My usual answer is:
 
"If I could make my money without going onto the pavement, I would be very happy".
 
And that is actually my long term goal. Not that I don't like going into the world of paved streets and commercialization. I just want to be able to go because I want to … (3 comments)

outer banks: Shipwreck found in Corolla, NC may be older than originally thought. - 06/04/10 08:40 AM
 
The shipwreck uncovered in on the beaches of Corolla, NC on the Outer Banks this past winter has been safely moved to historic Corolla Village, away from threat of the ocean. After taking time to study the remains of the wreckage, the ship which was once thought to be about 300 years old is now believed to be 400. At one point they thought that it was the HMS Swift that went down about 1698. Now archiologists believe that is could be Ghost from 1609.
