Planning the next great adventure

Yes, it has been too long since my last post, but I have not been doing much other than working. That is all about to change though. I am on my first vacation since last…? Well I am off this week and I have a lot of things to do. I want to finish the second prototype of the Expedition Windsurfer. Get some things done around the house and do some camping this weekend. The weather report for Sunday morning has the temps in the low 60s possible upper 50s. Perfect weather for a camping trip!!! This has been a really hot summer for me and I need a break. I hope the weather will cool down as it should be for this time of year. Here in Florida they have changed the name of this month from October to Hotober.
I have been doing some preliminary planning for the new Expedition Windsurfer. My ultimate goal for this season is to enter and finish the Everglades Challenge (EC) in March. The EC is a small boat adventure race from Tampa Florida to Key Largo, some 350 miles. With that goal in mind I will spend a week in the 10,000 Islands and the Everglades. I might do a short trip to Anclote Key and visit the sponge docks in Tarpon Springs Florida. I also want to do the entire length of the Peace River, from Bartow to Boca Grande Pass. I can think of a number of other adventures to attempt but time and money might limit what I can actually do. Not to mention my family obligations. But it is fun to plan for the next adventure.

Wow, I'd love to do something like that. I just got a waterproof bag for short trips on my Kona, but your trip beats all.

Love what you are up to! I've been eying the new breed of SUP/light air windsurfers, sit on top kayaks. I've thought of building a CLC SUP or springing for a BIC or similar, but love the versatile nature of what you've put together. Are you looking to put together a plan set with Matt?

Sounds ambitious, I look forward to you blog posts on this trip.
