  • Projects and Purchases Right Before We Left-

    Today I’ll discuss some of the generalities of how much money and effort it took to finally untie the docklines and roll out of San Diego, down the coast of Baja and into our first three months of cruising.  I closely watched our finances before we left…cause we were pretty low on More

  • Sailing Down Baja: A Thousand Miles Of Savings?

    Today I’ll discuss some of the generalities of how much money and effort it took to finally untie the docklines and roll out of San Diego, down the coast of Baja and into our first three months of cruising.  I closely watched our finances before we left…cause we were pretty low on More

  • LF2SF Makes Top 25 List From “The Adventure Junkies”

    LF2SF has been named one of the Top 25 Sailing Blogs of 2019 by the adventure and travel Site…The Adventure Junkies.  The site does have impressive hiking, travel and adventure content as well as great high resolution color photos I love.  What an honor to be on the same list More

  • Sailing To Another Coastline

    It’s nearly the New Year and we’ve gotten Thanksgiving and Christmas out of the way.  We spent several weeks at a slip in La Paz effecting repairs and changing out our batteries…so by the time you read this we hope to be about halfway through our Southern Crossing from Baja More

  • Tulum’s Out! Baja HaHa Today

    I’ve spent nearly four years writing and commenting on this blog so we could work toward today.  Interesting that some folks are still surprised that we’re actually leaving?

      Today as I’m writing this post, we STILL don’t have an engine in the boat (its been four {4} weeks since it was taken out) and our sails were shipped yesterday…so we’re still hoping to leave on 04 Nov.  With this in mind, we’ve started our initial provisioning of More

  • Baja Ha-Ha 2018 Through My Camera Lense (Casting Off The Docklines)

    Gotta be honest….after meeting with our mechanics and hearing that they probably won’t make the 4-week deadline (we had originally been quoted) for fixing our sailboat engine, my motivation was lower than usual.  In reality, if the engine isn’t fixed by November 4th we’re still going down Baja whenever it More
