Going to Channel Islands on Sunday

Hi all, I am finally going to do the first family over-nighter of this summer. Where the time has gone I do not know. Anyway, we did one single overnight last summer to Santa Cruz Island. It was fun, but a fair amount of work for just one night. This time we will do two nights and it should be much more fun. For one thing, my comfort level is so much better, as last year I was new to the boat. I have spent the whole year adding safety equipment, electronics, and new wiring, so hopefully things will be very easy. My sons are chomping at the bit to go tearing around in the inflatable.

Well, wish me luck, and I will post when we return.

Bill

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
