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!

plans update

hi everybody, just wanted to let you know that we are planning on leaving Panama next Wednesday or so....we were going to leave on Monday or Tuesday, but Allen has to go grease some palms at Migracion in Changuinola over issues with his passport, and apparently 75% of days in the month of November are holidays here in Panama. So the dang Migracion office won't be open until Tuesday.....but we can try and get everything else ready before that.

In the meantime, while we're working, we may get to enjoy a parade or two! It's Independence Day in Panama, plus Day of the Dead, Day of the Living, Day of Labor, Day of the Living Dead, Day of ......well you get the picture.

more soon......really.........
