Will take a look at that book, thanks

wingNwing Gary - we're having a wonderful time here, but the sailing/gunkholing in the Chesapeake is infinitely better. Plus, there's this thing about hurricanes ... having weathered two aboard, I have no wish for a third. Being outside the "box" makes our insurance company happier, too.

We're still wrapping our minds around the fact that the oncologist is giving us a longer leash, which will increase our cruising area. Originally there were appts, scans, and tests every 3 months; then every 6 months. Now they only need to see Dan once a year, so many more things are possible for us.

travlineasy Eryka,

Are you really going to leave the land of palm trees, turquoise waters, wonderful breezes and fantastic snorkeling to return to Annapolis? If everything goes as planned, I hope to voyage south to Marathon Key for the 2012/13 winter, and I can assure you that I'll have a difficult time leaving to return to the Chesapeake's upper reaches.

Gary

Very confusing. I believe they did temporarily reopen sections late last year to exit stranded vessels. Most say it won't all be open at once this coming year, as repairs continue. However, I can't find anyting definitive. I know someone (stinkpot) who spent last summer on the finger lakes and planned to winter on the hard. However, he also planned to get out and is unsure of his fate this year.

wingNwing Midnight, you're on - looking forward to talking with you both in the Chesapeake next summer. At the same time, your plan confuses me. You said your current boat is not the one you're taking to the Keys. So, what boat are you taking to Annapolis? Why not buy your next boat *in* Annapolis and start your trip there? Tons of choices in the Chesapeake - and save yourself that (admittedly beautiful, but long) solo voyage from the Great Lakes?

Midnightflyer WingNwing, I would love to have Ruth talk to someone that has taken the plunge. We spoke to a couple while standing in line as we drooled over one of the boats at the Annapolis Boat Show. She said that she never wanted to go back to "Living on the dirt" and was happy moving every six months or so, seeing new places and new people. That's for me! New places and new things to try. I would be content to follow the warm weather south and return to the north for our summer.

Fair Winds,
Bob and Ruth
