Circumnavigation (99+49) False Hopes and the End of the World

Recommended Posts

False Hopes and the End of the World is up! (it may take a minute or so to appear).

 

Happy December 52nd, 2012! It'll soon be 2013!!

 

I almost named this chapter "potato salad" but I thought "False Hopes and the End of the World" worked better.

 

Next week we have another relaxing chapter, "Countdown to Doomsday", after which we have 2 remaining chapters and an epilogue.

I'm wondering how they're going to get out of this one. Hopefully changing the satellite phone will keep Bridget from directly tracking them. The tough part is that Bridget has her Argentine contacts. The really must elude the patrol boat or an Orion aircraft, but I don't see how they can pull that off.

 

Anyway, I enjoyed the chapter and can barely wait for the next one.

Happy December 54th.

 

At least we know Shane and Trevor are safe. Someone is watching out for them through binoculars. I am beginning to think the next couple of chapters are going to require some nail biting.

 

And no potato salad, please.

Safe?  Heading into an area with some of the worst winter weather on the planet in a Cat? 

Bridget is still scheming and actively planning their demise.  I don't think Trevor and Shane

are safe by a long ways just yet.  And yes, Arrrghhh!  Another week until we find out anything!

I agree, Dave.  They are not safe and their fate may be horrible.  Not only do they have to contend with severe weather and dangerous seas around Cape Horn, but they have many miles to go to reach the Falklands...about 48 hours.  Bridget isn't the only one trying to track them down; there are the Argentines and possibly the Chileans.

B) .................Humm, Looks like a clean getaway from the Argentinians for Trevor and Shane. But the Chileans might be wondering why their territory was breached possibly twice if the Argentinian gunboat tried following much further, as I'm sure they were ordered to. Where Trevor is now heading, who would be crazy enough to follow him?   :whistle:

I wish you would include more details, history lessons, etc. to make the story continue for (at least) another year.  I love this story, it's given me something to look forward to (just about) every week for so long, it feels like forever.  I truly don't remember what life was like B.C. (Before Circumnavigation); nor do I want to remember those dark days, much less experience them again.  Mr. James, I urge you to give serious consideration to the fact that you have--whether deliberately and knowingly, or totally cluelessly--coerced innocent people such as myself into becoming addicted to your story.  It is difficult and painful to contemplate the monumental suffering that awaits if you follow through with your plan to force us addicts to quit cold turkey in less than a month.   You appear to be unaware of the high levels of dependence that you have created in some, if not most, of your readers.  Because of this, you have a moral obligation to mitigate the harm that will inevitably befall these highly dependent readers if you were to suddenly revoke their weekly sustenance.  To put it plainly, you must not do this!  There is no reason why Trevor and Shane can't stop in Venezuela and become embroiled in some sort of complex international incident involving Hugo Chavez and nuclear weapons.  (And the Scar could be resurrected here to team up with Bridget.)  This could easily go on for another 150 weeks or more.  I think I can deal with it if I know that there are only 150 more installments of Circumnavigation left before it ends.  That would be much better than cruelly gloating about your plan to end everything in 3 or 4 weeks, and not even pretending you've already written the draft for the sequel, which you could easily do if you really cared about us.  I had a hard enough time overcoming my addiction to cigarettes and frankly, I don't think I have the fortitude to make it through Circumnavigation withdrawals.  Thank you in advance for hearing the sincerity of my desperation and revising your plans accordingly.  And although I haven't ever actually discussed this with any of the other readers, I am confident that many, if not most, of them feel the same.  Mike in San Diego

CJ's words always make for great images. :great:  I was encouraged to look up some information on the 'Albatross' and came across this site http://www.caphorniers.cl/CH_monument.htm dedicated to the sailors that have perished in these turbulent waters.  I don't know about anyone else but I have thouroughly enjoyed learning about things I knew nothing about prior to reading this novel. The scenery, geography, history, understanding what a radar reflector is, AIS, learning about the bilge (I thought it was the nautical term for the human waste tank) and that's just from this chapter.  Once again I must say thank you so much for the time and effort dedicated to this tome. :worship:

 

I was saddened to see the outcome of the $200 bribe only bought Trevor perhaps a few minutes, but smart for him to give himself an excuse to leave the dock in order to get a head start on the Penguins!  I have no idea what the 'False Hope' is though.  Could it be the hope of our boys surviving?  The hope of Bridget believing Joel to be Trevor? The hope that Gonzales will locate BB; well at least they have her narrowed down to a 2000 mile radius.  :lmao: I am a lttle concerned about Fowler, how did he know to mention to Trevor not to answer calls, that doing so could 'wreck the phone or worse'.  This was after we found out that the sat phone that Joel was using was destroyed by BB's agents.  Hmmm.

