No, he hasn’t sunk the boat. Update from the BWW.

July 22, 2011

Hello followers of Murre and Randall!

This is BWW. No, Murre and Randall haven’t sunk to the bottom of the Ocean.

Please don’t panic.

Randall  shimmied up the mast today so he could get a cell signal (what a man does for love) and let me know that his computer is broken. This means no email, which means no blog updates until he gets to a computer again. The  good news is I’m heading to Tahiti in two weeks and will have a shiny new laptop in my suitcase for him. Don’t you feel bad for me? I HAVE to go to Tahiti to deliver a laptop. Life is just hard.

From what I can tell Randall is finding the Tuamotu Islands very odd. “There are only palm trees and hermit crabs. It takes me about 15 minutes to walk from one side of the island to the other. And it only takes me 15 minutes because I have to hack my way through the jungle. If there was a path it would take me about 90 seconds. I’m the only one here.”

He’s off to the next island tomorrow where there is, apparently, a village. Maybe that’s where the cell phone signal came from.

I’ll update here (sorry not as poetically as Randall) as I hear new news.

More to come in August.

    Thanks much, BWW, for the welcome update. Glad to hear all is well out there in the Tuamotos. When you get to Tahiti, say hello to Skipper Randall from his loyal “fans.” Also, be sure to try the poisson cru from the food trucks in Papeete town square. Avoid the pizza.

    note to Randall – from Tony and Connie on Sage. We depart for the Marshalls in 5 days. Will continue to follow your supremely well written log but internet connection for the next 6 mths will be dismal for us. You get a red badge of courage for your single handled efforts in the Tuamotos. All the best and hope to see you in an anchorage somewhere someday.

    Kudos to Randallson Crusoe for keeping his fan club on the edge of their seats! I think he’ll be stepping back into the 19th century as soon as the cell phone gives up the ghost…wow, what an adventure.
