We are in Annapolis now, leaving today to continue on for Norfolk, hope to be there by the weekend. I'll be trekking south through the ICW in November. I'm pretty sure I saw Aria here the other day.

Mike - I left Sunday morning. Now at Hampton. Just for some perspective, took me one day to Solomons, one day to Deltaville (Fishing Bay) and one day to Hampton. Will leave today for a short hop to just before the lock on the Dismal Canal route, then one day to Elizabeth City.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

We too are heading south .. leaving Annapolis sometime in the next week or so. Quick stop for bottom paint in Deltaville then down the Bahamas. We will be offshore for the passage south with stops in Charleston and then ? as we hop down the coast before crossing.

Southbound

Hello snowbirds,
I am making my first trip south on my own boat, The S/V Karen Lee, leaving lake Michigan Oct 24.
Heading down the Chicago River to the Illinois to the Miss. to the Ohio to the Tennessee to Kentucky Lake to the Ten-Tom waterway to the gulf, and to the Keys. Just Might throw in a trip to the Bahamas.
Looking for you guys, but I guess you are already ahead of me!

Speciald Again. This year we will be going with the Carib 1500 altough the last two years we went by ourselves. Yes, we will be going offshore the entire trip. My 85ft mast and 7ft draft keep me out of the ICW. Our first trip - 3yrs ago was our first long off-shore passage - We were first overall in that year's rally on a new boat for us that we had only had out of the slip 4 times during the Summer while we were doing a re-fit.

Hello Fellow "Hurricane Birds"

I know we can't be distinguished from the "Snowbirds", but I'm flying with those whose home cruising grounds are Florida and we flee to the north during the risky season. We left Maine onboard Aythya, our Morgan 41, and are now languishing in Charleston; soon to depart for some time with family on the St. John's river. This year we have elected to skip the islands for winter and cruise up the gulf coast to Tarpon Springs. 'living aboard since 1972 and we can't seem to give it up,-isn't it grand? 'take care & joy,- Aythya crew, Stewart & Nancie Force...We'll see you on the water!
