Ready for the Everglades Challenge

I have spent the weekend changing the oil on my car and doing all the necessary maintenance. The GPS is programmed and it looks like it will be a 14 hour driving time to get to Fort DeSoto. I will leave sometime Thursday, grab a few hour nap on the road and arrive early Friday morning.

You can follow the race on the Watertribe map. Apple and Google Browsers have a problem pulling down the map link if you try to access it from the main Watertribe Home Page. The default view shows only the last waypoint for all the racers. To see the full track select "Show Track and All Waypoints". You have to push "Regenerate View" to re-draw the map. To only see my progress select my Tribe Name "DogsLife".

I am disappointed in the Weather Predictions for the week. It will be warm and the winds will be light and on the nose. No high speed sailing for me. Based on past races, I have brought a lot of gear for cold weather.

Wish me luck. I hope to take some good video...

  1. Dogs--I hope you have time to give us more on your actual EC2011 experience. Post here, or better, both here and on Hobie's AI/TI site.
