This week I talk about Janna, Sophie, Daly (dog), and my long and winding offshore trip from Panama City to Salinas, Ecuador. We also talk to the Aubrey and Robb Hamic from the Sailing Miss Lone Star YouTube channel and blog about sailing with two young kids and a big dog. They tell about their big expensive gas guzzling trip from Texas to the Florida keys by way of the Mississippi River and the Slow Boat’s home port of New Orleans to the the Florida Keys. After paying $6,000 in gas, they decided to switch from power to sail and got a deal on a big cruising boat in Maine. We talk about home schooling, sea sickness, and keeping the little crew members occupied underway. They tell us about In the bonus episode exclusively for Patreon supporters of the podcast they tell how their dog climbs ladders and how they are outfitting their boat.
