The beginnings of adventure 2014

Last year, we embarked on a 2 year sailing adventure from Singapore to Seattle. Our original intent was to sail to Japan, rest over the typhoon and winter season, and get moving again from April. However, we changed our minds after arriving at Japan, and shipped Calliste instead. We flew to Seattle to collect her as she rolled off the ship, settle her down for winter at Bayshore Storage in Port Townsend.

We escaped the winter experience ourselves by being in SG, getting more reno completed and packing up Eleanor with her hitch hiking entourage into a 20ft container. Part 2 of our adventure has become shifting of personal stuff from SG and Monterey to Bayshore Storage.. … and trust me, there is just as much adventure in shifting as there is going to sea.

I think we are neat packers. Bags of 3in1 mixes, Myojo instant noodles, and clothes...

Navigating the red tape and shipping jargon, dealing with pricing and details… just putting a price on it for your reference, its about S$5,000 in all, including the land transport, freight charges, brokerages, customs charges.

We pretty much cleared out lots of stuff from the house… my place seems bigger now, altho still cluttered with remnant materials from the reno.

Next to pack our traveling cases and get ourselves ready to meet Eleanor on the other end.
