It just occurred to me this morning, as I realized I'll be out of town a few days next week, how much I have to do to get ready for the walkabout. I have just now started hauling gear, food bins and notebooks out of the equipment closet. It is in a pile in the living room.
The purple tub is where I put my food supplies as I buy the various items late winter and early spring. I'm not even sure what is in there, but I suspect I'll find a decent supply of the basic foods. The green tub is for the cruising gear. I'll need to get out my Everglades Challenge required equipment list and sort through all that.
I bought a new set of led tail lights at walmart this morning. The old lights are down to just one or two bulbs still glowing. I paid $50, and added a few dollars on top of that for the 1 year replacement warranty as tail lights never seem to last.
I need to renew my fishing license, check out the stove, sort the food and start packing the boat. And I ought to review my waypoints - I'm not sure I marked some of the smaller islands - Adams Island, Spring Island and Holland Island - that I hope to explore.
It will be a busy weekend, but kind of fun.
