All Quiet on the Painting Front

Not a lot of progress here in the Geek's Lair on my new All Quiet on the Martian Front (AQMF) toys.  As a present, my wife signed me up for a week long Performance Sailing course over in Annapolis which has proven to be both very fun and very tiring - we're out on the water about 9 hours a day zooming through Annapolis and out into the Chesapeake.  My son derisively calls the whole thing "Sailing camp for old folks".

About all I can do when I get home is stumble into my hammock and read some of the rules.  There's an "action shot" of me contemplating the rules.  I think I managed to stay awake for at least 5 minutes after the picture was taken.  I'm becoming very excited about the game and there seems to be a lot of buzz building about it in our odd little community


Here are some links to some early reviews:

Gotta run - we're doing "Man-Overboard" drills today.  The school uses J-80 sailboats as trainers which are nicely sized at 8 meters and relatively easy to sail.  They're very, very fast!

I must admit I do like the vehicles, have a good one and keep dry!
