It is just wrong! Bushranger has been shivering in Demopolis Alabama for the past three days, waiting for the weather gods to smile on her (thank goodness we are billeted in a covered slip, or it would have been dreadful!). It has gotten into the thirties (that’s close to ‘0’ for you folks that use centigrade) the past couple of nights, and they’re talking about it dipping into the 20s tonight!

Of course, we’re very fortunate to be at such a gorgeous marina…I think the facilities here at Demopolis are the nicest I’ve seen at any marina! Lots of washers and dryers (all brand new), three clean, large showers in the Lady’s Room (I can’t speak for the Men’s Room, but Boyd hasn’t had any complaints), a big, bright community room with rocking chairs, TV, a book-trade shelf, and two courtesy vehicles…it’s REALLY nice!

Right, but back to our plan….

We’re going to give it a shot tomorrow. Come sunup you should see Bushranger off like a shot (well, maybe more like a brisk walk), wandering down the waterway, in search of warmer weather. Call us crazy, but we REALLY want to get down to Mobile before the Thanksgiving holiday, and tomorrow night is supposed to be a bit warmer than tonight.

Since there are very few marinas in our near future (the joys of anchoring out await us!), don’t be surprised if you don’t hear from us for a week or so…just keep your finger crossed that the weather cooperates (come on, you weather guys…work with us here!)

…of course, you can always keep tabs on us by clicking the Bushranger Map on the blog page (it uses the GPS and that should never be out of range).

      I just looked at Spot — and I think I see the problem. According to the map, you’re not on the water! No wonder you thing you’ve been in the same place for days! ;o)

      Perhaps I should weave a blanket or two for you???

        Lol! That would explain it! …and I won’t say no to a blanket or two. ..
