Boxes of gear, plastic gallon jars of food and the dry bag of freeze dried meals migrated downstairs to the living room and now reside beneath the desk. I think I'm set on food, probably have to much in fact. The cook kit and light/notebook kits were pleasingly intact and ready to go from the spring sail.
I've updated my SPOT profile to reflect that I'll be sailing on Chesapeake Bay and not the sounds of North Carolina, and also edited the list of email addresses that receive "ok" notifications when I drop anchor at the end of a day and then again in the morning when I raise the anchor. I'll post the tracking link next week.
My renewed my Virginia saltwater fishing license will, because of a reciprocal agreement, work in Maryland waters of Chesapeake Bay.
A car service out of Easton, Md. has agreed to drive me at a reasonable rate from either Oxford or St. Michaels to Chincoteauge should I make the sail around the bottom of the Delmarva.
The trip is still more than a week away, but it feels good to be getting things in order.
