Last Day in Seattle

Well it’s been a whirlwind week and I can’t believe that our last day is here already!  The week started last Saturday with the sendoff party.  We had about 60-70 folks we got to say goodbye to.  The great thing was that we got to “see” all our friends.  The downside is that we didn’t actually get to “talk” to a lot of people.  I think Lauren B. and I got to finish maybe 2 conversations between 6pm and 11pm.

Most of our week was spent tying up loose ends such as:

  • Getting final vaccinations
  • Selling vehicles
  • Cancelling medical insurance
  • Cancelling other policies
  • Working a little
  • Tying up finances
  • Dealing with the house title

And also preparation tasks such as:

  • Testing the auto-pilot (which by the way, like Zoolander, cannot turn left – must fix this)
  • Checking the weather and wind off the Pacific Coast (looks like there’s not much wind off Washington right now.
  • Provisioning the boat – 1 Costco trip, 1 Safeway trip and 1 Trader Joes trip
  • Making a map of the boat
  • Determining the watch schedule (6’s and 4’s)

Well it’s two hours til departure so I better get off the computer and get ready!  We’ll post an update once we make it into SanFran.
