Originally, I'd planned on leaving the frozen north by February first. One thing or another kept pushing the date off until Saturday the fifth. As of Friday night, the truck is mostly packed, the boat's loaded, and we could be on the road by Saturday -but we won't.
This time it's by choice. Another storm is coming up the coast. It's not supposed to be bad here in NH. Only about 3 inches of snow is expected in my area. I'm not too worried about driving in that. However, further south, it looks like a nasty mix of snow and freezing rain. The thought of driving in the Boston/New York corridor in those conditions is not a good one.
Sunday, conditions look much better. That's the current departure date.
I'd like to thank my buddy Jeff for helping me load up the heavy things. Beats the heck out of doing it alone. The old back has been complaining.
Shoveled out the sailboat again. Always feels a bit odd doing that. Probably have snow and ice on the boat until we get deep in the south. Should be an interesting trip.
TRAITOR JOE HAS GOTTA GO!
