Getting Ready for departure

27 November 2008 | Ottawa
It's been a busy month of preparation for our extended sailing journey down south.

I have purchased a SSB radio, watermaker, solar panels, sea anchor and rode, EPIRB, updated charts, satellite phone (613) 855-2000, new instruments, new folding bikes, and (at Louise's insistence) plastic wine glasses..... she is not amused with the broken glass.
Louise has acquired a fantastic pressure cooker (thank you Rita!) and an eclectic array of galley instruments to assist in her food preparations.

Louise had her surgery last week, and next Monday is the final doctor's appointment. We hope to take our fully loaded Mini south the next day and arrive in Florida in time for the SSCA (Seven Seas Cruising Association) meeting to be held the following weekend in Melbourne Florida where I hope to pick up a sea drogue.

So it goes.........more stuff!

Hopefully we can escape the white winter and enjoy a reasonable drive to Florida.

I'll try to update the blog as we move south depending upon internet access.

Until the next time!
