Good turn out, and so-so day (now raining in the Bay Area, so take heart you have not had to suffer our Spring - or better, lack thereof). Sali safe and hit the beach soon.

Must say that I was a little concerned yesterday when the 'position screens' were showing you backtracking towards Hawaii ?? Obviously, a glitch with winlink.org. Craig, don't know you but had to lol at your description of Plato's antics in the cockpit. Maybe he was just getting even with you guys for your having to hose him off to get him to pee early on in the voyage. Anyway, Happy Easter and safe trip the rest of the way. The Best is yet to come.

Comments: Hey there - Happy Easter. Sounds like you guys are bravely working through some adversity but the destination will feel all the better. So one thing to check on for us landlubbers - if we go to the "track us" link on your website, I think your positions are getting posted incorrectly. I think maybe you need to put a negative in front of the north latitude? Either that - or you have turned around and are heading north toward Hawaii. Have a great trip!

Comments: Hi, Loves!! WOW WOW WOW!! What an adventure you've been having!! I have to say that Allyn is slightly relieved that Capt'n Craig was there in his stead!!! Missing you both very much (Plato too), but really enjoying living vicariously! Allyn and I indeed had a toast to E-Day last night. It's truly amazing how well you've managed all the hurdles you've faced! I keep saying...of ALL PEOPLE this shouldn't happen to! You are the most well-prepared cruisers in modern times!! But, perhaps this was the worst of your passages and it gave you the confidence that you can make it through anything! I do have to tell you, sadly, that the chances for our visit next month are looking grim. We just can't seem to get out from under this Folsom transaction, and now Allyn and I are the only ones who really know anything about it. Hopefully, it will wrap up soon, and we'll have some breathing room (and some $$ coming in for poor mom!). If anything changes, and we can easily slide into your plans, we'll definitely let you know. But for now, you should just plug along. We are truly devastated, but sh*! happens and Mom really needs us right now. Love you guys! Hugs to Plato and a big high five to Capt'n Craig. Loving all the blogs, but gotta say he's quite the entertaining one!! XOXO

Comments: Capt. Kim, Staff Commodore Sharon and Craig (and Plato): I have followed the journey since San Diego (not realizing you take in messages until this last post) and wanted you to know April and I have been thinking of you and following the trails and tribulations. What a challenge, both with the tanks and the standing rigging. Glad to hear everyone is in good spirits and the engine will get you to land shortly. Tell Plato I had a deal worked for him in Tiburon, but.... Safe journey, Harold Marsh

Comments: That last post Is NOT mine! You must have other crazy people in you circle of friends. Bob maybe? Sounds like you are getting beat up - you could have stayed home and hired a local gang to flogg you so. Looks like you are not moving so fast - you didn't shoot a big bird did you?

Comments: It has been a few days since our last visit to the site, and we have missed a lot. It's incredible to hear what you have been through in the last 72 hours, and how you have handled each situation. We are both relieved to know you are still underway. We will keep you in our thoughts and hope for calmer seas and consistent winds.

Sounds like things might be calming down a bit.  I've also started following the Powell's.  They're within a couple of days of land.  Had lunch with Paula and talked to Cindi...your ears would be burning.  We're all hoping for the best for you guys.  You're brave and smart...and with such a great attitude!

Comments: Kim, when your brother Bob and I were dispatched by your dad to Chapel Hill to "rescue you" in the early 70's I never dreamed you would end up on an adventure like this.....travel safe and the next time you visit Ashe County we will share a fifth of good Irish whiskey on your brother's tab. Good luck!
