We're back! At least for a minute or two

I’m guessing there’s a few members who recall my multiple personality antics from a few months ago, and they probably prefer that I just stay away, but I thought I’d make one last post before I go.

In about 4 hours I’m flying out of Seattle to San Diego to join my family on a year long cruise. Originally I hadn't planned to go with them, but my persistent little brother talked me into it. I’m pretty excited about it now and I can't wait to see everyone; I haven’t slept in three days. Once we leave California we’re heading south along the coast to Panama. On December 1st we are loading the boat on a carrier to take it to Florida, while we spend the holidays in Argentina. In January we are flying to Florida and plan to spend most of the spring down there. From there we head up the East coast with the intention of making the crossing to Spain. After which I’ll be back in Seattle next fall to start my freshman year at the University of Washington.

So there you go. That’s my life for the next 12 months. Anyway….thanks for all the laughs and I apologize for being such an annoying troll. Take care.

AJ

We remember the good and the bad. You answered a lot of questions about growing up on a boat and helped a lot of people with planning for their kids. And yeah, you weren't quite done being a kid. Facing up to it says a lot, though.

Do continue to post and let us know how it is going.

Could be done on a Dockwise transport ship. That's a carrier that can easily handle a boat that size.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

No Dockwise pickups in Panama Dog. I guess it could be some other carrier...I thought he was referring to overland but based on past experience with trolls....color me skeptical. I'll settle for pictures of a 50' Bavaria on the ship.

Very true... but I was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt.

My question is the cost of sailing the boat to Florida from Panama vs. shipping the boat to Panama via some mammoth transport ship. Even hiring captain and crew would make more sense to me

Or leave the boat in Panama for the holidays and then sail from Panama to Florida after the holidays

I don't know maybe it's just me !

Have a good trip none the less

Waz Up!? It's been months and months since I last checked in, so I thought I'd say hi. I'm sitting in a place called the Pier Head Gallery in Exmouth, (Devon, Uk) It's a little cafe/art gallery with Internet access. We docked here last night and plan to stay a few days and do some minor repairs. We spent two weeks in Dublin prior to this. We left the US about two months ago, (we took 36 days to make the crossing). The weather is exactly like Seattle, it's 60 degrees and raining. From here I'm headed back to Spain, but we're in no hurry, and plan to spend the next couple of months sailing down and around to Barcelona, where I get off. I should be back in the States by the end of July. I can't wait for school to start (I'll be freshman at the UW). My parents and brother plan to stay in Europe for the winter and then head south next spring, but who knows. The sailing has been unbelievable, and the boat has performed flawlessly. Our only mishap was in Savannah Georgia a couple of months ago when some dipshiat powerboater rammed us at the fuel dock. We survived, but it set us back a week. But it was worth it, if you've never been to Savannah you really need to go. It's a great city.

One more thing, Giulietta, I'll be coming down your coast next month, maybe we should hook up and swap some stories (or some lies). No really, I'm serious, I'd imagine our families have a few things in common. If you're up for it send me a PM.

I guess that's all I got for now.
