Distant Shores - the Ladd's Adventure travel blog

Hi All,

Remember us? Gary & Cindy Ladd. Well we are still on the sailboat! How many of you doubting thomases are still out there? I think most of you know that we changed our web blog over a year ago. We hope that you have checked it out and even follow us once in a while. For those that did not book mark the page here it is again: http://svdistantshores.blogspot.com/

We did not cross the Pacific Ocean for Australia in 2010 for numerous reasons 1) our youngest daughter got remarried in October, 2) we needed to put in a new engine, 3) we needed to get our headsail repaired, 4) we needed to get new cushions for the cockpit, 5) we wanted to boil in the Mexico heat one more time (NOT!!!). This year we are hoping to get our boat re-rigged (new wires and cables that hold up the mast) in time to cross this year.

Our plan is to leave La Paz the middle of March for the 24+ day open ocean passage to Nuka Hiva in the Marquesas Islands. If you want to track our route when crossing and see where we go bookmark this page: http://shiptrak.org/?callsign=ki6qvx&filter=365

We miss you all!

Gary & Cindy
