Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip....
If you grew up in the 70's and, maybe like me, Gilligan's Island was a favorite T.V. show as a kid. Then, of course, you must remember the iconic theme song that would start every episode.
This song is carved in my memory and it's still a good sing-along even if I heard it today. The little ditty told a tale of a cast of characters on a 3 hour tour aboard a tiny ship that would be tossed in a rainstorm and land on an uncharted island.
You're probably wondering why in the world I would be dredging up flashbacks of a childhood T.V. show.
Oddly enough, it's what came into my head when thinking about my trip aboard our little boat and motoring down the Mississippi River on one fateful afternoon.
This sailing story also has a Gilligan, that'd be me and a Skipper too, that'd be Mister O. However, our cast of characters didn't sail with us for a 3 hour tour, but rather would be met along the way to our charted destination.
