    Wow! Amazing stats. Truly enjoy reading your blog daily.

    A "close" source has told me that you enjoy and look forward to reading comments from your readers. That 1.4 avg. needs to increase.

    You left out one stat! How many Lobsters consumed? (In news here, price of lobster to go up $13. to $16. /lb. continue to enjoy $0.00/lb.

    Hope you get a shower before your 63 remaining days are up!!(And a shave)

    Safe Sailing.

    I couldn't really detect a beard on you Dan in the last photo. Was the vomiting seasickness or too much of the $1.50 22oz beers in DR? We do like these statistics. The rate per day is really great. I think it might cost us more here in Baja but we're not keeping track. Love, Sandy

    how about stats on countries visited, books read, and fish/lobster caught?
    Is rate per day per person or per boat - either way quite impressive.

    Tails says if you don't shave before you come home he's not going to kiss you.

    To answer some of your questions:

    We don't have exact stats on lobsters and fish consumed, unfortunately. Although no lobsters in over a month (we haven't been lobstering).

    I don't intend to shave until I return to the States, I also don't grow facial hair particularly well, hence the reason you still couldn't detect a beard in the last photo.

    The expenses rate is just for me, though Brad's is probably the same. We're both pretty cheap and do our best to avoid touristy places.

    As far as books, I also can't think of the exact number, but it's probably about 3 times as many as I would have read in college.

    Dan, I like that you said, "would have read in college," as if you never went.
