Burning the Midnight Oil

Today I had a guy ask me when we were leaving on our "big trip".  I told him mid-to-end September-ish.  He said with a cautionary nod, "That's coming up quick".  I might have paused just a hair too long before I said "You're telling me".

As if we didn't know that.  Sheesh.  We are on the boat every day at least 8 hours a day and a lot of the time it seems we are taking two steps forward and one step back.  One look at this page, however, and it's all worth it. Dang!  We've done a lot!

We're burning the midnight oil...and the 8am oil, and the noon oil, and the happy hour fact, we are burning all sorts of oil except engine oil - as we have yet to leave our cozy slip more than once since we arrived.  

We're working on that...

Tonight, the name of the game was connecting "shunts" to our batteries.  "Shunt" sounds like a bad word.

Day is done, gone the sun...
No matter how many times I straighten up this table, the mess just comes back bigger and stronger...
Scott and Walt, figuring out where all "shunts"  will go on our batteries.

We'll be back at the boat at 8am.  For now, we're sitting back with some wine and kicking up our (dirty) feet.

Night night,

Brittany & Scott
