We're ready to start the Baja Ha-Ha tomorrow. OK, we do still need to wash the boat, fill a water tank and stow some stuff, but we'll get that done early tomorrow morning. The Ha-Ha starts with a kick-off parade through San Diego at 10 a.m. We were told that the Navy's 3rd Fleet is leaving at the same time and they will get the main channel; we're relegated to on side. Damn argy-bargy Navy.
We're making friends with other Ha-Ha participants. Many boats are continuing on a similar itinerary so I expect some of these new friendships will grow over the next few months.
I'm tired of spending money on boat stuff. It will be great to be at sea, where there is nothing to spend money on. Cabo will be a bit expensive, but after that we should settle into a more reasonable money burn rate.
This will be the last blog via broadband until we get to Cabo. I'll be posting via satellite email as we sail down Baja until I can get internet access after we arrive on November 5. I won't be able to post the link to the blog on Facebook, so if that is how you have been following you might want to subscribe to email updates by submitting your email address under the "Follow by Email" heading in the right sidebar.
