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?
, wisdom, experiences, etc. to share are welcome! This is exciting to actually have a short term life goal
