, put my clothes back on and rejoin the party.

                            When I come back in the girl is paying off a lost $10 bet to Kelly who is laughing saying itís the closest thing to a sure thing sheís ever bet on.