 

Also what's this with the grandparents, nice to finally get to meet them and their motorhome. My guess is the coach is serving as the Trojan Horse delivering Lisa and Joels 'free' honeymoon, courtesy of you know who.

 

The person eyeing the cat with military binocs will hopefully be a Chelian coast guard that happened upon the signals sent out by Trevor when they were targeting the patrol boat and of course all will live happily ever after!  But then again I am always wrong. :blink:

 

Thanks again CJ, from one of your many fans!!!!  I don't know what we will do. I do have experience in treating withdrawls and will need to ponder the exact cure for C.W. (circumnavigation withdrawl)....Maybe others on the forum can help!!

B) ............Hmmm, nobody really mentioned the title to this chapter. I get the 'end of the world', but now to the 'false hopes'!  Was it that Joel was hopefully going to finally get to see where their honeymoon was located at? Was it Bridget thinking she finally had Trevor in her grasp? Or was it that the custom officer thinking that he got off Scot free from giving his permission and was bribed? Or could it be Trevor's assumption that when they reached their designation at sea they would be 'safe'?

 

Bridget is going to be furious with the boys escaping her yet again, will she just send out Xavier and his crew after them then Trevor takes them out with the 30-06 rifle. Or will she go along to make sure that 'if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself'.  I doubt that with 3 more chapters, and I think it is more likely that Bridget try's to lure Trevor in at Joel and Lisa's honeymoon suite with the threat of death to his friends. Hopefully, Gonzales will be all over it with trepidation of Bridget.

Argghh! Indeed! We have to have faith that not even the goat would have our boys come so far only to be caught by the Argentines - no, it must be Chilean eyes behind those binocs...the question is, are there any of them in the employ of Brigit and the Cartel?

 

One can only hope the the Chileans if that is who they are have been watching long enough to see that Argentinian patrol boat chase Atlantis only to lose them. At that point maybe the Chileans will catch up to Trevor & Shane, have a celebratory drink and then send them on their,way to the Falklands…

 

There's a happy ending we can live with, at least for the next chapter!

Great story. I am looking forward to its conclusion so that CJ can begin a new story! I believe that Trevor and Shane need to get to international waters as soon as they get by Cape Horn. I'm guessing that Trevor's uncle will contact the Brits in the Falklands and get them to provide an escort to protect them from the Argentinians. After all Trevor has some very valuable evidence against the drug cartels that has international significance, so it would behove the Brits to come to their rescue.

I wouldn't worry that they need to elude the patrol boat OR the Orion. They'll more likely need to deal with both. :)

Exactly!! They aren't alone, which has got to be a comfort in such a lonely place. :)

Bridget is still scheming and actively planning their demise.  I don't think Trevor and Shane

are safe by a long ways just yet.  And yes, Arrrghhh!  Another week until we find out anything!

 

Most cats are superb boats, but, they are not ideal for violent seas. Like every design of boat, they have their strengths and weaknesses.  

 

Don't worry though.. the weather isn't the greatest danger to them, not by a longshot. :)

 

I agree, Dave.  They are not safe and their fate may be horrible.  Not only do they have to contend with severe weather and dangerous seas around Cape Horn, but they have many miles to go to reach the Falklands...about 48 hours.  Bridget isn't the only one trying to track them down; there are the Argentines and possibly the Chileans.

