    My name is Guus Dekker and i am new in this forum. So let me introduce
    myself a little bit.
    I am Dutch and live in Belgium, tomorrow I become 52 years  young.
    My predilection for (Celestial) Navigation start with observing
    atlases and  with an Amelia Earhart packet for MS flightsimulator98. I
    always prefer the vintage aircrafts. More and more I read and find out
    about AE and Fred Noonan, her navigator, and Harold Gatty,  I love it
    to know how to calculate ones position without visual landmarks. I
    join the Tighar AE forum and I buy books and printed out and studied
    lots of Celestial nav. books from the I-net, such as Bowditch, pub.
    229 and 249. Sailing directions, Silicon sea questions and answers,
    Quartermaster 3 & 2, Jimmy Cornell's World cruising routes, Ocean
    Navigator on line, plotting sheets, Thomas Stout's An Ocean nav.
    exercise from Bermuda to Azores, vintage air navigation manuals TM
    1 ..., World port index, Chart no. 1, E-6B computer ... etc. etc.
    So both ways of Celestial Nav. finding your way especially in the
    Pacific for aircraft and vessels have my interest.
    Maybe you are thinking that I am an armchair navigator ... Well ...
    but on my flightsim boat/aircraft in "real weather" in REAL TIME, I
    will find my way to a little speck of land in the middle of the Ocean
    with my REAL WORLD sight reduction tables and my "real" simulated
    bubble sextant.
    When somebody ask me to join a circumnavigation as Cel.Navigator ... I
    will say yes ok I am able to do so,(I am also a cook ;-) and  a
    prudent navigator never relies on a single source of navigation
    So thats why I want to join ...
