Not even close to packing. I just ordered a travel backpack a couple days ago. I have until May 2nd to pack, thats when I head to Anchorage. A weekend of goofing off and doing nothing. Staying at my sister's place, no hotels to worry about or up in Wasilla at a buddies house.

It reached 32 above here in Kuparuk today. We have lost so much snow it's not even funny. Bare ground showing through everywhere.
I'm all screwed up in the head. I have found a wonderful 28 foot boat on Craigslist. It's a hefty chunk of change...but exactly what I want in a boat. The owner will do a payment plan...but I could put that money to better use. Maybe I should wait. But it sure would be nice to cruise prince william sound this summer. I hate this feeling.

Flip a coin, Rance. Heads-boat, tails-no boat.

Well...on the positive side Sweden is all for it. But it would be nice to pay for the roof on the cabin this summer...and take a week vacation in MN, and cruise the state, and more importantly...perhaps buy her a wedding dress and all the trimmings. Sigh...I'm sure there will be a dozen of them this fall. But it is a nice boat.

The open boat with the Yamaha in Homer? That is a sweet boat.

No it's a 28 foot Bayliner with flying bridge, frig, cockpit heat, 6 gallon water heater, trailer. I'm going to go look at it next week. If they let me make payments up through August I'll take it. If they won't...then so be it.

Dude, we're like in the same place right now! I found this boat that I am absolutely in love with, a live aboard, 38 foot classic wooden boat. Oh, she's a beaut. The amazing thing about it is moorage fees for a live aboard are like $300 dollars a month including all utilities. Even with loan payments on the boat itself that's nowhere near the $700 monthly PLUS utilities I would be paying for a tiny studio apartment.
Tell me this isn't like the best idea ever:

Do it! Sounds like a great idea.

Well, I need to actually see the boat in person first before I make any hard and fast decisions. But I've been in contact with the owner and she seems very nice, shown me some pictures. I'm hoping I can see it tomorrow, since it's here in Juneau. The only problem is it doesn't run (which is why it's so cheap!) so I need to get it towed from the harbor it's in right now, on Douglas to the one I want it to be in- Aurora downtown. Then, after it's all paid off I can buy an engine for it.

Well, back to my paper. T-minus seven pages and counting!

That looks like a sweet boat. I work with a guy here that lives with his wife on a boat in Sitka. They love it. They spend the summer in some beautiful spots.
