Merry Christmas!

After a lot of Brad’s hard work, finally Joint Venture is ready to head south. The weather has changed again, so we’re now targeting the morning of December 27th to cast off the dock lines.

Catching Up

With all of the excitement around our failing water pump, we didn’t get a chance to post about our last few days of vacation with my parents.
