Great Websites / Blogs / Logs

As I slave away saving and dreaming, one of my favorite ways to waste time and depress myself is to read the online logs and websites of cruisers out there living it.

The problem is I have exhausted the few I know about and though I have searched and found others digging real gems out of the moutain can be tough.

So, how about lets get a thread together for folks out there cruising to post links to their website and to post links to their favorite cruisers websites.

I am particularly interested in families cruising with kids on extended voyages. I have read the Martin family website and the Hacking families great site, what others am I missing????

Thanks for posting links!


Terry

Now there it is in real print(sort of)Who hasn't heard.SV Billabong have with all intent visited Australia.If only the Bums did that with every place THEY visited,maybe they would have had content.The 2nd explanation of "Billabong"Was indeed correct.I put these folks on fav's cause they are "real" cool.Love the site,love the presentation and deffinately hope they lapp up everything that any country offers them.Mudnut.

I've also enjoyed looking at Geoff Schultz's (on this board) logs

Geoff Schultz's BlueJacket Sailing Site

In particular, I like the Google Earth view.

If you go to any page on our blog - drop to the bottom - and you'll see the link you can use to jump through to other cruising blogs.
Cheers

We're on Bravenet as well

Our site is with Bravenet as well, but I wasn't aware that it was just for sailors. Anyway it is a great web hosting outfit and has many things to offer for very little in the way of dollars. Unfortunatly we have been spending Cordobas here in Nicaragua while helping a friend deliver his boat to Costa Rica.
Our website has a journal section that is pretty up to date on this trip. If you go back in the journal section there is our list of still to get items even though this trip has put some of those by the way side. Who needs a hot water heater when the ambient temp in the winter is 89degrees. There is a picture section, current equipment list, boat specs, past trip page(that is not very up to date sorry), and an advertisers page that includes some of the people that we have run into on this trip.

Our blog

Hey,
We have a blog you might be interested in. We're three recently graduated college students who made a good deal of money playing poker and decided to buy a boat and sail around for an undetermined amount of time. We spent almost no time preparing and we had experience levels ranging from zero to extremely little. Somehow, we're alive and well in the Caribbean. Hopefully, you can laugh with and at us. Check it out.
Brad, Dan and Scott's Sailing Adventure
Thanks,
Dan
