10-14-2012: Short update here: I have been so busy the past few months that I haven't gotten around to posting any pictures of our trip. The reason for being so busy? I have been in a US Coast Guard class so I can get my Captain's License. It's been a tough 2 months, but I just passed my last test yesterday. 8 weeks of classes (5:30-9:30 3 nights per week), 4 tests, and a LOT of study time. But I'm not done yet. As soon as I take CPR, First Aid, get a physical, take a drug test, 3 letters of recommendations, and get a TWIC card (Transportation Workers ID card) you can call me Captain Steve (50-ton Masters License). After two months of grueling work, I think I can have my life back! It might take me another 2 months to finish the rest of the requirements, but the hard part is done; passing the tests.
So, in the next week or so I will be posting pictures from our tip.... I promise.
