Unbeknownst, we rented Warren Miller's condo at Sugar Cove about 20 years ago. There on coffee table was his self-published autobiography, plus many photos on the walls (with US Presidents, etc).

Then, several years later we rented the beach casita of Dick Barrymore, owner/developer of Cabo Pulmo Beach Resort in Baja. There on the coffee table was his typed manuscript/autobiography. Turns out that Barrymore was the Avis to Miller's Hertz with respect to ski movies. Along with being an early adopter of windsurfing.

Small world!

Cheers, David

Was hoping somebody would fill in the blanks, like did the guys who were injured at Waddell fully recover? Did the SF to LA crossing occur? I guess nobody has sailed to Hawaii yet . . .Does the cover girl have grand kids yet?

Okay, here's one blank to fill... yes the "cover girl" does have a new grandchild, (and she is still as beautiful as she was in that cover photo.) Just saw her tonight and showed her the conversation. She laughed.

Thanks! Hopefully she was stoked to find out her fan base is still loyal!
