Gary - we're having a wonderful time here, but the sailing/gunkholing in the Chesapeake is infinitely better. Plus, there's this thing about hurricanes ... having weathered two aboard, I have no wish for a third. Being outside the "box" makes our insurance company happier, too.

We're still wrapping our minds around the fact that the oncologist is giving us a longer leash, which will increase our cruising area. Originally there were appts, scans, and tests every 3 months; then every 6 months. Now they only need to see Dan once a year, so many more things are possible for us.

Well, I finished reading Nick O'Kelly's book "Get Her On Board" in two sittings. This should be required reading for all married men young and old. Sometimes( After 25 years ) we tend to take the other half for granted when we plan something like a cruising lifestyle. She wants to go, but not for ever. Nor do I. We are looking to go for a year or two then return to living on "dirt" sometime later. Works for me. Bob
