The weather here is far better that what we left behind in the Northeast - low 80's, blue skies, a bit humid, but not too bad. Long Island is bracing for a major storm, and I'm well out of its way.
The underway just concluded wasn't a terrible one; we drilled some, chilled out some, and more stuff broke. Among the things that broke was yet more of our gear; in fact, this led to a short turn-around (read: three-hour) stop here in Mayport two weeks ago. Once we leave here next week, we'll do about a week and a half more at sea before pulling into Port Everglades, FL, just outside of Fort Lauderdale. The giant upshot of this? We arrive on 30 April, the day before my birthday. It'll likely be game-on, pedal to the floor, checked of course by the standard operating limit of not vomiting.
