    Ahem. It's "taken" rather than "took".

    Have any pictures of the boat, I am curious to see it.

    Is it a monohull sloop?

    The Chetco is a wonderful river, during peak snowmelt.

    Even better now that some of man's impediments on it have been removed.

    I like the plan, of hugging the coast. Maybe the best way to cope with the fires and excessive heat. I may have to do it this way, myself. I-10 and I-8 to San Diego, then up the coast from there.

    US 395 is great, but try to do the driving during daylight hours and not on Fr. or Sat. Statistics show it is a brutal killer.

    I'm no boat (or grammar) expert... It's a 32' single hull, but has two masts, so I don't think it can be a sloop. A Ketch perhaps? I only have two pictures. First on is the finished boat moored at Marshall in Tomales Bay. The second is earlier photo of it being flipped upright early in the build by my uncles '53 International. Nearly the entire boat was built by him with the exception of the masts, sails and a few specialized rigging items he ordered. He even machined much of his own hardware. His mother has photo documented the 3 year process in several albums, but I don't have access to them here. It has been quite a fascinating process.

    He's been test sailing it up and down Tomales Bay, but planning a maiden sea voyage down to the SF Bay in the upcoming weeks.

    It is a ketch, the second (mizzen) mast is shorter and behind the main mast.

    An interesting project.

    You're a good dad. Now that I'm older I can appreciate all that it took my Dad to pack up the kids (3 brothers), bicycles, all the needed gear and hit the road. Your kids will remember that trip for the rest of their lives.

    Thank you. That's very kind of you to say. None of us are perfect parents, but I will try my best.

    Some things don't change a bunch. Me and brothers camping at Assateague National Seashore 1969.

    I had made many trips between Los Angeles and Mamoth/June Lake in my younger days. It is a wonder how myself or my friends didn't die driving that route. Late at night. And in altered states. "Don't do this at home Kids". Back in my n'ver can die years.
