Is the boat ready?
Yes: Many systems have been overhauled including, standing rigging, the hull, engine and drive train, water tanks, batteries and electrical components, wind vane steering, GPS, and Single Side Band.
No: Need to update the solar panels, fix or replace our 1.5 gal/hr water maker, consider buying a life raft and gather books and charts about the South Pacific.
Are we ready?
Yes: Jones'n to go, fairly comfortable with the boat and its systems, healthy enough.
No: A little cash strapped, not sure about having only a crew of two at sea for +- 30 days, got a rental house in Tumwater to worry about.
In the meantime, in the blog world, we're reading about our friends Richard and Brian on Osprey, currently in the Cook Islands at Aitutaki and we are reading about our friends Kirsten and Patrick on Silhouette, in the Cook Islands at Rarotonga and we are reading about

|The Cascadia Flag|
Whew! That sounds like a lot of traveling in old Traveler, just to avoid making the jump this next season. Maybe we should rethink this a little bit more.