 

You forgot Xaveir and his team of killers, whom we last saw inbound for Ushuaia. So, there are lots of possibilities. :)

Thanks!! :)

 

Oh, there's some history in the coming chapter, though not quite as much. It's plot-relevant, plus it contains at least two things that I don't think can be found anywhere on the internet, and one not even in books. :)

 

It's too late to alter the plot... The story ends in August, 2007, and it's already June. :)

The "end of the world" is referred to by Shane; some people cal that region that. It's also an allusion to that memorial, which bears this (in Spanish) on it's base;

I, the albatross that awaits at the end of the world...

I am the forgotten soul of the sailors lost,

rounding Cape Horn from all the seas of the world.

But die they did not in the fierce waves,

for today towards eternity, in my wings they soar,

in the last crevice of the Antarctic winds.

 

Incidentally, a detail that I could not fit into the story is that the albatross sculpture sings. In strong winds (very common there) it has a deep tone, almost like a pipe organ note, only several, and continuously changing. It is an intensely mournful sound, yet apparently it was an unplanned effect.

BTW, the long walkways and stairs to it are mainly not paved, unlike the ones in the pic. A few feet further back and they are wood, and I'll warn anyone who goes there; they are sometimes loose. 

 

 

 Another (wot the hell is going to happen) chapter I do hope that Trev and Shane survive and are still alive at the end. As always looking forward to the next chapter

 

Don't worry, what's the worst that could happen? :)

They are between a rock and a hard place. :)

The "False hopes" were Gonzalez, who had believed until then that that tape alone might be able to take down Bridget. The "end of the World" is Cape Horn :)

International waters won't stop Argentina; it, like many nations, will persue and stop in international waters. :)

Yes, yes.....another exciting chapter!! Another cliffhanger that makes me think I'm an idiot!......well, a hanger, no cliff.....goats don't do cliffs, right? Wait, that sounds wrong....maybe goats don't do hangers and live on cliffs.....which is where the guy is with the binoculars.....so maybe the goat could tiptoe over and knock him off....are lift him up and suspend him on the hangar!!....since people watching other people in this story are never good people, they always have bad things in mind! Why is it that the bad guys in this story always communicate and everybody always knows what page everyone else is on and the good guys keep secrets from each other and never help each other?? I mean, if Gonzalez, and Trevors friends and parents, etc would all level with each other they'd be so far ahead of that witch! This is an exercise in organizational futility.

 

Now....at this point it should be clear that I'm just going to have to wait until the next chapter to have a clue what will happen next....otherwise I wouldn't have spent the entire paragraph above distracting you from seeing that I don't have a clue what you know who is going to do with this story next! Nice hat, goat.

I'm surprised Bayoudreamn was the first to mention this huge cliffhanger that CJ has left us with :o Could it be that we are so used to them that we may actually be immune to the effects it leaves on us :(

 

So looked up on Wiki and found this:

 

 

The cape lies within Chilean territorial waters, and the Chilean Navy maintains a station on Hoorn Island, consisting of a residence, utility building, chapel, and lighthouse.[5] A short distance from the main station is a memorial, including a large sculpture made by Chilean sculptor José Balcells featuring the silhouette of an albatross, in honour of the sailors who died while attempting to "round the Horn". It was erected in 1992 through the initiative of the Chilean Section of the Cape Horn Captains Brotherhood.[6]

 

This tells me that indeed they have been noticed by the Chilean Navy, who knows, maybe it is a priest in the chapel who will pray for them ;)

 

The big question is, how will the Chilean Navy respond. I'm sure they will be watching for Argentina to pursue them and that should get their ire up. Too bad there isn't any surface to air missiles to remind the Argentinean Orion that they are in their airspace.

 

One last note, a few people I have known have taken cruises around the Cape and those people have said that when they entered Argentina it was beautiful, but they knew by all the rules that there was corruption everywhere. They were encouraged to stay in groups and not to wander off. After the rounding and making port in Chilli, things were much different. People weren't on guard as much when there.

 

It seems Trevor has picked a few choice spots for troubles with government corruption. First Egypt, now Argentina.

 

I should say that this is others impressions of Argentina, not my own. Most likely the average Argentinean is welcoming and honest person to tourists. Just like when you have a corrupt central government, it tends to flow out to all the branches and arms of that government and takes years to correct and improve upon. :(

Hello and welcome to the forum!!!

 

Don't listen to some of the rumors around here... I would never, ever use a cliffhanger. I wouldn't even know how.

