I can't remember the last time I was this stressed.   After a week of long days and late nights, we still aren't ready to go.  An old sailing friend of mine once divided boat owners into two classes.  The "carpenters" work on their boats, "getting ready to go cruising," forever and never go.  The "sailors" go whether they are ready or not.  I guess that makes us "sailors," since we are leaving at 2:00 with the tide, ready or not.

We don't yet have a working stove and the SSB antenna is still lying on the deck.  We have a literal truckload of stuff to stow and we have three hours.   I'd better start working on Plan C.  Plan A was to leave yesterday.  Once we leave the house in the next hour, we won't be back for months.  We'll be out of here!
