Cost to Cruise --Sept. 2015

The past 3 months haven't been true, "Cost to Cruise" as we haven't been cruising. We've still tried to maintain our budget which has proven to be difficult, especially since we bought a stupid mini van. When looking for a way to get us, our belongings and a 16-year-old cat to San Miguel De Allende all the way from Guaymas it seemed that our best option was to buy a car. We scoffed at the idea of spending $700 to rent a car, each way. That would have been way too expensive, or so we thought. 

Hindsight is always 20/20.  We had no idea that we would haul out for the summer and seek refuge from the heat. We had honestly thought we were going to just float in the Sea of Cortez all summer. Had we known we were going to haul out, we would have just left our Nissan Pathfinder (which we sold 2 days before setting sail) in Guaymas waiting for us. Oh well. It's just money....down the drain.

Needless to say, we can't wait to actual cruise. We sail off back into the Sea of Cortez Friday. 


  1. It's been a pleasure to finally meet you all.
    Fair winds where ever you end up.
