Day 20 to FP - Time, Time, Time

Time: 2330UTC, COG 225T, SOG 6.0kts, Distance Remaining: 180nm

"Ti...i..i...ime is on my side. Yes it is." While the boat is rockin' and
rollin', this song of the Rolling Stones plays in my head. We might be
missing out on a lot of stuff, food, conveniences, joys, and stability
during this movement-rich multiple-week journey, but there is one thing we
have a lot of: time. We have "all the time in the world" and are free to do
what we want, any old time... within the bouncy confinement of a 35 foot
plastic float. How awesome is that?

We have so much time, that we don't ever know what time it really is (which
time zone are we actually in?) , let alone which day of the week, or even
worse, the date. We have gotten used to the year being 2013, but the month
is sometimes vague. Luckily, there are no important dates to remember this
time of the year. Or are there? If so, we'd have to celebrate them another
time, just like many passed birthdays and anniversaries that have piled up
over the ever so busy months. We'll be ready for some kind of triple-stacked
celebration soon!

Anyway, what do we do with all this free, fresh, favorable time? Not much,
really. To find out more, you'll have to read a previous post, called
"Routines". Time for a nap now. :-)
