Here I am back in Oakland after one of the craziest weeks of my life.
Despite overpopulation in parts, California is truly a beautiful place. Over the last week we have went from North-South and then East into Nevada travelling over 1000 miles through tropical coastlines, fomritable mountian ranges, and desert. What a trip it is to be on the pacific coast making stops in Sanfranscico, Hollywood, and then over to Sin City where anything goes...
Rodney joined us on Friday night in Las Vegas where we had a 1500 sq. ft suite at the Luxor. That was hard to swallow.
Right now we are kicking back and laughing about all that craziness that has transpired over the last 8 days.
We have hired a captian who is going to help us charter to boat back to Vancouver, now it is a waiting game until the repairs are done on the boat. In the meantime there is a signifigant amount of planning and work that has to be done to the boat...mostly preparing meals for 6 men on a 12 day adventure. We have been warned that this trip can get quite hairy but that is something that we have already accepted. The weather out here is fantastic, we still havn't had any rain. As of right now our plans after the boat is successfully powered to Vancouver are still up in the air.
I miss you all, wish us luck!
