Dear Sea Gypsies

Whops. time is flying so fast and soon october was gone and no
newsletter sent out so here it comes a little late.

Still no snow up here, which is just incredible. Should have been half
a meter by now.. but the good thing is: it feels like mid-europe
climate so why migrate to Spain when Spain is coming to us!

Farming season is over, everything which was planted during summer is
in the basement. We got around 300 kg of potatoes which will keep us
going until spring. We have turned into professional dumpster-divers
and find way too much food - so we are getting a little picky - What
about raspberries from Brazil? Its hard to believe so much food who is
just wasted. Someone should do something... ahh. enough political
rambling..

Boatbuilding is going really good. She is happy as a fiddle. Latley
she got shiny bowrollers installed, (both forward and aft), tiller,
and soon to come: bowsprit! We just have to cut down the tree.
Everyday we see changes, and its a good sign... We are making the fat
lady ready for the 7 seas. She will be the strongest boat ever sailing
out there.


Thats all for this late october newsletter, If you are interested in
becoming a seay gypsy, just drop us a line.

Love from Sailing the farm.
A sea gypsy tribe of tomorrow.
