All Old Salty ever knew were the rough seas, the familiar salt and wind in his face and his few good crewmates. He spent his life traveling the seven seas in an endless effort to win a Guinness World Record for the longest time spent at sea. For years he never saw land. Not too long ago he was passing near the northeast seaboard of the US, en route to the Arctic when his ship was caught in a terrible storm. Actually it was "WINTER STORM 06'". After days of battling the high seas, his ship began to take a terrible beating. In a terrible fight, all the crew was thrown overboard, and the ship fell into pieces. Old Salty battled the waves for the rest of the night and woke in the morning to find himself washed up on a beach. He was completely devastated after losing all his fine men, and didn't know what to do next. The following excerpts were recovered from his journal.
