Wow times flies by March 13 2013 was my last entry. For those that asked, no I didn't quit. I just stopped posting. There was a life changing event in my life that changed my life. My only brother Charles, or Bubba as I always called him passed away. I had dreams of us sailing on Nellie Jo as we always wanted to "Sail away". I can remember looking at sail boats with him decades ago and talking about the places we would go, things we would see and things we would do. His wife Brenda was on board with that dream and I believe she still holds that dream. She is a free spirit that loves life and still follows her heart. I love her as a sister and I hope to get her on board as a crew member when we do the Baja-haha in 2016. Bubba may not be physically with us any more but is with me in heart and spirit.  He will be on every trip I take no matter how short or long. To honor my brother my wife and I decided to name our monitor wind-vane Charles and or Bubba.

I will continue to update the blog on a regular bases and bring everyone up to speed on the progress of the boat and the preparations we are making for our escape from the rat race.

I apologize for stopping the blog so abruptly and hope you understand.

 Stay tuned for up dates!
