Thank you to everyone who braved the rain and came to the boat Friday to say goodbye and some to see the boat for the first time! We enjoyed having everyone at the dock. Special thanks to Bride and Jason for lending us their rain tarp and party tent, which fit perfectly on the dock and sheltered us from the elements. Also thank you to Jill, who let us all crash her house later that evening to escape from the rain and still enjoy our friends' company.
Here is our tentative schedule for the week, through Price Rupert:
Monday 9/2: Leave mid-morning, staying in Taku Harbor Mon. night
Tuesday 9/3: Taku Harbor - to Hobart Bay
Wednesday 9/4: Hobart Bay - to Petersburg

Saturday 9/7: Coffman Cove

We will be sending out a GPS tracking signal once a day, and a little email message via our Delorme Inreach. If you want to be added to the email list for the tracker, send me a short email firstname.lastname@example.org.
