Our First Goin' East Planning Meeting

The Waghornes, Rogers, Grooms/Norwood, Heards, Gerdes', Nelson and Wallachs gathered at Portofino Harbour Marina and Yacht Club for our first Goin' East trip planning meeting.  We discussed several stopping locations and added new destinations such as Port of Delcambre, Lake Arthur and others.
 
 
Our next meeting will be with just the Tenn-Tom cruisers to discuss stopping ports and distances.

Getting ready to head east again!


It’s been awhile since our last post!  During this “non-blog” posting period, we have done some short trips around the Galveston area and a few week + longer trips to Port Aransas for Harvest Moon in 2013.  During this trip we stopped at Red Fish Bay Boathouse in Aransas Pass. We’ll add this marina to our list of overnight stops.  This year we went to Lake Charles for Contraband Days, then on to Port Arthur for TMCA Spring Fling, and on to Galveston for almost a week before heading home to Kemah.  Thank God Teak did not forget about the anchor-out potty routine!  She is an official boat dog!!!
Now it’s time to start getting the boat ready for another big trip heading east.  Our check list has been made and we’re working it down!  The plan is to go up the Tenn-Tom and then, if time allows, back into Florida as far as Pensacola. 
Last Trade was just pulled for a bottom job (needed every 3 to 4 years) and the PSS Shaft Seal replaced (needs to be replaced every 7 to 9 years).  Josh purchased a Satellite TV receiver so he can have good TV on this upcoming trip.  It seems that just as fast as we work items off the list we add new items to the list (install the Satellite TV receiver).
