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.

Valiente has a spectacular aura about Valiente has a spectacular aura about
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.
