Roam on departure

Rich, Cheryll, Jess, Mike

We are approaching 2 weeks in Marathon. The next few days will be busy, Jenna our daughter will be visiting for a couple of days and the Deems will arrive on Saturday in their boat and will be with us for the rest of our trip. We met the Deems 3 years ago on the Erie Canal and have shared adventures since then. We can't wait to see them. Maybe because they are so much fun to be with or perhaps it is supplies from Trader Joe's that they are delivering to us upon arrival. Today our newest friends Rich and Cheryll form “ROAM” have left to continue the rest of their trip. It was a sad departure, but we anticipate meeting again in our travels. The boating community is a great place and a small world. You meet people from all walks of life with one thing in common, adventure. Every day is a learning experience with everyone willing to share their experiences such as places to dock and anchor, routes to take or how to fix something.  Rich taught me how to whip the ends of your lines to prevent them from fraying.  What a great project in the mid- afternoon while sitting by the boat; two friends whipping line and shooting the breeze. Can it get any better than that? There is always someone willing to help you with your project and take you to the store in their car.  The internet has made it possible to maintain your friendship and share your experiences along the way.
