and we'll still be waiting for you off Sydney Heads ....

I reckon we all pretty much agree that Chris is as mad as a gum tree full of galahs but we need the Chris's of this world if only as a contrast to the depressingly bland that rules too much of our lives.

Best wishes to you both, we look forward to hearing of the good the bad and the joys of pure sailing.

I assume we are take it that this is not a good thing.

BTW, those big gum trees are really beautiful. Nothing like that in Canada

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Yes, you have a great pardner there! Marriage is great when you share adventures. I am also very lucky to have a wife who shared my passion for motorcycling; we did a lot of traveling together.

Fair Winds and Happy Sailing to you both!

And if you ever get to the west coast of Florida ................ you don't even need to ask.

Get some pics on that blog and a story of your boat.

BTW going south on the ICW at Cape Hatteras is one of the times that sailing is more possible.

Be interesting to here about your experiences with bridge tenders and if they make allowances for you.

Hey Chris, we wish you the best. We are about 2 yrs away from doing the same thing. Our plan has been in the works for about 5 yrs. Our son graduates from high school in 2013 than we are out of here. We have a projected date of late summer 2013.

It will be interesting to us how you guys manage cost. For us figuring a reasonable budget is a challenge. There are a lot of varying opinions out there. Of coarse everyone will be different and lifestyle has a lot to do with it also. Still it doesn't hurt to hear from those who are actually out there, not just talking about it.

TTYL

After a few years of intense inpatient therapy and heavy medication, I should be ready to do another one...

Thanks
