Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Kyhillbilly - our plans for the next 2 yrs are to hang around Lake Barkely, Ky Lake and the whole LBL area. Getting to know our boat, the lakes, etc. Then, possibly/hopefully, take her down the Tenn River, Tom Bigbee, Mobile, then over to Apalachicola area. That is where we want to retire. We'll see what the next 2 yrs brings. ; )

Imasaluki - I awoke "again" this morning to no snow. Which is ok I guess as they were also calling for some sleet. That I can do without. My thought is, if it is going to be so darn cold, at least let us have a little of the white stuff. Ha!

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

At least the days are getting longer now. We are to get more snow tonight. I want to sail one time in the snow just to say I did that. Once will be more than enough. Look up Ernest Shackleton. I just go outside on a cold day and think about how blessed I am to sail in the sun in fair winds Regards Lou

Magnolia,
My husband and I have recently purchased our first boat and will be sailing the same grounds as you (Kentucky Lake area) and have similar dreams of sailing further south. Our boat is at Lighthouse Landing but is pulled out for the winter. We are looking forward to the spring and setting sail!

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Congratulations and welcome to Sailnet.

Kentucky to Florida sounds a bit off the beaten path. Remember to check all the bridges along your route for clearance!

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Happy NYE!!!

Imasaluki - I guess you are in Florida now. Have fun soaking up the rays!! Bring some back for us. We are now into our Gray winter Ky days. Boo!

Lou - we went to the boat Sat/Sun and on Saturday it was snowing. It was very beautiful at the lake. We received no accumulation. Sunday morning the decks were covered in thick frost. Very treacherous when we were leaving.

layerst - Hi! We drove through Lighthouse Landing about a month ago. I loved seeing all of the sailboats there. Maybe, sometime in the summer, we can meet up and visit. Good luck to us both on our wishes to move south. ; )

ThirdCoastSailor - thanks for the welcome! How is your weather, warm? Yes, Ky to Fla does seem a bit off the beaten path, but, very doable. I already checked our clearance and we are good to go. Just have to get us and our boat ready. : )

Well, gang, we installed our new Airhead Composting toilet on Saturday. We had removed the old head, holding tank, sanitation hoses, etc about a month ago, so am thrilled not to have to go to the bath house any longer. Especially when the temp dropped to 21 on Sat night. Brrrr

Ta-ta

Re: Hello!! Saling newbies from Kentucky!!

Florida was nice for a few days even though it was only in the low 50s near Sarasota while I was there. I'm out in L.A. for the time being and believe it or not we got a little sleet/snow last night. Can't escape the old man winter.

We have a little electric heater that keeps the salon very warm. The v-berth was a little cool, but, we like that, so all was good. Plus I slept in a stocking cap, I was fine.

Where is Cave Run Lake exactly? We've done boating over on Barren Lake and Dale Hollow. We love Dale Hollow and would move over there in a flash, if we didn't want to move down to Florida. LOL

What is a Flying Junior? Is it a sailboat?

Merry Christmas. Best wishes!
I spent a week on Dale Hallow for spring break, must have been 1979 or so (I was in Jr High School) but did not sail, just rented a skiff and spent the week fishing with a friend and his father. Nice place. I used to have a house boat on the Ohio, and I grew up in Cincinnati.
