... just around the corner

It's been a few months now since the last blog entry, so my sincerest apologies to all 4 of our loyal followers. A lot has happened over the course of this summer. Namely, we learned how to sail.

Throughout this summer so far, we've been having a blast aboard our bristol exploring as much of the Apostle Islands as possible in our allotted free time from work. We've made a few additions and retrofits to our s/v including a rad GPS, an extra potable water bladder, rewired a few things, installed our cushions, bimini top, and dodger, fixed a few leaks in our dinghy, and destroyed and replaced our jib sail. AND, what I'm really excited about... I've got two 100W solar panels still in the box downstairs in my living room eagerly waiting to be installed atop our bimini! Our sailboat is getting a little greener!

We recently suffered a minor financial setback (i'm sure most of you know about that) but it looks like we'll still have enough flow to make it happen on time or even a month sooner! Originally we'd hoped to be flowing with the mississippi by nov 1st, but plans are changing a tad. Perhaps an October 1 departure instead??? stay tuned.

also, note the new bottom paint!!
