Looking forward to the trip!

PS. Trop Storm Andrea is coming up the coast Friday/Saturday. I'm sure you know this already! Be careful out there!

At this point it's pushing weather to the east with no real circulation.

Doesn't mean its friendly.

Right right. Not a strong storm, but a storm none-the-less. Should be past here by Mid-Saturday.

Why not head to Block Island and take a short break?

Better to run strong and then duck into the next inlet before it starts blowing.

If you want to buy the fuel...

The bay seems to be upset that I'm leaving.

I'll wave from the skies tonight as I fly from Boston to RDU. Safe travels. Hole up good from Andrea. How far today planned? Annapolis?

You can't really see it in pictures but it's on the beam 3-4'. I had some things move that never moved before. Just another typical Potomac crossing. As to plans other then fuel in Solomons don't really have any. It might end up being a really late arrival in Annapolis tonight. Looks like it's going to be nasty tomorrow. I'd like to make Chesapeake City tomorrow before all hell breaks loose.

I don't think you're gonna get much steady wind from Andrea, but man you better watch out for the spin off cells. Lots of tornadic activity on the east and south east side of the storm.....unstable. You might want to wait a day to cross the Delaware. Of course, I'm talking to the guy who spit in the face of a hurricane while anchored in NYC.

Can you let us know where in Solomon's you got fuel and price per gallon? I'm curious, as we may be spending some time down that way.

HH,
That's probably darn good advise. I'd rather spit at a hurricane then piss on the Delaware
