Missing Luggage and Mega Yachts

PAPEETE, TAHITI - Thanks to everybody who's donated money in the last couple days. I've just re-read my last post; I didn't realize how much I was whinning about our little situation with money.

What we need more than money at the momoment though is to find our luggage. It seems to have sailed away without it. The boat we were on has left it's parking spot with all our worldly possessions. After one full day of looking we've come up empty handed. Not to worry, the Captain couldn't have gone too far and he know's that he's got our bags. It's a pity though as I was really hoping to change my underwear and get out of the jeans I've been wearing for 3 days now. Who wears jeans in Tahiti?

We've been passing time hanging out at the local Marina, drooling at some very large yachts; We're confident an opportunity will surface sooner rather than later. And we've also found our friend Tom, who's in a similar situation after leaving his boat in the Marquesas. We've been following him off and on since Northern Mexico.

Good to hear that you guys have reunited with Tom! Good luck with finding the luggage and getting out of Tahiti.

g'day sailors...
so glad to hear you've landed safely on land, albeit a little strapped for cash, and not to mention a little hairy!

well i hope you manage to make your way off the island (although i'm sure the island paradise isn't too bad). big hugs to you both, and one for Tommy too.

Hello from the Yukon!
Just thought about you guys the other day.
Am excited to see that you're still going, keep up the good work!
You've almost tempted me to leave exotic Dawson City, but my current (and rather constant), Yukon-style blood alcohol content restricts any serious thoughts about travelling.....until winter sets in, that is.
Anyway, I've sponsored you a big ol' 15 bucks, 'cause i live so far away and am now rolling in the dough (good ol' Parks Canada).

- Allie (I'm assuming you remember me from Panama City.....how many chicks from the Yukon can you have met?)

p.s. Brian - Desmond Decker died a couple weeks ago...and my mom does have the "The Harder They Come" record. Yay (about the latter)!
