Getting ready for The Ocean

it's amazing how much there is to do to get ready for a trip this big! I keep driving around thinking how much I'll miss my routines but then I remind myself we're coming back! It's weird, I'm starting to appreciate things before I am even living without them. Like long hot showers at the gym, the gym, running to the grocery store to pick up fresh vegetables, fast internet.
I ordered the sat phone a couple of days ago! we will have e mail but it will be short and sweet!
I discovered GRIB files and boy are they fun! It's free weather data, and the one I am using is on Really cool stuff to show you wind speed and direction where ever and whenever you ask it. It shows you the conditions now, and then 3 hours from now and more. I checked out Cape Horn this morning. It was only blowing 12 knots! But it was blowing 59 closer to Antartica.
The grib files are so cool looking , I may have to incorporate some of them into some art someday.
