Part of about a gazillion engine parts that we checked were the correct ones for our engine, entered into our parts inventory spreadsheet and finally stowed away.
We are now in the phase of preparation for a high latitude voyage that I call “death by a thousand details”. Make that “death by a million details”. I woke up in the middle of last night in a cold sweat with the absolute certainty that we can’t possibly be ready to head north in just two weeks. There is just too much to do and not enough time.
But then I have felt this way before every voyage we have ever made and we have always left on time without neglecting to do anything that resulted in disastrous consequences. Hopefully it will be the same this time.
Just thought that if you feel the same way before a big voyage, you might like to know that you are not alone.
And if you’re one of those totally organized cool calm and collected people that never feel this way…a pox on you!
