We’ve spent the last 18 months planning for this trip and now there is less than a week to go. We’ve spent the last couple of days running errands – organizer bins, socks for FS, getting my prescriptions in order, picking up vet supplies, and non perishable grocery items. It’s a good thing we both have project management experience, otherwise we might be panicking.
I hit a good sale day at the grocery to stock up on canned goods, dry mixes, and toilet paper. 95% of what I bought was on sale, so I am happy about that. I am waiting to buy meat for a couple of days and will stock up our freezer. I’m planning on freezing it at home and transferring the already frozen meat to the boat freezer so it doesn’t take too long to freeze. We have a good selection to choose from when we are cooking in, which should be most nights. Since we will always be close to shore, we will pick up perishables along the way and hope to be able to find local veggies & seafood relatively easily.
Today we’ll be running down to the boat to bring more of the stuff we’ve accumulated for the trip – and clear out the guest room for Dave who will be house sitting for us while we’re gone. Foster will be meeting the Coast Guard Auxiliary for a safety inspection and I will be organizing my kitchen and other areas.
If we’re lucky we’ll have time for a nap!
