We’re Going to Key West (but not by boat)

  • Blog

We’re Going to Key West (but not by boat) It’s labor day weekend, Saturday, and Sean heard from Swamp about the boat. Apparently, he’s got everything taken care of, installed the electronic ignition, checked out the generator and he feels like Prime Time is in, well, prime time. Unfortunately, with everything else going on, we decided it would be best to get our Key West work trip out of the way before we take off. That way we won’t have a precise time table. Also, unfortunately, this means dad’s schedule no longer coincides with taking us back up to Omaha. He has…

A Sleepless Night

A Sleepless Night Wowzer. What a storm. It started raining about 9 am on Sunday morning it was still pouring when we loaded out Monday.

Making Plans

We’ve had a whole week now to work on our plan. It’s been the most back and forth jumbled up mixed up mess on top of trying to catch up with work, house showings, research and learning how to start and monetize a blog (which for now, I’m putting on the back burner). But here’s what we do know, in a chicken/egg sort of way: Turns out our housing is still available in Key West. For now. We still have airfare booked from Columbia to Key West on September 5. It’s on award tickets so dates can be changed, if needed. We…

Flooding at NP Dodge Marina

  • Blog

The boat was on Craigslist then gone then it reappeared...turns out the marina was closed for several weeks due to flood conditions on the Missouri River. During that time the owner wasn't able to get to or show the boat which ultimately worked out great for us! See more video www.comealongcharters.com
