If you're new to this blog it might make more sense to click on "2009" under the Blog Archive, and start reading from the bottom.
"Nearly ready" is a euphemism, but we like to say that anyway. (Karen here.) There is a sense of final preparation in the air, as the major projects are behind us and it's now mostly small boat jobs and the schlepping of belongings from the house, which is rented to a friend for the summer. Oh, and painting, and... wait, don't get me started! There probably isn't a real finish line to preparing for something like this. More likely it'll be a sense of good enough, let's go. I think that sense may become apparent when we segue from thinking about the tasks at hand to the voyage itself being uppermost in our minds. I hope that's soon. When that happens, we'll probably just send you a quick email and go. The view right now is still from the porthole, not the cockpit. But the excitement is building, which means it won't be long now.
