    I'm gonna bank on it happening in late November/early December 2021 (not without precedent - remember Barge To Hell sailed first week of December).

    That way it is still 70000 Tons of Metal 2021.

    I like your optimism !
    If that did happen like you suggest , what would happen with 2022 cruise , not likely they would sail again for January , February 2022 , not enough months in between cruises ?

    200 days to sailing!
    Or is it?

    I thought we might at least see something from Skip and co. today.

    Nah I think it would be fine. One 70K late November/Early December 2021, the next in late January/Early February 2022.

    A lot of people backed up attending Barge To Hell with the next 70K no issues.

    From a financial perspective, I'd still be saving money the same as before, for two cruises. They'll just end up being closer together.

    If it's safe, I'd 100% be in for both.

    You say 'a lot of people' - but low attendance is also why Barge to Hell was never repeated. If it can't be done profitably, it won't be done.

    So, no 200 days to sailing post.
    197 days to go...to something, sometime...

    This silence so far, is looking like what others here are saying, that it's not gonna happen until well into 2021.

    I guess I was being very hopeful that we'll see a 200 days to go thing.
    Not a 'We're still sailing' post, but an update from the Skip to basically say "we're alive and we're monitoring the latest news...bla bla bla' or whatever.

    2021 (Nov) and then the next cruise in Feb 2022?
    They barely organized this last one properly.

    They would need to reinstall confidence in all the bazillion frustrated sailors again for that to happen (imo).
