Loved reading all of your journal updates. My friend and I plan on setting sale from Charlevoix next year around August 31st, waiting till I am out of the military next spring. We are planning on sailing through the Great Lakes and down to the Caribbean.

Was wondering if you could fill me in on the following:
1. How is the weather around Montreal, Quebec & as you move north, New Brunswick this time of year? How heavy of gear do you recommend?
2. In general how has the wind been on a daily basis this time of year on the Great Lakes, what kind of mileage are you pulling a day/ week. In your journals it sounds like you are making excellent time.
Don’t want to overwhelm you with questions; just thought I would ask since you are taking a path we plan to in one year. Thanks a bunch.

In your Journal I think you mentioned stopping by Charlevoix, MI. Or at least planning on it. That is my hometown, small world.
