wow, I'm here in downtown Shanghai working at joint venture USA/Chinese Hopsital and have just been in my apartment viewing the National Geographic channel by satelite, when I Saw a documentary about your crossing to Ireland and France in your raft. Awesome... so it would seem that there are also other resourceful people in the world who can also do amazing things with a number 8 bit of wire. This is a saying that us kiwis have about our ability to make anything with almost nothing and even problem solve. ;) I am definately interested in learning more about your project and will spend more time perusing your website. Meanwhile I wanted to let you know that you all have the right attitude... Life is for living and you only get out that which you are prepared to put into it. So live like there is no tomorrow... :) Don't be surprised if I apply to sign up for your adventures... so if you are passing nearby China/Thaland/Australia or NZ anytime... regards [email protected]

Greetings to all aboard Absolute Aabsolution. We met you while we were in Isla Mujeres. We lived aboard Shadowfax and became accustomed to Shawn on the radio regularly asking if anyone wanted to adopt a rescued kitten. Please let us know your current port. Kind regards, Tom, Tracy, Alan, Leslie [email protected]

Hello! I met you all circa 1990, when you had to dock in Port Jeff, NY, for repairs. I was a reporter for a local paper and interviewed The Flying Neutrinos; Moorings are a premium in PJ and you showed your appreciation to the village by performing. Very memorable. Glad you're well. Mike Harrison

I was in Key West in March, and I missed you! Saddens me. You inspire all us lubbers, stuck where the surf doesn't sound and the corn grows high. Perhaps I can join you one day... Bob (I wanna be a neutrino - wild and free! passing through mass with no effect on me!)

Stayed on the raft in 1978. Ran into the ammended crew again in the early 80's. What happened to Jessica, Marissa and Donna{I think that was her name. Todd's mother?}I am very happy to hear of odd and Ingrid's musical sucsesses. Fiona, my daughter who used to play with Jess sometimes when you played, is in college. She has one more year before she starts med school. We are on the gulf coast of S.W. Fl.Would love an update, Sandy(A former N.O. street musician)

Captain Betsy and Shawn: Greetings from Oklahoma. I trust that your journey to Arizona and back to Vermont was safe and left you with fun and interesting memories. I look forward to notes fom your next adventure and will start working on the necessary to become able crew at some future date. I still have difficulty believing that I would run into a floating neutrino named Shawn who is from Walden, VT in the middle of nowhere Oklahoma at a Texaco station in the rain. As Dean Martin would say..."Ain't that a kick in the head?" Best wishes for safe travels, The Other Shawn from Vermont.

My name is Andris Bors and I write to ask about joining your crew of explorers of freedom. On November 10th, 2003, my friends and I were in Key West, Florida, for a small 2-week camping and day sailing vacation. I have regularly visited and lived on Christmas Tree Island since the early 70t's. I came equipped with 2 small sailboats and all camping equipment necessary to enjoy a comfortable stay on the deserted island just off from where I spotted your big catamaran with your web-site so nicely painted on the side. I have always been a traveler; born in Latvia during WWII, I have grown up in USA and since traveled throughout Europe, the Nearest, North Africa, Canada, Mexico, and sailed the Bahamas in my 32' two masted proha outrigger canoe. Now I have become interested in the possibility of moving to Suriname on the north of South America. As a former colony of Holland, this country fascinates me with the promise of a new freedom to be created and developed free from the overt domination of the industrial giants who see no profit in this remote jungle land. Anyway just thought I would write, thank you for your time, hope to hear from you soon, Andris

-----> {con't.} Hey, its Mark again. I forgot two things: #1 - the boat looks much better in person: for anyone who has not seen it, it doesnt always look like the first image you see when you go to this site. It is actually a pretty tidy looking cat moored over between Sunset Key & Christmas Tree Island. #2 - If you are planning on anymore trips thru the Caribbean or Central/South America waters, please consider me for crew. I am 29 years old, valid passport but never had an opportunity to use it. My dream is to go from Cuba to Aruba & visit EVERY island in between, then go back to the one I like the best and stay awhile. My contact info is in the previous Guest book entry. Thanks! ^_^ HAPPY NEW YEAR! ^_^

Please, do not take any dogs with you in the future. They need more space and activities. Long journeys like these are not the place for them. Good luck for you all in the future, anyway! A-L

