Turtle bay

Quick update

Easy to grin made it to turtle bay last night right around none pm. We had a great voyage even though we had many crew members jump ship the morning we left. Yesterday consisted of naked sun bathing, whales, good food, great company,and dolphins swimming next to the boat at night. It was one of the most magical scenes, the dolphins were disturbing the plankton as they surfed the wake of the bow. I wish you all could have seen it. Catch you on the flip side

Life is good, it sounds so corney to say but it is true. So many people I know fully admit how much they hate their lives, or maybe just the direction. It saddens me to hear it, especially since i feel the complete opposite. My life is great, I am typing this blog from the cabin of "Easy to Grin", my vessel to baja Mexico. I got to san diego three days ago after a unusual rideshare from Arcata. I want to give a shout out to my two chickens Liz and Zoe, thank you for everything. Don't forget: "Get money, Get paid".

San Diego has been wonderful especially the skipper Dave. The crew is a faroginous group, but it seems like it will turn out well. Plans are possibly changing especially since several crew members are continuing to central and south America. We have a few surfboards on board, so here we come Costa Rica! I am sorry my md friends looks like I might not see you until next year :)

Walking South

Time is flying these days, like the pelicans we watched at the Oregon coast yesterday. It was good to see the Pacific, as the last time I saw it was in San Diego... nearly six months ago. Anyhow, Double Check and I had an amazing time in Vancouver, B.C, but like all trips, it was just not enough time. Double Checks brother gave me a ride over the border to Bellingham, which again was an action filled adventure.

 I spent the day in Bellingham and caught the bus to Seattle. I met little Clive Dasek, aka baby long legs. Nick you have a beautiful wife and son, thank you so much for sharing your life for a few days.

I jumped on a city bus for eight hours (three hours by car) to Portland a few days ago. I have been hanging out with Toothpick, Spoon Man, and Princesss. We took a trip to the coast yesterday, hoping to camp out on the beach, but the rain made us run back to the city. We did get to go bouldering at the gym, which is always amazing and frustrating at the same time. Someday I will be in an area long enough to see real progress....someday.

So the big news is I am going to Mexico! Yes Mexico, another stamp for the passport. Deeg you are losing, and losing bad. Anyhow, I am sailing out of San Diego Harbor on Oct 25, heading for Cabo San Lucas. I found a vessel, a 31' trimaran, which is super exciting.  LETS GO BAJA HA HA!!!

Anyhow, itinerary is to hit up Eugene tomorrow, then south to see Liz and Zoe in Arcata. If anyone in San Fransisco wants to put me up, I would love to see the city.

Two trails/Two years

I am done! I just walked from Mexico to Canada... Oct 6th at 6:15pm. We had a week of fanastic weather, not a single cloud in the sky. This was a welcomed change from the near three weeks of cold rain that tested me every mile.

So... Double Check and I are exploring Vancouver for the next few days. Pictures and stories to come.
