Getting ready to go (again)!

I'm happy to inform you that we are once again stocking up on ramen noodles and beef jerky in preparation for another poorly funded, and recklessly-unplanned cruise!

Our destination this time are the pool-clear waters of the Bahamas Islands.

We've slowly been preparing to leave over the last few months, but now preparations are in full swing:

We've informed our employers of our two weeks notice, we've informed the Slip-Owner that November will be our last month in his slip, and today we bought the first of our "Bahamas" provisions which, among other things included: a 10 pound bag a pancake mix, 500 ziplock bags, and 160 ounces of Shampoo and Conditioner for LeeAnn (as a rule of thumb I try not to wash my hair when cruising, it ruins my hobo image).

We have many more supplies to buy, and the list of preparations still to be made to the boat is long. We have less than a month!

At the risk of sounding cheesy, it brings me pleasure to once again invite friends and family to once again travel with us to where ever the breeze might take us - It's not as fun with out you!

Welcome aboard!!


  1. I will be looking forward to joining you on this cruise! Thank you for sharing it, Chad!

  2. Yeah, yeah, yeah.....

    Off to go sailing. Off to adventure.
    Off to go have fun and meet new people and see new things.

    Blah, blah, blah. Makes me sick. I still don't understand why you two didn't choose the conventional lifestyle.

    Go to work, come home, go to work, pay your taxes, go to work, pay your bills, go to work....

    Oh dang,I feel ill now.

    Google search: sailboats.
