Safely in Mobile

We arrived safely in Mobile right at noon today after about a 36-hour run from Marathon. Our record perfect weather for the entire trip was spoiled by thunderstorms and messy seas for about the last 75 miles, and we increased speed to get into Dog River in Mobile a little earlier than we had planned.

The last leg from Marathon was slightly spoiled by the fact that we never really got the new water pump working right, so we brushed teeth and flushed toilets from a jug of water. Showers, we went without for two days.

But all-in-all, it was a fabulous trip on a great boat with an outstanding crew. I always jump at a chance to travel with Alvin as I learn so much in the process, and David was equally talented and a joy to travel with. I hope they’ll invite me back.

Thanks for following our progress on the adventure.

Hi Dad- I am glad to hear that you made it back safely! I have been following your blog and so have many of my friends. I posted a link to it on my Facebook page and everyone thinks that you need to write a book.
