We made it! We arrived at our dock around 7:00 pm Wednesday. We're all very happy to be home. Special thanks to Scott and Ron for all their help. We all got along wonderfully and are still friends. Our wives all met us at the dock and I can't think of many times that I've been that happy. Thanks to all for your prayers and encouragement throughout the passage.

Not much blogging over the last few days. We had a tough time with some pretty serious weather. Probably 16-18 foot seas, gale force winds. A broaching wave knocked Scott over, hitting his rear on the winch. So, he now has a permanent tattoo "Lewmar" (the manufacturer of the winch) right on his bottom. That's what he gets for cavorting with wenches. Should give him a friendly reminder of the trip.

The last couple of days has proven that the story in "Lord Of The Flies" is more reality than fiction, in how societies form anytime a few people are stuck together in similar circumstances, and how power corrupts as "leaders" emerge and assert their power over everyone else. Here aboard S/V Adventure, it's dessert, and not a conch shell that dictates who has supreme power.
