Quiet Christmas Day

I wanted to post these after making a trip to the marina Christmas morning and a great dinner but because my computer was sick I had to wait to get the pictures. Here are a few shots from a quiet peaceful Christmas.


It was a great day, while we were sad not to spend it with family, we did spend it it with some great friends, the Lisco's. A wonderful family who welcomes us into their home during holidays to enjoy wonderful food and laughs. Thank you guys!

A few shots from a quiet and peaceful marina. Earlier in the day before dinner I went to the marina to see how Sal was. It was a chance for me to reflect how good I have it. A couple of years earlier Sal and cruising was just a dream. In 2010 Crystal and I walked these very docks looking at boats and dreaming of someday owning and cruising on a sailboat. I am very happy and grateful that 2 years later we have our Sal and are working towards our goal of cruising. I would like to say I am grateful for all those that have helped up to this point. I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas.

FBI Virus!

I got a damn virus on my computer here just before Xmas and just now got my PC up and running again. I got the FBI Virus that has been going around. Apparently there are different versions and I happened to get the lastest one which locked me out of my PC and told me my computer was in violation of federal law, but if I ran to CVS, Walmart or any other convient place I could buy a $400 card to unlock it......A bunch of BS! Anyway if you read this please be sucks!

We haven't forgotten about the blog!

Been really busy over the last few weeks. I have just finished up a semester at college and work somehow got out of control. All that and I am going for my General class FCC license that will allow me to use HF frequencies. My test is tomorrow night so I have been very busy studying in any and all free time. This weekend after a strong cold front passes it looks like I will be able to get out on the water for a much needed sail. I am planning on making a post here over the next week or so recapping the year and posting our achievemnts towards our goal of cruising. Everyone that follows don't give up, we are still here and have a lot to write about. Happy Holidays!

Memorable moments of 2012, more to come!

N4WIS, USS Wisconsin Radio Club

Remembering Pearl Harbor!
I was able to join a great group of amateur radio operators onboard BB-64, USS Wisconsin, over the weekend. They hold special events aboard her 4 times a year. Since I was a new member of the Wisconsin Radio Club , N4WIS, I was quite excited to be there. It was a great time and brought back very good memories of my Navy days. A fun and meaningful day.
