Hi Bill

Long time no see - how is everything? I see you still have your Mainship!

Jane and I hope to move aboard and take off in a year or two, we'll have to get together when we head south.

Glad to hear all is well! We will make sure we touch base with you before we start our voyage south, will probably be a year or two away.
