Best laid plans
In previous blog posts there was a lot of discussion on what I'd be doing this coming winter. Would I buy a bigger sailboat and adventure on that? Refit my existing boat? Sail down the ICW on the Atlantic Coast?
The original plan was to leave after Thanksgiving at the end of November. Then I learned that my dad had some health issues so those plans were moved to the end of October -then the end of September. Long story short we are heading out on the road today.
In fact, I might have left earlier but my lovely wife had some doctor appointments. She's getting stitches out after lunch and we are heading to Florida right after that.
After all this talk about sailboats, we are taking the little Nissan car and leaving the sailboat behind. We have packed some camping gear and our inflatable 2 person kayak, but the trip is not really about camping this year.
I've no idea how long we'll be gone. It might be weeks. It might be months. With that in mind I've decided to winterize the house. Seems pretty weird to be winterizing my house in the middle of a heat wave, but there you go.
Most likely I'm going to miss a few blog posts.
