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 how "thrifty" (read: cheap and with some screws loose) we've become on this trip - I drained a can of cranberries to make muffins the other morning, and couldn't bring myself to throw away all that perfectly good cranberry juice syrup, so I saved it and made two fake Cosmos later that day with vodka and a lime. and you know what? they were pretty damn good too....
