Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

well, we wiled the day away at sylvan beach . wandered around town and met another sailor up from the lower hudson headed south. Saw a few other saiboats headed west, why , I don't know as it's october and the only hing west is more cold.
A wicked front blew through this afternoon so we loosed the dock lines and motored to the next lock to gather and cut wood for the wood stove as well as get away from the inlet of onieda lake and the high winds from the west.
the wood stove is cranking and te crew is asleep.
Incidently , I'm getting internet through a foxfi app as a hotspot running on a droid phone using the "straight talk" prepay unlimited talk text,internet for $45 a month it's the second month I've had it and so far it has performed well.
hope that continues.
Before we left I bought a marine battery cherger at Wally world for $50 and it did a great job de-sulfating and fully charging the 4 t-105's I use as a house bank and everything is running strong, fridge,lights inverters,etc.
Tommorrow we'll put on a little distance across the canal eastward.
