So Jon,
When will you be catching up to Gary?
Hi Caleb...

Doubtful I'll catch Gary this winter, if I do make it south, I'd peel off for the Bahamas, anyway...

As usual, it will be a last minute decision, but at this point the odds favor my staying home this year. I'm hoping to get away for a longer cruise next summer instead, and to head south would complicate that a bit...

Sounds like the weather this winter might be a bit wild, with the jet stream wobbling up and down, producing some real extremes of weather... If I do stay home, perhaps what I'll do is just get away for 6 weeks or so in January and February, head down the Chesapeake (I've never explored the bay on my own boat) and explore the Sounds in NC for awhile... That can be some great sailing down there in the winter, and you've got it pretty much to yourself...
