In less than 9 hours, I will take my last steps on dry land for 20 days. I should be giving you a detailed analysis of the weather forecast and potential wave conditions, but there will be plenty of opportunity for that sometime later. All our gear is on the ship and strapped down in anticipation of the waves we’ll be looking for. Tonight we had a final dinner of Mexican food, as well as our last beers until we return (it’s a dry ship). I’ve taken my first dose of Dramamine. Tomorrow will be an exciting day, the first of many onboard R/V New Horizon. Now for some sleep.
