Well we are both new to most forms of technological communication... strange for our age I know, so you will have to forgive our lack of forum savvy. Jen and I spend most our year living and working remote
on Afognak Island. So for a period of 4-6 months a year we are cut off from all forms of civilization besides cruisers, float plane pilots and of course SSB
"hams". We work for the Alaska Department of Fish
doing salmon surveys (really just counting fish) but much of our time is dedicated to filling the holds in Storm with wild caught, gathered or hunted food
. The winter months is the time we do much of our sailing. The weather
in Seward can be quite nasty but we are able to avoid the summer crowds and get all of the Kenai Fjords to ourselves.
This summer we decided we would like a slightly larger living space and something we would feel a bit more comfortable out in the frequent gales of southcentral Alaska in the winter. So after exploring tons of options we found Lovely Rita, a Westsail32 with everything we need to live off the grid in Alaska, atleast we hope so. We fly down to Puerto Vallarta
in 2 weeks for the survey
and sea trial and if all goes well our adventures will continue, but just in a much warmer climate. Everyone has told us we must start a blog so that is in the works as well and when it comes time we will share the link.
