Pompous version:

I, myself and me, are going sailing on the weekend.

As a True Sailor, I let Bob and the Weather Guy, (plus a few mechanics 
in what's going to become the eastern part of the EU), determine when 
(or if at all) I come home.

The Non-Pompous version:

Not that I'd think I'm the center of the world. It's more like this:

   - I like to write serious and thought-out posts.
     (Hell, I even proof-read some of them!)
     This might arouse the same mode in (unfortunately
     _only_ some of) the folks who write the replies.

   - Now, if some folks have really seen a lot of effort
     to write worthwhile replies, then they'd be sad
     to find out that I don't reply to them. Right?

So, hold your horses! I'll eventually get to your replies, and make my 
best to pay the attention deserved.

I estimate the sailing to take anywhere between 5 and 20 days. If the 
latter, then it'll obviously take some time to get to "your" post.

:-)

Please hold thumbs for me, the weather on the Baltic Sea has not looked 
exactly sun-shiny lately. I'll sail right trough it, from Copenhagen 
(Denmark) to Helsinki (Finland). (Not to mention the ice bergs.)

I'm jealous! Have a great trip! And please, slow down at night in the iceberg fields!

Gee, thanks!

Yeah. Although we'll spend most of the nights at exotic East Baltic ports (former USSR), doing potentially dangerous but definitely "educating" foraging...

Going to Latvia perhaps? My mother is Latvian - her parent left during WWII and eventually made it to the US. I've never been to Estonia and I've only taken a train through Lithuania so I can't speak much about them. Riga is a very nice city, though. It's amazing how the Baltic states have come so far since the USSR days. Hope you have a good time! -Ben

Shit!

I missed the boat. :-(

The guys had good winds, and I couldn't get earlier than planned to 
Copenhagen. Arrrghh.

Well, if I get this summer to the "New countries", I'll put up some 
pictures for you guys to see.

PS, this confirms my superstition. Anything you look forward to, don't 
_ever_ tell anybody, or it'll go away! Guess while I'm at it, might as 
well start believeing in Bob, the Devil, and life after death, or at 
least life in hell/heaven. (Except that I can't imagine not getting 
bored to death after the first 5 trillion years there.)

Congratulations! You were the first one to catch that! I actually only added the two words when proofreading -- couldn't resist. :-)
