We have been busy earning money for our trip. We have had a few bumps in the road including 1/4 of our cruising kitty going up in flames. We had our RV for sale in New York when a guy parked next to it, and went off to work. Only a few minutes later the truck caught fire. He had Geico insurance that called it an act of God. Do not buy Geico please. I filed a complaint with the state, but that could take ages.
HOWEVER. We have picked a departure date.
We are having our next child in June, and the child will be 10 months when we leave. All we can say for sure is the first stop will be New York. After that, who knows.
The boat is getting ready, we now have our second sail in for repair, and the only major repair yet to be done is a haulout. The engine is in top form, and the generator only requires final tweaking. The rigging is really good, and only needs the thru-deck bolts replaced. The running rigging is in the process of a complete change out, and the deck is nearly finished. Most of whats left to do is pure cosmetics.
Even the stern deck is looking awesome now.
More news to come.
