The Waghornes, Rogers, Grooms/Norwood and Wallachs met at PHYC clubhouse once again to review our cruising plan from Clear Lake to the Mississippi / Alabama area. We discussed our options for the Lafitte, LA area (anchorages, Marinas, and other possible stopping spots), spare parts and anchoring techniques. An announcement was made by the Grooms/Norwood that they are now thinking about just going into Alabama (LuLu’s and The Wharf Marina) and hanging around that area instead of going up the Tenn-Tom with us as planned. The Rogers are still going to continue as planned to head into Florida for the winter before heading to the Chesapeake.
We are all aware that weather will play a big part in this plan but our targeted departure date is still September 9th. Those of us who still plan to do the Tenn-Tom will have plenty of time to discuss that part of the trip once we get to Turner Marine in Mobile, Alabama.
It’s countdown time!
