With the added input from other sources... the gale on the 23rd will be significant... so.. time to go back to hove to tactics and not fight the forces... I have created a fair cushion of time so I can hove to for the worst of the weather coming... I will be home soon. I am so excited.

Everyone Keep our eye on the Tracker!! Donna
