Cruising Milestones In Focus, we slowed down to speed back up

Last week was a long week and my body reminded me this weekend that it was time to slow down.  After getting the sleep my body needed, I’m still in a contemplative mood, thinking it funny that the boat and family are providing more great website and posting content that I’ve ever had before.  I’ve been trying hard to stay on my M/W/F/S posting schedule, aware that I missed Friday, but back on track.   Continue reading

181102- Clean and Jerk Friday

Friday rolled around and I had not been to CrossFit in a week and a half.  Completely my fault and I was feeling it.  I walked into a full workout with a heavy lift day scheduled, doing just the Clean portion of Clean and Jerk’s.  This was good, I needed to work on my technique anyways.  Loved it.

But I paid for taking all that time off from Crossfit with a soreness that left me nearly not walking by nightfall.  This was Delayed Onset Muscle Syndrome (DOMS) at it’s worst.  That’s ok, I deserved it!

What are you doing for yourself?  I treat my body like a tent,,,,do you treat yours like a temple?

Quick Goodbye to the Baja Ha-Ha

A quick note to say “Fair Winds and Following Seas” to all the Baja Ha-Ha Boats leaving San Diego and other points as they start the first leg of the journey down the Pacific Coast of Baja California, Mexico.  It’s my goal to start our own adventure in exactly one year to the day from today….leaving with the 2019 Baja Ha-Ha in October of 19.

Our little Website and Blog was shared again by a much larger and more well-read site, called “It’s Good to be Crazy Sometimes“.  I wholeheartedly agree with this website name and philosophy….as life’s crazy here sometimes and rarely slows down.  If you want to see some great writing and blogging, give her site a read and make sure to drop her a “Like” cause she featured us on a blog share; any publicity helps.

Right now we’re on the dock; but as of next October we want to be heading toward life under a giant sunset somewhere.  Our equipment and energy choices will have an effect on that life, as we have no desire to sit on a dock somewhere for an extended amount of time.  Here’s the story of the curveball thrown at us in the last 3 weeks and how Fate seems to have intervened to help us with some of our equipment and power choices.

Project Windlass: Final Install and Woodwork

Windlass Install for Dummies- if you have never installed a Windlass, this might be the blog and post that will help you along.  To recap, my Windlass was installed and I had finally put it all together, but the custom woodwork around the outside of the Windlass was torn up…..fixing it was out of my skill level….what to do?  Continue reading
