A first glimpse of Rockhopper

Progress continues at what feels like a slow pace as we are living it.  I think once we look back at this time it will look like a whirlwind.

We closed the door on the Pod on May 26 and closed on the house that day as well.  Luckily, we could stay in town a few more days to finish up some business and visit with friends.  Thanks to Kelly and Seana for letting us stay in Wash Park, and the Huffmans for the spare room in RiNo.  It was fun to be metropolitan for a few days! 

On our way to North Carolina we swung by Florida for a day to check on the progress of the boat.  Rockhopper is currently at the manufacturer’s facility having work done.  Clearly, she didn’t make it into the water by June 1, but we are hoping we’ll be ready for the big splash in July.  Once she is in the water, we’ll have a couple of weeks of work and preparations until we can get underway and start making our way north.

We’ll be dropping in on the folks in Florida next week to see how things are progressing.  Until then, we are staying with family (thanks Lori and Chuck!), spending a lot of time with Dad, and trying to see our NC friends as much as possible while we are here and homeless.
