Wild Eyes is out of the water now. She's in the Windward Boat Yard with tons of people working on absolutely everything!
The deck is being sanded down and prepped for a new coat of non skid. Down below Nacho has his workers cutting out the delaminated fiberglass. Allen Blunt, the rigger, examined the rig and said that it looked to be in very good condition and that there isn't much that needs to be done to it.
Everyone working on Wild Eyes understands that we have a lot to do in order for me to get out this year, and while things are slightly hectic, they are all working hard and are great to have around.
Kristy Morrell has been great. She has been putting together a menu of what I will eat for my trip, I will be eating mostly dehydrated foods sponsored by Mountain House. Kristy has talked with Dawn Riley to get a few ideas of things other than dehydrated foods to eat.
My departure date hasn't been set yet. There is too much that needs to be done and I will be leaving as soon as we are both ready, not a moment sooner or later. I will announce the departure date as soon as I know when it is.
ps. I'll bring a camera with me tomorrow and make sure to get some good pictures of everything!
