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!

here's something funny, the old circuitboard, made in 2002, said "Work for Peace" but evidently Southwest Windpower is not about that anymore because the new one doesn't say anything about peace. Maybe it's because annoying weenies like us keep calling from developing countries asking why their circuitboards don't work. Posted by Picasa

Ah, all the fixing stuff must be fun and frustrating now that your many guests have returned to work. The wind generator sounds like a computer puzzle - ah they need to get this stuff up and running more like a kitchen toaster and less like the original puzzle from hell. Have you seen What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams - the use of original art work to portray hell certainly does portray life's frustrations well. Am working at the school's computer getting caught up on this first semester's list of stuff to do. Off to work. love you lots. hugs. nancy
