Geez,
At 2 hours away I feel like I am on the outside of normal. I'll just have to figure out how to move closer to the boat! I do envy you all who live close enough to do short day trips, for us it is a stretch to go without staying overnite.

As the gull flies, the boat is a little more than 1/4 mile from our house, but we have to drive three miles to get to the other side of the cove for shore access.

25 minutes on foot, 12 minutes on bicycle, 15 if I'm towing propane or sail bags.

Thanks to the CN Tower and my sextant, I estimate I am about 25 metres higher than the usual lake level, or very close to 100 metres above sea level.

All of which is probably "too much information".

5 minutes in the truck to get to the dingy, then 5 minutes in the dingy to get to the boat.

of course......when the boat sells, it will just be 5 minutes to the dingy

45 to 50 minutes by car now. I hope to get a slip at a marina just 5 minutes from my house (been on the waiting list for 3 years now), if I don't die before my name comes up.
