Remembering and education

I've been on the boat a few days now. I'm definitely starting to recall how to live on a boat. Man I love this life! We haven't gone anywhere - just doing some maintenance jobs, and a very long road trip up to the Chesapeake and back to deliver his car to the destination marina. What we did in a 6 hour drive (one way) will take us at least 6 days of sailing/motoring. Oh well, the point of sailing is not to get somewhere quickly, but in style.

Humidity is a change! Living in Denver one forgets what a desert it is. 80 degrees and humid in North Carolina is pretty hot, particularly since it snowed 8 inches in Denver 10 days ago. I'm sure the locals don't think it's hot or humid right now. This is going to take some adaptation.

Our friends in Florida (who also live on a boat) somehow found out already that we are buying a boat. How they figured it out is beyond me, but news travels fast. We're very much looking forward to visiting them this winter. We're very much looking forward to visiting everyone!

Tomorrow morning we leave, starting with an offshore sail for roughly 24 hours. Then roughly a week of ICW, ending in the Chesapeake Bay.


  1. Sounds like a great opportunity for a refresher in sailing! Enjoy! ~Jackie

  2. Thanks Jackie! I've been enjoying reading your blog, and always wish for more. We looked very carefully at an S2 11, and liked it very much, during our boat buying process. Seems like you and Ron have a great boat! Hope we meet up somewhere out there.
