Mike - weather cold and clear
After 5 years of talking about doing this, a blog page, we are finely getting something done to share some of our adventure with our family, friends, and interested others. This is just a start and we will be upgrading the page with pictures and a map feature in the future once we figure out how this all works.

I am at home in Reno finishing up a couple of construction projects I had committed to while Chris is back at the boat in Mazatlan getting an insurance survey done and choosing new fabrics for the main salon. We still hope to do some cruising around the area just South of Puerto Vallarta this winter. We have signed up for the Banderas Bay regatta in March so we better get the boat in shape and moving.
