Default Who else is going crazy!!!!!!

Cabin fever is an idiomatic term for a claustrophobic reaction that takes place when a person or group is isolated and/or shut in, for an extended period. Symptoms include restlessness, irritability, forgetfulness, laughter, and excessive sleeping.[1] The word is also used humorously to indicate simple boredom from being home alone.[2] The term was first recorded in 1918.[3]



I NEED TO GO BOATING/FISHING.......are there any support groups dealing with this !!!!!

There are several pills you can take, either one at a time or all together if you really want to trip balls

The shack nasties are getting me too. The wife keeps telling me i need to go fishing sometime soon. She says i starting be a grump old bastid.
The only thing that is helping is the day long rigging sesions and gear maintance i have been doing every other week or so.. Everything is in tip top shape and everything is just about completely re rigged.. I am running out of stuff to do, untill it warms up and i can the boat unwrapped and do some of the stuff that needs to be done on her..

GOD I feel your pain! The last couple days here in Merritt Island, I actually had to wear a long sleeved T shirt when I DID step outside .... thank goodness its going to be in the 70's all this weekend or I would probably go crazy ....!

... I remember a long, long time ago when I moved to Maryland and worked there for 5 years .... finally, one day, someone opened the freezer door and I got out...!

I am so glad someone created a CABIN FEVER thread! My symptoms are the same as many of the others who have posted here:

- I plan my weekends based on where the boat show is (Hartford, Providence, Boston)
- I have done SEVERAL drive-by's past my marina (at least 7 since Jan 1st)
- I randomly seek out local bait shops that I have never been to and stop in and buy 1 or 2 items
- JUST THIS MORNING, I spent an hour sitting in my truck watching the lobster boat activity at the Town Pier in Brant Rock

It's bad and it's only friggin Feb 7th!

I know the feeling! I have a zipper door in my shrink wrap and have completely detailed and waxed every square inch of the cockpit from stem to stern and it's only February. Guess I'll just do it again. I spend way too much time on THT and visits to the local boat shop trying to invent things that I need. I'll be at the Atlantic City Show tomorrow just to be near boats.

There was a heat wave here today at 42 degrees. Snow still piled up high in some places.
Yeah, I have had my fill of this crap.
I think jerryk is right. life is too short. The northeast sucks this time of year.

Tommymo, I'm originally from Norwood, N.J. in Bergen County. I left there for the south in 1982 and never looked back and will not visit my family after labor day.
Momma raised 4 fools and they all still live there...go figure!
When you need it bad...we got it good down here in fl. Today, sunny and 75, 80 by wed, come on down..
