We have had some jollies along the way. The big event so far was being a part of the worldwide broadcast of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special on November, 23rd. I've spoken about us being fans of this British science fiction TV show before. This special event was very much a special event. We had sons Bryan and Kevin over for the broadcast and Lisa and I got into a little cosplay for it.

The other event that has occupied my time is that I have written a book about our Great Loop adventure. It's not a travelogue but a memoir. I first tried re-purposing this blog but I didn't like that way that was shaping up. So instead, it contains about 85% original material about some of the more notable aspects of the trip. I think it's different than the other books out there about the subject. I'm pretty pleased with it. Some of the chapters are about how we bought Why Knot, our experiences at the AGLCA rendesvous, wildlife and a few chapters about specific places on the route. It even contains a chapter about how I would market a marina, drawing on my experience in the area. I'm in the final stages of editing at this time, concentrating on punctuation, continuity and the like. It will be an ebook on Amazon. I think you all will need to buy at least seven copies of it.
We've been keeping in touch with our friends out on the loop and cruising up and down the coast. It sounds like that conditions haven't been too good. It's been rainy and windy. That's too bad. But, again all things considered, we'd rather be on Why Knot somewhere in Florida than in St. Louis. The forecast for Thursday in the gateway city is for snow. Yikes.
