Aviate. Navigate. Communicate.


Dear friends, just a note to let you know I’m taking care of my father right about now. He’s okay, but there are some “logistics” we are dealing with.

Aviate. Navigate. Communicate.

There’s a saying in aviation: Aviate. Navigate. Communicate. The order in which you need to do things.

First, ya gotta fly the plane. (Or in the case of my fellow #HowNotToSailers, pilot the boat.)

Next, you need to make sure you know where you are. (A side benefit if which is not running into things or crashing.)

Then, you need to let the folks following your progress know where you are and what your plans are.

So, where are we?

My plans are that, more than almost anything, I want to put out Ep. 5 of How Not To Sail. I know what it’s about, and I know basically what I need to do to get it produced.

I’m looking forward to Ep. 5, and unlike the “me” that was experiencing this story in January, I actually know where I’m going at this point! (That means Eps. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and beyond.)

However, my #1 priority right now is Dad.

So as soon as I can chip away at whatever remains of the 20-24 hours or so required for scripting, recording editing and publishing Ep. 5, I will be on it. I hope that’s within the next week or so…but I’ve been hoping that for a couple of weeks.


I *very* much appreciate you listening, and your patience as I work on the one project that has priority over the podcast.

With much gratitude,
