Even The Best Laid Plans...Part 2

Well, it's July 27th & we're still in Phoenix. We had a huge turn of events last week when Scott saw that the price of our dreamboat, one that we have looked at for a year, had decreased significantly. A big enough price change that we could consider buying it.  So, last Wednesday Scott flew to New London, Connecticut to check it out. He spent 6 days there & went through the boat over & over. We talked & talked about it & decided to buy it. Of course, we had to get a marine inspection and have an expert evaluate it which obviously went very well & now she's ours!! Scott got home late last night & now the push to get back to Connecticut is full force. We are going to try & be on the road in the next few days. We have alot to do so we'll see... for instance, everything we have already packed neatly in rubbermaid containers has to be repacked into boxes so we can ship it all to Connecticut. No sense hauling a trailer & all our stuff since we wont be road-tripping from Texas to Florida. And yes, that means we have to sell the trailer we recently purchased for the move.
Our new home is a  38ft Island Packet. I know that doesn't mean anything to most of didnt to me either a year ago, so hope to have pictures up soon. It's so awesome! I cant wait sail on her!!! Now our journey will include sailing down the East Coast which Scott & I are excited about because neither one of us has spent too much time in that part of the country. We'll be New England in the fall!!! We do have to be well on our way by end of September befor old man winter hits the north east.
Stay tuned ......
Anybody need a trailer?
