Off to WA

Egads- where has the time gone? Time to update the blog. Not that there hasn't been anything worthy of updating about... just too damn busy.

Then it just gets busier.

I am off again for the open waters. It's a new boat this time but also one that I know. I met the boat and skipper Jeff while down in Costa Rica. Sans Souci was in the next slip over from Astor and was the one that was supposed to be brought back via transport ship but couldn't be loaded for various reasons. The boat waited out the season sitting idle and just now is making it's way back home. I hooked up a ride and we leave tomorrow.

I'm not sure how much I will be able to update the blog because we are not planning to stop and will not have too much wifi that far out, but the owner in Seattle does a real good job of keeping track of his boat and keeps a good log. If that is the case I will keep notes and post them when I get home.

Find Ken's home page - here
(click on What's New for the latest)

and a way to track our position - here
Or click on "where is my boat now" from his logs.

and another way to track but only works if we are around busy ports - here
Once loading in the approximate area from the worldmap you can go find Sans Souci from the little pull down menu on the left. This only works if we are beaconing.

We should be heading out Sunday before noon and be up in Seattle by the end of the week. I've done this run before and it might not be a picnic. It should be good for a few stories.
