    After weeks of gloomy skies, the sunshine is back!It has awoken us out of a stupor, and shone the light on the fact that we will be leaving, really leaving, the week after next. This has snapped us out of our let-it-happen mode into a make-it-happen...
  • Sandy exits the stage
    on Oct 30, 2012
    Sandy made her presence felt all night, but left us and surrounding area without causing any problems. The power stayed on, which was great as we currently rely on electric heaters for warmth. This needs to be remedied next season, but for now we are...
  • Hurricane Sandy almost here
    on Oct 29, 2012
    This morning, with a steady 15-20 knots of wind blowing curtesy of Hurricane Sandy, we answered the question of how we are going to get Chopper to land to do his business. We put on our foul weather gear and do it... It was actually kinda fun in...
  • Superstorm Sandy
    on Oct 29, 2012
    Found a great site streaming live footage from the Storm. Now Tcan stop watching the wind indicator because Hurricane Sandy has turned into Superstorm Sandy. This means lesser winds, more rain and snow in points West. The biggest gust we've seen has...

  • Hurricane Sandy is Coming
    on Oct 28, 2012

  • Pre-auction

    Time has been flying by and new developments are on the horizon. We had an offer from an "investor" who proposed to buy us a house to fix up and sell. He would front the money for the initial purchase, we would do the necessary upgrades on our dime,...
  • Not Sailing
    on Oct 10, 2012
    Since the sale of Tara we have done zero work on Me Voy. In fact it feels like we haven't done much of anything, especially sailing. The total number of times we will have gone sailing this year  is six. That's pretty pathetic. Why is that?Travi...
  • Chopper and Billy
    on Oct 6, 2012
    No matter where we go, or what we do, Chopper just continues to smile. He's the most easy going, happy dog I've ever met.Living in such close quarters with a dog and a cat takes some practice. I mean how many times  week do we say "oh I'm sorry...
  • Nest Eggs and Chickens
    on Oct 4, 2012
    Since the sale of Tara, there has been a cloud of unknowing hanging over our life. "What's the next step?" it seems to ask.Naturally, since our "ultimate dream" is to live off the land, we quickly assumed that is the next step. So began our search fo...

  • Asheville
    on Sep 26, 2012
     Look up Asheville and you will get words like, funky, organic, diverse, spiritual mecca, and my favorite, "City of Light". You will get testimonies of people who have been "magnetically drawn" to the "crystal mountain peaks", and vibe  of...

    We're taking a lot more stuff then that, but our packs are ready to go. We're on our way to see some prospective land in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Which means... camping! Billy's tail is twitching with antispation, and Travi's is wa...
  • Galley love
    on Sep 5, 2012
    I love cooking in our galley. Everything is within reach yet we have more counter top space then in any of our  other "mobile situations".We went vegetarian three years ago, and this has made cooking even more fun. Now instead of relying on meat...
