Running out of time

Fall is quickly approaching. I have not heard the dreaded travel lift yet, but quite a few boats have their sails removed, and are ready for the haul out. A quick count of cars in the parking lot this morning only revealed seven, so we are down to approximately seven live-aboard's at this point. We have an eighty degree day today, then this week a cold front moves in, and the high will struggle to reach sixty. Deb is very tuned to the weather, and I'm thinking that getting up at 4:45 AM to walk to the showers is not in her plans, when it's about 45 degrees. I might last a little longer, and get some stuff removed and organized for the winter months. Could this winter in Rochester NY be the last?

The solar panels have been doing a great job keeping the batt's charged, and the davits work great. So, at the boat show, I will be scoping out wind generators, alternator/regulators, windlass, and LED lighting. I will also be scoping out the Middleton tavern, McGarvey's, and the Rams Head  :)


  1. Meet us for beers when you get to town....

  2. Sounds good. I'll e-mail when we get there.

  3. Time is definitely flying by! We feel like it's getting away from us and we haven't gotten done half of what we hoped to by now! Oh well ... it's about the journey right?!
