You know those last weeks and days before a giant undertaking, like a big move or a big vacation?
Preparing for our sailing expedition is like a big move AND a big vacation, all rolled into one. So many financial issues to get arranged, as well.
Our to do list has shrunk from thousands of items to finally less than a hundred.
One problem is, certain things were knocked off the list, but then they crept back on again. Like our head (AKA "the toilet" in boat speak).
Ours isn't quite THIS utilitarian. But there are exposed pipes involved.
Anyway, poor Chris has repaired it like 4 times in recent months. I've heard that the head is the bane of every sailors existence, and we're finding that to be true.
