It has become less complicated than everyone may possibly visualize but only in case you are acquainted using the authorized, non- vicious equivalent of individuals depending city prescription drugs.

I have got to are actually exactly there, residing and clear-headed to accomplish exactly that which I received to achieve to carry on, especially now when we uncover ourselves in a economic decline, surviving in this kind of economic emergency situation, I prefer to accrue every one of the complete means! IHence from illegal prescription drugs, my transition to legal buds . I am not any longer a narcotics consumer now and which is a accomplishment I like to brag of.

Although currently in 10th place we believe you're the 1st crew in the 'Brand New Build' category ... can anyone out there confirm/dispute please?!

From flat pack to Antigua and all held together with sicoflex!

183 miles to go, or about 5 days, or about 60 hours rowing each, or about 70,000 strokes each ... stop reading this and row!!!

Hi guys the green dot register says 21 miles to go to the 500 marker you should do that soon.
Altering the trim with the food stock could make for a vertical position to celebrate, as you pass the mark.
I know you keep mentioning about the birds - hope they don't have the same 'impact' as pigeons!!!
Great to hear that the Doctors is freeing up and that you 2 are getting better, it's all that condensed milk. Good idea on the 3 hour sleep plan - or is it just another temporal shift in time. Watch out for a bloke in a blue Police box.

A few days on the Ocean left to thank both your bodies and spirits to have acheived a bearable effort for a so long period.

Endorphin slowly and continuesly created by rowing may helped your bodies?

But concerning your spirits?

Thanks for the reasons you are rowing.

Jean-Noël, 15 Mar 2010 21:05 GMT

Lia and Mick, I am sure anything I write is probably a cliche, but I stand in awe of your grit, determination, perseverance.... and shear bloody-mindedness to undertake this challenge. I almost feel from your blog that you have undertaken two journeys - over the ocean, and within yourselves. Started the race as a team, spent some time alone mid atlantic, (still not sure how it's possible on a boat that size!), now set to finish as a team again. Truly the hardest path. However, the race isn't over yet, and I gather you've got nothing left to lose - so keep rowing, pencil legs! Amazing effort guys - KEEP GOING!!!!
Caleb Pearce, 15 Mar 2010 21:01 GMT

Hi Pete

Found this poem and thought it most appropriate:-
There's nothing to fear --- you're as good as the best,
As strong as the mightiest, too.
You can win in every battle or test;
For there's no one just like you.
There's only one you in the world today;
So nobody else, you see,
Can do your work in as fine a way:
You're the only you there'll be !

So face the world, and all life is yours
To conquer and love and live:
And you'll find the happiness that endures
In just the measure you give;
There's nothing too good for you to possess,
Nor heights where you cannot go:
Your power is more than belief or guess ---
It is something you have to know.

There is nothing to fear --- you can and you will.
For you are the invincible you.
Set your foot on the highest hill ---
There's nothing you cannot do.

-- Author Unknown

Stay safe and strong
Lots of love

Probablly when you read this message you will have cracked the 500 miles to go. I will take this opportunity to congratulate you on the achievment (in advance). May the Angels and the Lord for ever present with you continue to see you both through to the finish post. I assume Norman that the prayers offered for your fingers has had good effect as you have not commented since. James we will continue prayers for your back as this is now improving. As you said you now hear planes overhead which means civilisation nearing so as we all know on land there is the likely-hood of roadworks in civilised areas, so watch out for the red & white cones ahead depicting SEA WORKS = holes in the sea and ramps but lets hope there are no diversions round the Cape. God bless you both
