Looks like a short postpone….

Jim is doing really well on getting the camper/hauler in shape. Installed the on demand water heater today. Don’t have to worry about scalding yourself but it will do. It sure isn’t as nice as the heater aboard Slow Motion.

We are going to a carshow/swapmeet in Moultrie, GA the weekend of Nov 18,19,20.  We should be home and unloading the camper and loading the boat by the 21st.  Then we’ll head  to the West Coast of FL to meet Larry and Diane and their boat  “A Dollar More”.

If Jim’s brother, Carl, is available we’ll pick him up and have him take the truck and trailer back to his house. That way we wont have to worry about it and we can cruise back to Sanford via the ICW and the St Johns River.

Getting ready for an Oct cruise near Pensacola, FL

Larry and Diane have spent a lot of time getting their boat, “A Dollar More”', ready to tow from OK to Pensacola, FL. We are to meet them there late Oct.

Jim has been busy on the camper/hauler (car hauler made into a camper and car hauler) made with parts from our old camper. It was literally falling apart.

I’ve cleaned most of the interior of the boat, checked for charts and charts for the chart plotter. Just ordered a GPS for my computer so I can use Offshore Navigator Lite as a backup, if necessary.

We are having perfect boating weather…cool nights…warm days. I’ve even had a small fire in the woodstove early in the morning to enjoy my coffee by.

Most of the Monarch and Queen butterflies will have emerged and if not the “Butterfly House” can be put on the back porch with the door open so they can fly away when ready.

What’s wrong with this picture?


Oh yeah…..the truck is hooked up to the wrong vehicle.

Check back at the end of the month to see if we made it to the water.
