Polar Express....Here We Go

I am leaving Edenton this morning in freezing conditions, 32 degrees here and the threat of a winter storm on my heels. I hope to at least make Manteo today, it seems that a gale is going to develop later tonight, and I'd like to be in a nice protected area if it comes. Gary and Alice are coming to see me off, I think they would really like to see their old girl under sail. Can't blame them for that at all, she is a beautiful boat.

I think I would rather sail in freezing precipitation than cold rain, but I think if we get precip today it is just going to be cold cold rain. I am making a huge thermos of hot tea, and then going to go shower and get the boat ready to go. Check back in later when I have net again.
