Enough viewing options to stop a mule in her tracks….

It’s enough to confuse a mule: where to watch the Lost Sea Expedition series, the documentary about mule Polly’s wagon voyage across America. Here, in terms even mule Polly can understand, is the schedule.

I was aboard as she was fighting for her life. Hurricane force winds threaten to splinter the ketch Windora‘s 40 year old wood hull. She dragged her anchor and wound up on a submerged rock in South Georgia, the Antarctic island. (Vessel “Braveheart” photo)

“Below 40, there is no Law. Below 50, there is no God.” The saying comes from Southern Ocean voyagers. The 40 is the Roaring Forties, the 50 the Furious Fifties. Has it been a year already since I faced shipwreck on a Southern Ocean rock…?

bernie harberts lost sea expedition first gen dodge chrismtas wreath 1992 Dodge adventuree
Merry twisted Christmas. Some grape vine Yule time greetings from the grill of my old Dodge.

This Christmas, mule Polly and I are off the road launching the Lost Sea Expedition TV series. Polly’s munching pasture hay and I twisted up some grape vines for a radiator wreath. In recent days, the wreath’s taken on a nautical tilt from highway speeds in winter weather. It reminds me of a Christmas that went sideways on my old sailboat Sea Bird .

Here’s the nautical version of the old Wise Man story.

bernie harberts raft pickle barrel barrel raft shanty boat adventure
Caaaarefuuuuullll with those scissors. Polly waits patiently as I trim her forelock for Leatherwood Mule Days. From her calm eye, you can tell she knows there’s a head rub waiting when the job is done.

I sharpened the scissors. I caught mule Polly. Then I trimmed her mane and tail and took a swipe at her toes.
Man, she’s as spiffed up as mule can be for Leatherwood Mule Days. I’m already thinking Coon Jump, pasture camping and starlight dancing.

More over here on my LostSeaExpedition.com site.

bernie harberts raft pickle barrel barrel raft shanty boat adventure
Some voyages include dolphins off the bow (Falkland Islands, Southern Ocean). Others entail pickle barrels lashed up under a deck (western North Carolina). Both are fine ways to escape.

Some days, a man dreams of sailing off in a schooner, dolphins dodging the striker stay. Others, he’s content with a pond and a pickle barrel. It’s okay to aim low when you’re shooting for something big.
