Re: My last little bit of planning
I'll be leaving Seattle in the first couple of days of July and returning at the end of July. We don't have an itinerary planned, but expect to go to Desolation Sound and back. My guess is that we'll head up quickly (maybe getting there in 7-10 days), then take a slower course back home.
In August I'll mostly be cycling and maybe doing overnights near Seattle.
In September I'll do another 2+ weeks in the San Juans and Gulf Islands.
You can PM me to share contact info and I'll try to figure out the best way to let people know where I am (maybe I'll setup a twitter). It would be fun to run into some other cruisers on this trip. I did briefly meet northoceanbeach in person a couple of weeks ago (he bought his 22lb Bruce anchor from me), but I was helping a friend climb the mast and couldn't chat for very long. I'll likely get a SIM for Canadian cell service while I'm up there, but I need to check into coverage areas to see if it is worth it.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
