Smile Blog- One family's trip from the Great Lakes to the ICW

We have more miles to go, but wanted to post our family blog of our trip across the Great Lakes and the down the ICW. We started in Ashland, WI, September 2007, and are currently in St. Augustine, FL., December 2007.
Thanks to Camaraderie and others on Sailnet who posted great advice in response to our questions for travel, marinas etc. etc.
Here's the blog:

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

CBW...nice job on the blog! Brings back some nice memories and it is good to see the ICW through newbies eyes again! Glad you got to see Cumberland Island. BTW...if you will be in St.A for a while...check out the Lightner museum there...a museum of a guy who collected other peoples collections! And had Andrew Carnegie kind of bucks to do it with. Most interesting. Right in downtown.
Keep up the good work...glad you are all safe and sound and happy holidays!

Very nice, indeed. Thanks for sharing. The winter season has become not only maintainence/repair/upgrade time, but also blog reading time.

Nice to see another young family with two little girls living the dream. Hopefully my wife, my two daughters and I will only be a couple of years behind you!
