Day 1 Big Success

May 4, 2019

We made it!  Drive, Uber, train, train, Uber and then we were at the boat.

Good news, the docks now have power and water so we are juicing up and we added some water to the tanks.

Today was about getting the boat ready. We did a bunch of  stuff. Most importantly we added the reffing lines to the mainsail. This turned out to be a critical step for a number of reasons.

  1. We got to coordinate raising the main
  2. one of the cars was backwards and was binding
  3. there was only one of the reefing lines in place and it was wrong

Fortunately we had almost no wind at the marina so we were able to do this docked rather than out on the lake.

Tomorrow we are on the move.  Motor or sail to Bluffers Park

I don’t ever want to go to Whole Foods again. I hope we have enough food.

Me: “Do you have any normal whole wheat bread”

Kid that works there: “This is our bread section”

So, I hope I got edible bread  no Norwegians were harmed in making the bread. Not sure about the Glutens
