That's incredibly generous Shane. Please don't go to any trouble, but they would definitely be much appreciated. We do have Dahl's book, and Richardson's Superior, so if you find another worthy soul for those, certainly pass them on. But I'm sure I can find good boats for them all.

And please do keep us posted on your journey.

Many thanks Shane. That's very kind of you.

shanedennis Down, I'm sorry we will miss Maine too. If we decide we like the cruising life enough I think we will make it there one day.

We may be headed up through the Erie Canal when you are coming down. We are starting a new house next summer here so it is not easy to know when that will release us.

Good on both of ya!
Thanks Down, what a kind offer. I very much appreciate it, and hope I can take you up on the invite. Beers on me!

May can be a lamb or a bear, but I'm sure you'll handle it all well. I wish we were going this year, but real estate and lack of money will keep us here one more year. One more year to explore the Big Lake. That's OK...

I think we met Nokomis and her crew a few years ago in LaPointe, WI. Vicki & Paul were both wonderful people. I'm delighted to hear they've made the big journey. I'll definitely read through their blog.