Dear Captain Betsy: My brothers friend came home to his wife and my God-son last friday. He was 32 years young, a good father and husband and Patriot. He loved life. You were right, after all. I apologize for being sharp with you out of anger for losing a brother so kind and gentle, as Frankie. I found the tape that Frank made of a National Geographic special about The Floating Neutrinos. I suppose that a check for 500.00 made out to your cause will be sent to you right away. It was tucked in the box with the VHS tape. I will enclose a picture of him and his buddies. The one in the middle is Frank. The one to his left was Cpl. James David Teutsch.. we called him The Indian..his son called him Daddy, Frank called him a best friend, his wife called him JD..our Government called him a hero..Good luck Captain..may God bless you and your crew!

This is a wonderful site. I am an avid sailor, having two Trans-Atlantic crossings under my belt, and as such was facinated seeing your boat in Key West Harbor. I live in Key West, and in my course of work take a boat past this Neutrino craft almost daily. What I didn't expect were the interesting ideas and thoughts I found exploring your web site. Keep up the good work, and maybe I will stop by the raft to say Hi.

Hello to Betsy and Shawn, I met you on the road for an all to brief encounter from Ky.to St. Louis. I'd like to be able to tell you that things are lined up in threes for me but I guess thats further down another road. Hope the rest of your journey to Az. was safe and full of long rides. I'll check in later when I hit that first speed bump and am able to see your project in Fl. I made it to Springfield Il. befre the truck broke down! George.

We are glad to see that you made it safely to Cuba and Key West. We were passengers on the Inspiration and have wondered since that day if you all made it safely to your destination. Best wishes for more safe sailing! The Nicholson's.

07/14/03 I was a crew member on the Inspiration on my last week and my father was sailing that week as well. He spotted your vessel probably before the bridge did and then we made the turn. I was below watching what was happening. Anyway, my dad took this web site off the boat and he was going to play with it when we arrived home. Unfortunatly he passed away in the Caymen Islands the next day. So, I decided to find out for him. Lot's of rumours fly around the ship but a short note of what happened would be appreciated. Thanks, Wayne Daniels

My family and I were on board Carnival's Inspiration cruise ship and saw one of your rafts. I heard the raft was blown off course from the storm and needed supplies. Hope everything went o.k. after they got their supplies. Are the children home schooled or do they just live on-board during the summer months?

Hey--We set sail from Tampa on Carnival's Inspiration on 7/13/2003. The other day, we had the pleasure of seeing the Floating Neutrinos floating beside our ship to get provisions after Hurricane Claudette blew them all around. I'm still on the ship--we still have a few days left to our trip. Hope you made it home. I have pictures from that day, so write me at [email protected] to get me to send them to you! --Marty Correia from NYC

Just finished a 2100 mile sailing voyage in 10 days from Key West to Camden ME. Your past and present adventures inspired me to go offshore and get into the Gulf Stream as the oldest volunteer at 58 yrs of a nine person crew. Joel Ouellet

My dear Captain Betsy, My husband looked into my Sent Mail and said I owe you an apology..I was angry that you blame our Government for the sadness. His education was bought and paid for by Dear Sam. So I said Goodbye. You wondered how I had the strength to carry on. Just look at the river upon which you sit.. My brothers favorite song was "Imagine". He was so kind. I hate war, but he died with honor, if there is such a thing. We buried him in our great grand-fathers plot in Lamar, next to our parents. Today I learned that more American Soldiers have died...Imagine. I salute the flag..

From Rick in Utah but moving to the big Miss river this year. Well I guess it time for me to ask if there is other people out there that would like to build a raft in the spring of 2004 and make the same trip down the Mississippi but turn and go southeast over to the Suwannee river and motor up it for 200+ miles and see some real nice country.I have been following the Neutrinos ever since the got on the internet with a page as to see how far they would go, and what there craft looks like is one of creativity and good use of another mans junk. For the gentalmen that have knocked you reasons and the raft you have built will spend there days saying under their breath I really wish it was me on that trip. OK if any wants to email me and try to get some kink of a boat building or raft as they say, let talk and make it happen. No need for the idiots to repond as there voice means nothing to me and I think this comment section does have the right to edit all postings. Thank you [email protected]
