You're Making the Crew Blush

Dylan and Dee Dee are blushing from all the attention their recent hiatus from their blog has created. And the kids are certainly not new to lots of attention. Many have written concerned that they are no longer doing their blog but they want to assure you that is not the case.

They blame it on their mom who has been slacking off lately. After all, what else does she possible have to do other than to see to the needs of her crew?

Dylan and Dee Dee have been enjoying some time in Portland while Mom and Dad sort through some boat projects, Garmin responsibilities, and life decisions. Mom and Dad bought them a car and found them a dog park. Life was good but was getting a little cold.

Next thing the crew knows we're bringing the boat to Albany, NY. What?!?!?

Red Head will be spending the winter there while she receives a spit and polish - new paint job, new bow thruster, and a few other things "since she's already out of the water." How will the pampered crew survive a cold Albany winter you ask? (That's Daddy hauling the anchor one cold morning.)

They won't. Red Head will spend the winter there. The crew has rented a house in Panama City Beach. They'll be heading south shortly with a brief stop at Grandma's. This will allow them to help Mom and Dad finish the Garmin transition and enjoy some time at the beach. Dad already found a nearby dog park.

How will this salty crew do living on land for the winter? Stay tuned.

I was wondering why you were heading the boat North while everyone else is heading South! Safe travels!

Wow! Since selling Drift Away, I've been out of the loop (see what I did there?). Active Captain has been sold to Garmin, you've bought a new boat, which is now in Albany (I assume Scarano's, which I where I used to store my Hallberg-Rassey Mistral for the winter). And now you guys are snowbirds and spending winters in Florida. Holy crap.

Pamela and I sold our boat, bought ten acres in the Adirondack Mountains, and found we were living among Sasquatch. After one smacked me with a tree and broke my neck, we put the land on the market and now live just outside of Ocala, Florida.

Pamela manages a horse ranch on Amelia Island. I am an author now. I published four Sasquatch-related books, and I just finished one about our cruise on Drift Away, the first in a trilogy. It isn't published since I am negotiating with a publisher.

Boy, check out for a few years and look what happens. Good to see you guys are doing well, and I love your new boat. I'll have to check in more often.
