Bon Voyage

Yesterday, we ran out of time as it was getting closer to the time to go. As you may know we completely took that boat apart and rebuilt it in a week. So as the time came to an end we just threw everything in the boat so that we could make it to the Bon Voyage Rally on time.

We left a few items by accident including our compass. We were heading out of the bay and I was still wireing up the lights. Jason, a wonderful hero, who was blown up in Iraq rode with us.

When we got out to sea, we discovered the I did not like the new GPS system we had. Can you believe it did not have a Compass Page.

We still made it way ahead of schedule. Thanks to Jason, he drove most of the way.

I am sitting in the Pineland Marina on Pine Island, using his computer. This guy was unbelievable. He would not let me pay for the gas. He bought a whole case of shirts, and loaded us up with supplies.

Wonderful, wonderful, people.

We are getting ready to take off, both of us are dead tired, yet we have swindled another person to come and drive. Cool. He will soon learn that this is a rugged ride. Yet, still a safe ride.

It has been a great day and we will be in Islamorada tomorrow morning at the Bass Pro Shop. See you there.

  1. You are making good time. It looks like standing in the GAP

    Did you see the hamburger joint south of Boca Grande with the dollars taped to the ceiling?

    Go not in your own strength, but in the power of the Holy Spirit. Do not test God, allow him to test you. Listen to your dreams. Follow the signs of angels.
