This will be post #1 for our sailing adventure. In fact we have not yet retired (3 days away) and we are still 500 miles from the ocean!

In a few days Shellie and I will be on Moondance heading west to Portland on the Columbia River. That will be our new home for 2 or 3 months.

Don't miss our retirement party on Feb. 1 and stay tuned as we explore the globe.

Day after our Retirement Party, we packed up our land based possessions and hit the road to S/V Moondance...we untied the lines at 3am the morning after to head from Umatilla Marina in Umatilla Oregon to Salpare Bay Marina in Portland Oregon. Due to winter weather, we began with quite an adventure...icicles and snow on deck helped our extra crew members (two snow people) make the entire trek without thawing...all else went without a hitch through 3 locks and under 4 bridges to land us safely in our new marina home for the spring!

To send us off in style many of our friends, family and co-workers showed up to help us celebrate our retirement and upcoming adventures...we are truly thankful for all of their support and treasure our relationships with them!
