Aww shucks tdw...
I really appreciate everything said here, thanks everybody
Just want to say that in these last couple of weeks before the 1st, I'm going to be pretty tied up trying to get everything in place for the move aboard, so I probably won't be responding a whole lot to this thread (and others) like I normally would and would like to do. I'll be checking in with S/N as usual (from my phone, just reading), but I'm probably going to be m.i.a for a bit. The deal seems to be working out that I will be down at the boat wrapping her up as much as I can, and Cate will be here taking care of wrapping up the house. The time crunch is the big thing right now, the little piddly details seem to be the most time consuming for some reason...
In what time I can scrape together, I'll probably write in the blog. I'm probably going to do the first post in the next couple of days or so. I'd like to also mention that I'm actually pretty glad I did go ahead and post here letting you guys in on our plans. I wasn't sure if I should, but I'm glad I did! I look forward to giving you guys something interesting to read once and awhile..
ccriders - I wanted to respond to what you wrote: I'm well aware how lucky I am with Cate - believe
me when I tell you. Not many wives go willingly into a cockpit locker to do epoxy work or install a fastener, nor do many wives go happily into the bilge in a paper suit in 90 degrees to clean out 47 years of chud buildup (not to mention want to get rid of it all to live on a small boat and travel with me never more than 30' away..
). She's awesome, and if it weren't for her I'd probably be an even bigger
Thanks again everyone
