Thanks for that log Cam. Traveling up or down the Hudson by the Palisades (cliffs) is pretty impressive, not to mention Lady Liberty and the NYC skyline.
I suppose you had to do a lot of motoring to get down to the entrance of the Chesapeake if the wind was against you?
Two + days sounds like a pretty good time for transiting from NYC to Deltaville, VA.

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.

He "DOES NOT" want a winnebago! They are on par or worst than Hunter as far as build quality goes! Besides, I am thinking they are one of the many that have BK'd in the last 6-12 months with this downturn in sales in recent months.

Cam,

How long had you been cruising and what made you decide it had been long enough?

Ok SD, if that is his next purchase, I have a few folks in high places in the land yacht world that will need to have a word with him.

oh Guido.................

Actually, Winnebago is not bad, like a Hunter, "IF" you know what you are buying/getting into. It is NOT classified as a full time, nor a snow bird rig - ie 6 moths living in, 6 months not living in. So anyway, need to head to work! and attempt to make some money, as wife is not these days with the home sales downturn............

Good story Cam, my father sails out of Tarrytown (same as Bubb), from there down the Hudson is an incredible trip.

Wish you well while navigating the land yacht around the country, do you have your waypoints figured out yet?

Thanks Cam.

Hang in there, RV's get good internet connections at most camping grounds.