 

You've raised a very good point; communications. The good guys were absolutely handicapped by this, especially in the beginning. (it was, to a huge degree, the cause of Trevor's flight from Florida). It's gotten less over time, to the point where they are sharing most everything (it takes time to build trust). As for the bad guys, they have their issues too; Bridget has secrets from most everyone, though she's been far better at cooperating when it comes to trying to kill Trevor and Shane. :) But absolutely, the good guys have often been chasing their tails while the other side is far better informed. Organizational futility indeed. :)

Ahhem! There was no cliffhanger!! The binoculars thing may well be very minor compared to having a patrol boat and an Orion chasing after Atlantis.

 

BTW, the Orion could use its radar to look into Chillian territory without coming into their territory itself. ;=)

 

How would Chile respond? Good question!!! One one hand, they may not be overly fond of Argentina, but Atlantis has entered their internal waterways without permission. (Atlantis didn't need permission to enter the Beagle - it's an international waterway. Murray Channel isn't.) So... they won't be happy about the patrol boat, but they may not be happy about Atlantis, either.

 

Good sleuthing. There is indeed a Chilean naval station (a tiny one, mainly an observation post) just a few hundred yards from Cape Horn, usually staffed by one officer and two enlisted. It was one of them that told me that the sounds the wind makes on the memorial were unintentional. (the walkway up from the arrival beach goes right by the base). 

 

Argentina is, unfortunately (especially for Argentinians) afflicted by severe corruption, and not just in the government (though that's the root cause). I've been there on a cruise a couple of times, but I also stayed a few weeks ashore (Like my recent trip to Italy; if I'm flying all that way anyway, I'm going to do more than just a cruise, I'm going to spend a few weeks ashore). Cab drivers, clerks, and even a hotel manager tried the old counting scam on me, and that was just one of the ways they tried to rip me off (it happened a lot - one day in Buenos Ares it was three different tries in one day). My experience was not unusual. This also happened up at Iguazu falls, and a few other places in the north. In general, the more 'tourist destination" a place, is, the worse it is for that. I was traveling on my own, mainly by car, so I saw all sorts of places, good and bad. However, once out of the tourist destinations, it's much better. For example, Ushuaia; when I was there, it was basically crime-free except for government graft. Nobody even bothered locking up. Yet in Buenos Ares, they even have a luggage wrapping service at the airport; they wrap your suitcase in several layers of cellophane for a fee. This is done by a lot of passengers. The reason is to stop baggage handlers rifling through your luggage and stealing; it's so commonplace that they need the service. They also need it (but don't have it) at a heck of a lot of hotels. 

 

I also spent a couple of weeks in Chile, and the difference was astounding. It's not free of trouble, but it's less by an order of magnitude or more. If I go back to South America, I'd want to spend a few weeks in Chile, but not Argentina (except for Ushuaia).

CJ this is not just a story. Your basis of information about all this just astounds me. The story always interests me and keeps me coming back week after week. Of course my ultimate goal is to see the bad guys loose and the good guys win. But the facts you present along the way make it truly fascinating! Thanks man!

As often the case, there are lots of questions raised -- and to be fair, also a few answered :whistle: -- but who is watching them is clearly the one that has dwelt in my mind since I got to read the chapter yesterday (finally). I'm not sure I've felt the cards stacked so against Trevor (and now Shane) since the pirate attack and its aftermath until he reached Australia. That boy has got some serious black clouds following him (flash to L'il Abner for those who knew and remember that comic). I do hope that Trevor, Shane, and most if not all the others close to them survive for a future potential sequel -- just not Bridget: I want that beeyatch to die slowly, painfully, and in a manner where she has to experience all the torments she has caused.

Bridget is building up her forces....... :devil:  She had a pretty formidable force to begin with after taking over the operation so why the massive consolidation of might?? :)  Trevor, Shane and the tape are certainly a worry to her but there is something bigger in the background going on.... :whistle:  Our illustrious author has dropped lots of hints that Bridget always has more than one "iron in the fire" and I've always believed that she has an agenda that, though involving the demise of Trevor and his evidence, is mainly concerning her "other" plan..... Nice build up going on here CJ :lmao:
