Groundhog Day has come and gone, but in our lives we’re still living it every day.

Our lives are still revolving around working on our bottom. Add faring compound, sand smooth, re-prime where we’ve sanded through, to bare metal, and repeat. With all the extra colors being added to our round white bottom, we’re actually starting to look like an Easter Egg!
We were able to take one day off to celebrate a very special occasion for ourselves, our Half-life-iversary! Now that our 17 year dating anniversary has come around it means we’ve spent half our lives together as a couple. Too bad the day didn’t want to agree with us for having a good time.
Lastly, we finish up the hard dodger with the remaining coats of paint and get it up in place. It will be awhile before we start the fabric enclosure though, as until we get the mast up, we’re still not 100% sure the boom will clear the top, lol.
Cheers from the work yard!

Getting the Jeep ready for a trip from Destin down through the Everglades, Keys, etc over the next week or two. Expect me to show up in the yard with some very good beer hand delivered from Creemore, Ontario.
Hello Matt and Jessica! First time since I (blue Jeep Grand Cherokee from Canada, Creemore beer!) visited you that I have had the time and internet service to get you a message. (using McDonald’s wifi near Tampa). Wanted to thank you for taking the time to visit with me when I dropped in without warning. You both were exactly as presented on your blog and youtube videos! You could not have been friendlier or more welcoming. I really appreciate it. And, I always thought that Matt was the quieter, shy type. Couldn’t have been more wrong and he could not have be more talkative and personable! Thanks so much to both of you.
I continued on to the Everglades (eaten alive by mosquitoes) and Keys and am now working my way back through some final visits and back to the Panhandle for a couple months before heading to eastern Canada this summer.
Good luck with getting the boat in the water this summer. Your dedication is inspiring. Look forward to all your future videos and seeing what adventures life has for you.
Thanks again for the hospitality. Hope we cross paths again one day.
