Getting Ready to Leave

We are out for a weekend sail in the Thousand Islands with Jon, Terri, Nicole, Sarah and Freda. We can't believe that we are only 4 weeks away from leaving on our trip to the Caribbean.

We have spent the summer combining sailing trips with boat work.  All of the jobs now allow us to leave the dock at Collins Bay and do work whilst cruising.

Today's major job was installing a Bitstorm Badboy Extreme wireless transceiver and a Badbay Unleashed which creates a wireless hotspot in the boat.

Right now we are anchored behind Beaurivage Island in a beautiful anchorage and I am surfing the internet using an unsecured wireless signal appropriately named "wireless". We can even watch Youtube videos. This is fantastic. Hopefully this allow us to remain connected as we venture south. All that is required are unsecured signals from shore based wireless modems.
