Starting to get closer
We will be leaving the USA soon! Posts have dwindled since arriving in the Keys. But that will all change soon. What a wonderful place to be for the time that we have been here. However our Gypsy Bones are itching, and it's time to move on. Over the next 5 weeks we are putting the elbow grease into the boat to get her ready for the next leg of the journey. Bahamas first then off to Panama. Within the next 2 weeks keep your eyes peeled for new posts. The big ordeal at hand right now is to complete the upper rigging and attach the spreaders. Once that is done we set sail on the Coup for our first time ever. Too many years have past since her last sail. The collection of friends we have acquired over the past 9 months have offered to crew for our first sail. With all their knowledge I feel we will be in the right hands. Or current mission is to conquer small to do lists that can be tackled every week until we are ready to set sail. It's a much better approach that seems a lot less intimidating then our previous lists. Now it's more manageable and that's a breathe of fresh air. Keep you all posted, until then be good to one another.
