So far outside the box you can't even see the box from here.

Monday started out with my lovely wife and I loading a whole lot of gear and the dog into the kayak. Once loaded, we paddled from our anchorage to the Bahia Honda State Park Marina. I walked from there to the nearest bus stop outside the park.
Eventually a bus came by and took me up the chain of islands to Marathon. There a car was rented. Then it was back to Bahia Honda to pick up the lovely wife and all our gear. 420 miles later we arrived at my dad's place in Brooksville Florida. That was one long day.
Today the rental goes back to the company. The van and trailer will be checked out and prepared for Wednesday's travel.
Wednesday I plan on getting up bright and early and driving the van and trailer all the way back down to the Keys. Once at the park, I'll reinflate the kayak and paddle out to the sailboat. With any luck, the increasingly tired outboard will start allowing the boat to be motored back to the boat ramp.
The sailboat has to be secured on the trailer and the mast and rigging taken down. Once ready it'll be one long slog back up to Brooksville. If I do get tired, there is a nice full sized bed in the van, so that might come in handy.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
