09/23/2011, Southern Mexico
Hurricane season in the eastern Pacific runs from mid May thru the end of October. History shows that the Northern sea is pretty safe until September and October. Tropical Storm Hilary was upgraded to Hurricane status yesterday and is currently gaining strength off of the Southern Mexico coast...and headed north. Sharon and I were already planning on leaving Tucson Tuesday morning on the Autobus, we should be in San Carlos by Tuesday afternoon and will be able to take care of any final preparations should Hilary end up in The Sea of Cortez as the current forecast shows.
Where to meet us 2011/2012Steve and Sharon
Sharon arrived in San Diego yesterday. We are now in final preparation for our return to Mexico next week.
09/17/2011, The River (Colorado)
It kind of funny that after sailing, my other boating interest is high powered Jet boats and/or waverunners. I Sold my 215 HP Seadoo before I left on my cruise and I haven't been back to "The River" since. My good buddy Frank also sold his waverunner and purchased a high-powered Yamaha Jet boat.
Home in San DiegoSteve
09/11/2011, San Diego
Well I finally made it back to San Diego. I had an overnight weather delay in DC, but arrived in San Diego Thursday morning and within hours was in the middle of a blackout which effected over 7 million people. There seems to be a rumor going around that there is some sorta black cloud following me around. I have been in several areas over the past month and a half that have experienced some sort of weird weather or other strange occurrence. I have decided that I'm going to blame it on Global warming.
Goodbye New EnglandSteve
09/05/2011, Brattleboro, Vt.
Today is my last day in Brattleboro, tomorrow I'll start my journey back to San Diego where I will spend about three weeks visiting my Daughters and my friends. While in San Diego I will also start the process of stocking up on things we will be needing to take back to Si Bon. I have had an amazing time here in New England, Shaybo and I have been camping, we've been to New York City and we visited Boston and Portland. We've attended many parties, a Pop Warner fundraiser, a couple of birthday celebrations and a funeral. I've met so many new friends it's almost unbelievable...I was going to try to list them all on my blog...but the list was soooo long I decided to just give out a few thanks and hope I don't offend anyone I didn't mention. Thanks to Lara, Delaine, Chris, Matt, Pam, Courtney and Chris for allowing us to stay in your homes while visiting and/or after drinking to much. Thanks to the McKenney's, Ogden's, Currier's and Millerick's (pic) for welcoming me into your circle of friends with open arms...I will always refer to you guys as the Kampersville Klan. Thanks to Ryan and Brian for showing me the proper way to drive a golf ball. Thanks and condolences to the entire Fletcher family. So many other people are popping into my head right now...Megan, Robyn, Pat, Karen....ohhh s*&$ I've gotta end this blog now before it gets any longer. Last but not least A VERY special thanks to Kathy Brooks for welcoming me into her home...there's a saying comparing house guests and fish, that after three days they both stink...well Kathy put up with me for over a month. New England is a beautiful place but you guys (and anyone I may have left out) are who makes it a special place.
09/01/2011, Boston, Ma.
Since we were already in Boston to see the Sox vs Yankees, we decided to spend another day and try to see as much of Boston as possible. Originally we were going to take one of those hop on hop off tours, however due to our bad experience with the Duck tour in Portland and the fact that neither one of us mind walking, we both decided to walk the Freedom Trail. The Freedom Trail takes you around many of Boston's historic sites. So, we hopped on the "T" and rode it in to the Harbor area where we set off walking the Freedom Trail. We walked to Fanuel Hall, an area full of shops, restaurants and Historic buildings. We came across a street performer that was just starting his show, he was kinda a goofy dude dressed in a kilt and playing the bagpipes. I'm not sure what it is about me that seems to attract attention...but for some reason goofy picked me out of the crowd to hold his unicycle while he climbed on it. Sounds easy enough..but he made a big part of his show by shimming up the unicycle sorta half on half off, pretending to slip and fall and stepping on our shoulders and heads while he slowly made his way to the unicycle's seat (pic).
