Ahoy, We have been very remiss in posting to our blog. The last 4 days have been very interesting for us. We have been out of wifi range. We now know that we can safely survive stormy weather! We had thunderstorms, high seas and high winds. We love our boat! It traveled thru the yucky weather like a champ. The captain certainly helped, too. Greg was awesome. One evening at anchor we watched the most incredible lightning show. Thunderheads were across the sky to our north. The light show was continuous for hours. The only comparison we can think of is that it is like the end of a fireworks show when many explosions are set off at once and it looks like one BIG one. Instead of lasting for a few minutes, it was several hours. Thankfully, it was to our north and not on top of us. Yesterday afternoon we arrived at Old Bahama Bay Marina at West End. It is the holding area to wait for good weather to cross the gulf stream. We are thinking it will be Thursday. This morning is sunny and we are enjoying being able to dry out a little. Our bed quilt and pillows are spread on the foredeck in the sun. It will be nice to get rid of some of the dampness!! We are certainly not familiar with this and have received lots of suggestions from other cruisers on dealing with the humidity. There is definitely some advantage to the dry Colorado climate!
Our plan is to travel back around Florida to St. Petersburg and leave our boat there for the summer. We have found a few more tasks that need to be done!!! As the cruisers say: "It's a BOAT! Break Out Another Thousand". We will do a few things, then get it ready for the summer. We plan to leave Florida the middle of May, visit Mary's cousins and be in Colorado the 1st part of June. We are beginning to realize that it will be strange because home to us is Wheat Ridge and we are going to Silverthorne. Our time from the sale of our house to sailing on the boat went so fast that we did not have much time to think about it. Miss all our family and friends. We will keep you posted.

About: Greg has been sailing since he was 21. I grew up in North Dakota and started taking advantage of the constant winds. After selling my bicycle store in 2006 we got more serious about living our dream on a sailboat. Greg and his wife purchased Mile High Dream in 2013.
Extra:
Greg and Mary had owned Nada Mas, a 23' South Coast, on Lake Dillon in Colorado for 33 years. We chartered in the Caribbean and Calif. numerous times. We were excited to begin our dream. While waiting for a weather window in the Truks and Caicos, Mary died unexpectedly Jan. 6 2015 after a [...]
