Re: I'm still alive...

Happy B-day! By the time you read this you'll be somewhere between Cape Fear and Charleston, I guess. Waccamaw River in that stretch probably gets my vote for the prettiest stretch of the waterway ... enjoy!

Re: I'm still alive...

I received a call from Gary this morning and at that time he was just passing Surf City Bridge in NC.

He sounded really content.

Re: I'm still alive...

Happy Bday Gary. Keep us posted on your progress and enjoy the solitude. I just might have to toast to you tonight. A great excuse to have a drink or two. Fair winds and safe anchorage.

Re: I'm still alive...

About 30 miles to South Carolina, which I hope the weather allows me to make tomorrow. Tied up at the Dockside Marina and Restaurant south of Wilmington, NC for the night, met some really nice folks that I hope to follow south in the morning.

Most of the time is spent motoring, or motor/sailing on the jib when there has been wind and a straight channel that's more than 100 feet wide - which is rare down here. Gets pretty hairy when a 65-foot motor-yacht suddenly appears on your stern and there's barely enough room for two boats to safely pass. I'm still making about 45 miles a day, but not every day because of bridge schedules.

Oh well, at least it's a bit warmer,

Gary
