The good news is that we should be crossing the half way point in the next day or so...1350 miles! It's really hard to believe that after all that planning and all those years of us talking about it, we're finally crossing this big 'ole ocean. I'm not even really sure what to expect when we get there. We're just now getting around to reading all of our guide books for the area. We've been so focused on getting there, we never talked about what we would actually do!
At night the sky is super dark before the moon comes out and you can see stars for miles but not really see any waves or know what's behind/in front of you. When the moon comes out, you can see the waves and it surprises me every night how big they are and that this little boat can move this fast with only the elements at work. It really is incredible.
Our food/veggies are still going strong. I might have gotten a bit too many peppers as we've had to throw some over board as well as the lettuce but everything else is still keeping pretty good. I'm pretty sure no one has lost any weight on this trip.
Time for me to take over watch as Andy's going to take a nap...thanks for hanging in there with us.
Oh yeah, some folks can see our positions when clicking on the link in the blog and some cannot. If you cannot and want to, try going to the YOTREPS site (you'll have to google it) and look us up by WDF4139 (not Savannah). That seems to work.
