John, Not So Popular

We have ben in Kushiro, Hokkaido for nearly 3 weeks. Finished up with small projects, and prepping the boat for our Alaskan passage. There are 9 boats heading to Alaska, 2 have made it to the Aleutians, 1 enroute for 20 days in very rough conditions, and the remaining  of us have been waiting out typhoons and unusual low pressure systems in various ports.

imageJohn going Up the mast made a couple of ravens extremely agitated and vicious as they swooped down attacking his head. Quick job, and down as quickly as possible.

We are watching a string of low pressure systems coming up from the Phillipines making our decision to head out a little difficult. Hopefully we get our weather window soon. Keep watching, we will keep you posted via our Iridium Go satellite phone when we head out.

Send us good wishes for a safe crossing!

    Great picture, Diane. Hitchcock would appreciate it. Let me know if there is an opportunity to join you at any point in your visit to the NW. It would be great to catch up.
