My plan is to email our position and general weather conditions, catch of the day, deepest, darkest thoughts (well, maybe not) daily so that all of our friends, family and followers won't worry too much about us while we're crossing that big pond out there. I won't be able to upload any pictures since I'll be sending the emails through our SSB radio, so you'll have to wait until we get there to see those. We're anticipating anywhere from 17-21 days - give or take.
All that's really left to do (from a big project standpoint) is to change the oil and provision. I'm sure I'll be complaining about the small things over the next few days but in general, we're ready to go. Even Jake is ready. He asked me this morning if we couldn't just go ahead and leave - "I'm ready for the South Pacific."
So there you have it. I'm going to stop now and keep this short in case my little test doesn't work. Keep us in your prayers and please don't forget to follow! It's really nice to have this connection back to everyone and it means a lot to us that we can spend our days with you, even if it's just through my big mouth on the internet. It can get lonely out here :).
