These posts are a bit behind as I am just now getting internet access. I hope to catch up soon.
As of right now the GPS has registered 158 hours of sailing time in two and a half weeks, so I am a bit exhausted to say the least. That, of course, does not include the countless hours on mechanical issues, searching out fuel in unknown towns, finding places to tie up overnight, wait for locks to open etc. I will write a summery of the whole trip so far as soon as I can. I think I need a bit more time so I can regain my sense of humor about the whole thing :) For now, a shot as I headed out of the Netherlands and on into Belgium.
