Just a quick update…. We finally decided that we will be making the crossing just the 2 of us. Many of you knew we were looking for potential crew and we interviewed 4 people. Unfortunately none were the fit we were looking for to share our space and adventure. Additionally, we had tried to convince a fellow cruiser we met in La Paz last year to join us as well and we almost had him but he can’t make it either.
Don’t fret, Trevor and I have been over multiple scenarios and asked ourselves over and over again if we are comfortable with making the passage by ourselves…and we are. Many people do a solo or couple crossing and we have prepared “Flo” and ourselves for this. Yes we will be tired and yes it will be challenging but I think this is what we signed up for and is part what we are looking forward to…if it was easy, everyone would be doing it ; )
We are still working out the kinks of how to communicate with us while we are out of range of cell service and internet but I will have a post later of how to get in touch and how we will post our position (Lat/long) so you can track us….if you want to.
