Getting ready to go back aboard

In just one week we will be jetting back to the Abacos! We have had a great three months ashore but now I am feeling a little desperate about all the last minute items we need to do before leaving. I got my ham license a few weeks ago - KB1-NBD! I thought about getting a 2-meter hand held to talk to the local hams on our way but decided to wait on that. I just bought a high-power WiFi card and a new laptop to help us keep in touch. That, along with a Voice Over IP telephone service, a new four-band GSM cell phone and Skype should do the trick. Heather is busy provisioning food and supplies. It is with equal parts anticipation and dread that I look forward to being back underway.
