welcome to our blog!

This blog tells the story of our 22-month sailing journey from Oakland, California, to Bristol, Rhode Island, aboard our beloved Bristol 32 sailboat, Ute. Please feel free to browse through the archives (partway down the sidebar to your left) to see pics and read stories of our adventures in North America and Central America . (Sorry the first 3 months of the trip are missing - they vanished somewhere in an internet cafe in Mexico - but all you're missing is CA, Baja and Western Mex).

If you're trying to track us down now that we're landlubbers, try us at uteatlarge at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

this one is for you Mike

Would you please quite ragging on Mike. He's really a good guy and spent only a little of your money coming to Scottsdale to make up for Allen's vacation.
One of my car-friends called today and said he watched the show on SPEED and was glad to see I "had my jumping shoes on." I think I may have overworked my Achilles tendons about $2 million.
And, just for you, Allen, I'm hearing the Beatles tonight, "When I get older, loose my head, many years from now ... Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm Sixty-Four?"

"Many years from now," got that?

The Beatles, however, came after my custom-made Willie cross-country CD.

Hi to you both. The pics are great - yes it is cold and mostly ice here. Looks like a nice storm this week. Free ski pass is waiting patiently for good snow. You are both fun and am pleased Paul and Marti could visit. nancy
