Greetings From Maryland

Yes, you read that right.  We are in Maryland.  Did we just set a speed record for sailing a Leopard?  Well, unfortunately not.  While our insurance folks would like to hear the boat is with us, it is still tucked in its slip in Florida.

We are in the process of repositioning our cars so we will have one available in the area when we find a place for the hardtop work. An old friend and work colleague has very generously offered to babysit a car while we move the boat. So today we made the drive up with both cars so we could drop one off with him.

It was a 14 hour trip and we are exhausted, so I'll keep this short. While we haven't decided on exactly where to do the work while we wait out hurricane season, at least we will have a car in the area to help once we do find something.

Here are a few random observations from the trip.  It seems that most parts of the country with seasons only have two of them: winter and road construction. Virginia and S. Carolina have cheaper gasoline prices than the other states we were as much as 40 cents a gallon.  S. Carolina has lots of billboards advertising canned vegetables. Travel by interstate may be fast, but isn't very scenic...billboards not withstanding.

I'll try and write more later... I'm going to bed.


  1. Just don't check Baltimore Craigslist Used Car section.

    1. Please...sell it. I have the title and that is what will cost them. :-)
