After a long respite I think we are ready for our first voyage of 2017. It’s been a rough year; my co-pilot/navigator fell and broke her arm in late March. A week before that event our 16 y/o cat, Izzy, was diagnosed with bone cancer in his jaw ( amazingly he is still with us) and a week or two after that I broke the 4th metatarsal bone in my right foot ( getting out of bed). I am in a boot, but am hoping I am on the mend enough to have a normal first voyage on July, 1st. I see the podiatrist on June 30th for x-rays, etc. so that is cutting things pretty close to cast off time :-). Currently I am driving my car using my right, big toe to work the pedals, as it is impossible to work the pedals with a boot ( although I did try).
Anyway, The Mothership is Un-Winterized, re-insured for the next three months, and I think, as ready as can be expected. We are just going to Seaside, Oregon for a few days. No major voyages planned this year. We are planning on driving to Eastern Oregon to catch the eclipse in Aug. ( along with a gazillion other crazies).
Greetings from The Mothership!
Safe travels to all in 2017!!
Believe in the Cosmic Giggle………it’s real! 🙂
