Many as yet unforeseen problems and questions yet remain to be answered. How long will a thirty year old engine power all this stuff? Will my underwear ever show up? What did we do with the bicycle pump? Did we pack the spare spark plugs? And can we pick up our email with a south wind on our mooring? (So far the answer appears to be no-but with easterlies and northerlies it works fine).
Tomorrow's forecast sounds favorable so we shall hopefully begin to travel then. With luck we should be in the canal system by noon and across Oneida Lake ( a 30 mile stretch of open water) over the weekend. Drop in next week to see if anything new is posted.
