Tate and I finally leave Montana and spend 4 days in Idaho and numerous days at Truck stops along the way. In the end we make it to Washington State (the Pacific Northwest!) and start the next leg of our adventure.
***Some exciting news at the end of the video…Tate and I miss Sundowner (who wouldn’t?) and the plan as of now is to sell everything in October and head back to the boat. We have about a month of work in Panamarina where we’ll pull the bow sprit bolts, get the bottom painted and replace all 4 batteries. This will be our last boatyard before crossing the Pacific. After that work is complete we are hoping for another spearfishing season in the San Blas Islands!! Around February of 2017 we’ll be looking to cross through the canal and prepare for the Pacific crossing into French Polynesia.
The plan is to keep making the videos, starting with our preparation for flying back to Panama and getting the boat back livable again. Filming, editing and producing the videos in the locations outside of the US that we travel is going to be so much harder though but we want to give it a try. It’s hot and humid pretty much all of the time (resource intensive video editing software doesn’t work well in the heat), there is often salt around which is rough on electronics and lastly the biggest issue will be internet uploads.
We’ll likely produce shorter videos, maybe 5-10 mins once a week. We are excited about sharing our lives for leg two of the sailing trip through video instead of solely the blog. We know the blog has been somewhat neglected since the RV trip but we are trying to work out a way to still make the videos but also keep up with more quality blog posts like we used to write. Stay tuned to see how it all unfolds!
Anyways that’s the scoop:)
