THE PlanThe Plan was to do all this at our leisure taking time to enjoy the boat and the day on board. All good plans end with a phone call and an idea. Neither of which is bad, but when combined with a plan that might have been good if written down things, can get wild.
The Phone Call:Sure we'll keep the grand kids over the weekend. No problem!
The Idea:Wouldn't it be fun to anchor out with the Gk's? (Remember HideAway is a Compac 23 and they call it "Compac" for a reason)
The Action:A quick run to the grocery store in Pasadena miles from Gulfport. Once there we remembered the meat thawing on the counter at home miles away in Largo. Drive up to Largo, put the meat away, grab some bedding - Naw it's not going to be cold - its only October in south west Fl. (Ha) Wait we need - - -
Two hours later we loaded a pickup full of stuff, some food and the kids toys - Well, you see, they didn't actually know they were going cruising with the old folks.
