Mile to Mile: We have a few more projects today to get the boat ready to leave at the marina for a little over a week. I worked on the fish finder/depth finder for a while trying to get it to boot up – it doesn’t seem to be getting the correct voltage. Richard from It’ll Be Alright helped with the project but we were unsuccessful so I’ll bring it home to try a couple more things. I installed a bilge pump and switch so if any water gets in the boat will remain dry. We also purged some more things we have decided we don’t need that we will bring home with us. It’ll be weird leaving our home of the past 2+ months to go home to our “dirt” house. But this is a nice safe place to leave her.
It’ll Be Alright invited us over for dinner in the evening for a great chicken and rice dish – what a wonderful sendoff. They are moving on to Tarpon Springs tomorrow and we are getting up very early to hitch a ride with Mr. Charlie from Sea Hag into Gainesville to pick up a rental car for our trip to Tampa and the airport tomorrow.
We can’t wait for a Thankgiving feast. Cindy is especially excited to have an oven so she can go on a baking/cooking marathon. I guess I better take another walk to get ready for holiday treat season.
