Re: Headed North...

Hey Gary sounds like you are making good time. We have made it as far as St.Augustine. Had to set a day after you left us in Cocoa due to rain and that we don't have a greenhouse on our boat like you. With the weather due to make a major change tomorrow we will also be doing the outside from here. Not sure if I told you what a great stop Edesto Beach Marina is but the inlet is the easiest to get in and out on the southern east coast and the people at the marina are great. Don't think we will be able to catch you so fair winds and will see you when we get to MD.

I think Gary would have been better off starting this journey about two weeks from now. He's just on the fringe of improving weather.

Arrived at South Myrtle Beach, SC tonight, headed out to a restaurant for an Italian dinner, when I get back I'll try to post some photos and videos.

Re: Headed North...

You seem to be making pretty good time. Too good. It's horrible up here.

Gary,

Stay an extra day and go to Crocdile Rocks. Its a dueling piano bar youd really enjoy.

Gary,

A perfectly defensible decision given your responsibilities to the boat!

This is the ideal opportunity to practice the trip between SC and FL. Practice must be one of your life's mantras! Repetition is very helpful and the shorter the interval between repetitions the more valuable the learning experience. You have no choice! GO BACK! I have to go out and start the plow truck!

If it snows anymore I won't need an extension ladder to get on the boat.

Gary, you're supposed to bringing that warm weather north with you

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!
