More sailing soon.

My lovely wife and I will be heading out on the sailboat again soon -depending on the weather. We’ve got a good 30 miles or so of open sailing in the Gulf, so picking our departure conditions is important. After that, we have at least some protection from the open water. We plan about a 5 day trip this time, but will be prepared for more days on the water if necessary.

When this blog stops getting updated for a few days, don’t worry about it. I’ll be beyond wifi signals, so that’s that.

Not much else going on. I’m helping dad with a few projects around his house. We’ve spent a lot of time just hanging out and talking. Dad and I always got along. Even when I was a teenager, we did a lot of things together.

There’s a short wave radio on the boat if I really want to follow the news. Foreign news is one of the few ways to find out what the heck is going on in the US. All the same, I’ll probably keep my news to a bare minimum. It’s good to take a break from the craziness now and then.



  1. Watch ut for those currents in the Gulf. Wishing you fair winds and calm seas.

  2. We decided to delay our departure until Tuesday. There's a fair chance of thunderstorms today. Tuesday looks good.

  3. Shortwave is better for an honest look at U.S. news, I think.

    Hope you enjoy the time on the water!

  4. Sounds like you all are going to have another fun adventure.
