SV Will Sea Delivery to Charleston

This adventure took place on 'Wednesday January 10th, 2024'

The sailing vessel Will Sea needs to be moved from Bucksport, SC along the Atlantic Intra-Coastal Waterway (ICW) to Charleston, SC where she will get some needed improvements before being sailed up to Annapolis in the spring. The challenge will be avoiding all the very shallows parts of the ICW. There's one swing bridge we will need to time correctly. Being very conservative we've decided to break this short trip into three sections. Day 1 we'll head from Bucksport, SC to Georgetown, SC where we'll grab a transient slip. The next day we'll do the longest leg from Georgetown, SC to Isle of Palms, SC. Then there's just a short stretch the next day to get to Charleston which should allow us to pass through the shallowest section at high tide with plenty of the depth to spare. The boat needs some prep work before Wayne and I attempt the voyage so I'm heading down a few days early to get things ship shape. I'll end up staying in Charleston for several days while I arrange to get estimates for all the various improvements I want to make to the boat. Between this nasty flu I've had and the distance, scheduling all of this has proven challenging. I'm interested to see what surprises wait for us.

Sun Odyssey 44 Survey South Carolina Car Trip

This adventure took place on 'Monday December 4th, 2023'

I am going to evaluate the first candidate sailboat in detail on Tuesday. I've scheduled an out of the water survey. Clearly buying a boat is a fools errand, but I am drawn to this task for reasons I do not fully understand. While I suspect to find show stoppers, I have to keep an open mind and not dismiss the opportunity out of hand.

Hot Weather DR Adhoc ride

This adventure took place on 'Sunday September 3rd, 2023'

Duncan hasn't run his DR650 in far too long so the plan is to brave the heat for a short-ish DR ride. I'm not sure where to head. Maybe Southern Maryland. I'm not sure if we'll find any dirt, but heading to the water might be nice.

First Proper Test Ride of the Oil Burner

Scheduled to Start on: 'Sunday July 30th, 2023 13:30'
This is an invitation only adventure.

On July 29th, 2023, I bolted on the final pieces so now the Oil Burner is whole once again. The plan is simply to stay relatively local and put the bike through it's paces. It worked well on the four mile test loop but we did sync the throttle bodies and adjust the CO, so I don't know if we made some mistake there. So the idea is to be conservative and see how it does. If it does well maybe we'll head further afield.

Two Days with Bruce

This adventure took place on 'Tuesday May 30th, 2023'

Bruce and I are planning to head out for an overnight ride. Where we go will largely depend on the weather since there are multiple systems moving through the area. Over the last two days on the DR650 my shoulders and neck are in pretty bad shape so we'll see how much I can do. It's highway miles that seem to hurt the most on the dual-sport.

Test Trip

Scheduled to Start on: 'Friday March 24th, 2023 20:26'
This is an open adventure.

This is a quick local test to verify that there are no show stopper issues with the latest build. Once again I've made many changes and did not get nearly as much done as I had hoped.
