With Summer Wine II in a berth in Duluth/Superior the prep work is winding down. Just a few details to work through and a few things to pick up. Menu planning is nearly completed for the first leg. Personal gear packing will be next. The water temperatures are still hovering around 36 degrees F and we will have to contend with the risk of hypothermia daily. It will be very important to stay warm and dry and have enough clothes for the different conditions. Toques, gloves, rubber boots and foul weather gear are essential on a body of water like Lake Superior. Storage space is at a premium on a 28 footer so everyone must pack smart.
Next week promises to be a busy one. With Spencer and Kayla's wedding next Saturday and out of town guests staying with us and lots of activities planned, the week will fly by, yet I'm still counting sleeps.
