Carolina bound

Just a very quick update here because we are under the gun. The Red Cross called this morning and we are being deployed to South Carolina for a possible landfall there of Hurricane Irene.

I've just spent the last fifteen minutes contacting various people and waving off all the plans we'd made for the next couple of days, including three boat viewing appointments and tonight's cruise out of Fort Pierce with our friends. Instead we are buttoning up the bus and getting ready to head north. Our destination is Columbia, although it is not unheard of for that to change even while we are under way.

From this point forward we will be very busy, and it's unlikely I will be able to post much on the blog until things settle down, unless the storm misses us entirely. We will both try to tweet as we are able, and my Twitter feed cross-posts to Facebook, so you can keep up with us on either of those sites.

For anyone who is expecting to hear from us over the next few days, you likely will not, at least until we get some time off.


  1. Stay safe and we will be eagerly awaiting an update on your activities.

  2. If you guys want a front row seat to everything Irene brings, I'll save you a spot in my driveway! Thanks for all you do!! Travel safely.
