One more sleep.
There’s a good chance that I won’t be posting tomorrow simply due to the fact that we’ll be a bit busy so I figure that having a day 0 post is a good idea.
So, we are here on day 0.
Hopefully by this time tomorrow I’ll be at least 100 miles away.
The last two days have been spent running around getting all the last minute things sorted out; buying emergency wine gums, putting my car in storage, getting a hair cut etc etc. I’ll be up tomorrow at 05:30 doing one last recheck of my lists and then it’s off to the boat. Packing a bag for 30 days at sea is interesting. You’re constantly having this realisation that if you forget something, it really is forgotten… there are no shops along the way.
Just a little caveat. There is a chance that something will go wrong with the satellite coms while I’m at sea. If I never post or suddenly stop posting, please don’t worry. Occam’s razor etc.
I’ll leave you with this:
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, the providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!
- Goethe, W.H. Murray (It’s complicated)
