San Carlos Marina
Keith
12/27/2007

While all the other RVs were in little rows in the town's RV parks, I drove right to the water and stayed there for three nights without complaint by anyone that I know of. The police drove by several times and never even raised an eyebrow. Eventually Kevin from Canada and his dog Boomer arrived and joined me in Kevin's "dog house" camper. The fishing is supposed to be good around 5:00 p.m. this time of year and folks came by to fish along the shore every night. By the way, I know I'm not actually sailing or cruising in some of these blog entries, but traveling to San Carlos and living with the cruisers for a few days is all I can have for the time being. Before long, I will be living the life with them. Until then, I'm a cruising groupie.

Singmeaway Waiting on the Hard
Keith, late December, 2007
12/27/2007, Marina Seca, San Carlos, Mexico

And there she is. Waiting to be sailed. And not too much worse for wear having sat there since August and then since May. A little rust here and there, but that's to be expected under the circumstances. There's something so enjoyable about meandering through a dry storage area for sailboats. All the different designs. All the adventures had and waiting to be had.

RV Park in Hermosillo, Mexico
Keith
12/27/2007

I was so tired from all the hustle bustle of getting down to Mexico, I had to stop for the night before my final destination. Mexican RV parks can be rather bare bones affairs. Just a large or small lot with hook-ups. I was just happy for a place to rest. This is the view as the the sun was about to rise the next morning. Things looked a lot better after a good night's sleep.

Off On Another Sailing Adventure in Mexico
Keith - late December, 2007
12/27/2007, Hermosillo Toll Area

I took the last week of the year off and headed down to San Carlos, Mexico with Jake and Anne to get them more acclimated to sailing (I do it for them, of course). We flew the Bounder. Evidently, there are quite a few other people who travel to Mexico for the holidays because the line of cars before this toll lasted for well over an hour.

Hobie One is Sold
Keith
12/16/2007, Tucson, Arizona

This is the gentleman who purchased the Hobie One yesterday as he is about to drive away. In preparation for long-term cruising, I've started to sell many of the toys I accumulated when I was experiencing the trial lawyer life, including the Hobie One. While I was going through the boat with the purchaser, another guy was taking my Honda VTX 1300 for a test ride. He put a deposit on it and it will be gone by early this week. It doesn't make sense to possess all of these material objects if they just have to be stored while I am gone. The Hobie One has a sentimental place in my heart because it was the first sailboat I ever purchased and owned. Going to have to put Sailing Arizona on hold for now while I go ocean cruising. That little boat sure could fly when the wind kicked up. Hold on tight then, Robert.

40 days after cruising

12/02/2007, The Law Office of Keith A. Singer, Tucson, Arizona

At my desk at the Law Office. This photo was taken recently for my Collaborative Divorce listing and bio (www.divorcewisely.co). This time next year that whole scene will be but a compelling memory. I've decided to depart in May of 2008 for a long-term sailing and travel adventure.

20 Days After Cruising
Keith
11/09/2007, Tucson, Arizona

It's been about 20 days since I took my last cruising adventure. I've been litigating during most of my waking hours since then. Trial after trial, Client prep meeting after Client prep meeting. Reviewing Legal Assistant work product and supervising and prioritizing their projects. What the hell happened - I was on the water road to the Bahamas and instead I'm lying in bed awake at 2:35 in the morning reading other people's blogs because I'm too worked up from litigating to sleep properly. Giving up the good to go for the great takes a lot of courage, but maybe its not as crazy as the alternative.

County BBQ Lunch at Kings
Keith - late October, 2007
10/20/2007, Along the way to Rollie, NC

Even though I ate the rest of the country dinner in the early morning hours while I prepared Tropical Dreamer for storage, and even though I had just eaten a country breakfast at the Waffle House, I couldn't resist the country BBQ lunch buffet for $6.95 at Kings. I'll spare you the details, but suffice it to say it was gluttonous. So much so that I had to pull into the back of a gas station and take a power nap in order to make it to Rollie Airport without getting too sleepy.
