This is a story of how technology and being prepared helped us survive a very serious situation. It also reinforces how important preparedness is everywhere – at home, on vacations, in the wilderness, and on the water.
The fifth day of our South Puget Sound trip saw us leaving Olympia and heading to one of my favorite places – Jarrell Cove. It is a fantastic state park and cove with a ton of mooring options, and a nearby marina.
Our South Sound sailing trip was just getting started, with stops in Tacoma and at Eagle Island. Tacoma and the Gig Harbor area is where I grew up, so it felt very familiar. Eagle Island is a place I will always visit whenever in the South Sound.
Today we begin a week long trip from Seattle headed into South Puget Sound. The trip will have us visiting Tacoma, Oro Bay, Eagle Island, Olympia, Joemma Beach, and Hope Island, plus a bunch of other stops along the way.
Evening trips around Elliott Bay are some of our favorite memories. They usually involve friends who don’t normally sail, and show off the beautiful Seattle skyline along with some good food and drinks.
I have been flying quadcopters (drones) for years, and always love having the chance to fly in more remote areas, and during winter when the colors are different. Our family cabin always is a favorite place to fly.
