Anybody up for a short adventure

I can't take it, the markets are killin' me, so I have to sneak away for a couple of days. I just booked a cheap flight to Grand Bahama on March 20th returning the 24th.

This will be a bare bones excursion. I'm renting a car, buying some groceries and hitting the flats for three days. I know the north side of the island pretty well and will be spending all my time there. I'm not sure if I'll camp or book a room some place very, very cheap.

If anyone is interested let me know. This will be 'roughing it'. I don't think the whole thing will run much more than $500 including flight. Its spaghettio's and rock time (the Acklins guys know what I'm talking about). Times are tough and if you need a cheap bonefish fix this is the way to do it .

Dave, I'm with you in spirit. With the market in the toilet, I'm in the hunter/gatherer mode. Hell, I'm looking at distilling my own single malt, and rolling my own.

I'm not sure the market has bottomed, but if it has, I hope the rebound to previous levels is within my liefspan. See you on the Capethis spring, and Acklins next year.

I'm envious.

Would love to. But I hope I'll be in the middle of Umpqua steelhead then . . . and even tho I'll miss capaconia and big wall this year, I'll look forward to next year. I will get a chance to exercise some abacos bones in April. See you in May. Find a sharp rock.
