A Good Question...

Hunter S. Thompson is one of my favorite authors.  He's got lots of great quotes and books out there.  His most famous book, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was turned into a rather lackluster film, as was another great novel of his The Rum Diary.  However, my personal favorite is Fear and Loathing in America (Gonzo Letters) which is a massive volume of personel letters written by Hunter himself (he, knowing his genius, carbon copied everything he ever wrote), from reeming out L.L Bean for false advertising to seething letters to politicians... from sarcastic ramblings to his publishers to rum-fueled diatribes to his 'lawyer' - these letters do not disappoint.  He is caustic, wickedly funny, politically fueled and perfectly irreverent.  I should warn you, his books are rife with foul language and some recreational drug use.  But we're all sailors, right?

Anyway, this is all besides the point.  The point of this post really is to ask the question:  Is your life a living adventure, or are you tucked securely into shore?

If you want more great quotes on pretty pictures, be sure to stop by our Tubmlr Page which I have had for some time, but am breathing new life into daily.  A new creative outlet for me...

Happy weekend everyone!

Love,
Brittany, Scott & Isla

Currently on shore but just got older model IP38. We close on her next week! So excited. Next step is to sell the house (spring 2013), sell or store the remaining worldly possessions. Go date is currently Thanksgiving 2014, sooner if things line up properly.

You guys were one the first blogs we started to follow and the first to show us that dreams become realities only with effort.

Soon to be S/V Zen
