So...3 months leave of absence was a hard sell, but 30 days off with a years notice isn't something I'm going to turn my nose up at
And since it is vacation
time, I get paid to take it
Ok, so where do I even start!
When to leave? I was thinking April or May or June? It's not overly hot, or cold, and the weather
is pretty fair. That would be a 2019 trip...so I have plenty of time to plan something
Where to go? Initial thought was just an endurance run south just to see how far I could go before I had to head
back home. Next thought was to circumnavigate the Chesapeake Bay
. It's only 200 miles to Elkton from Norfolk roughly, 2-4 days by boat
depending on how fast and how long I run. I figure in a month I could poke my nose into a bunch of cool anchorages
and towns. On the other hand, I just joined a cruising club
and one of the members was telling me about cruising the sounds of North Carolina
What to do? Ideas? Places to visit? Quiet backwaters to drop the hook?
Any advice, wisdom, experiences, etc. to share are welcome! This is exciting to actually have a short term life goal
