PREPARING FOR YEAR #2, ISLAND HOPPING! PLEASE VISIT ARCHIVES AND STAY TUNED!
A friend once said that a boat like ours is more like a big lovable dog--it needs to be walked, loved and well fed. We agree. We've nurtured Freebird for the last year, groomed and tended to all of her issues and systems, fed her many thousands of gallons of diesel now and she purrs like a lion. But before we cast off lines, meet our other pet, SPOT. He's small, cute and only needs batteries--many batteries when you forget to turn him off.
Our little techno-buddy will keep track of our journey and bark our coordinates to anyone who wishes to follow us. So, whenever you'd like to see our present location, click the SPOT US button on the navigation bar, click on the photo of SPOT,and then enter the requested password - freebird. Instead of a blow by blow of our trip, each future blog entry will be small ditty of the day--the best or worst of our journey.
