"I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by."

-Douglas Adams

Today is October 1st. This was to be the first symbolic day of our storied journey, but alas, it wasn't meant to be. Brian is fighting to free himself from what seems to me to be endless Law and Med School applications while I'm trying to stretch this move out as long as possible in an attempt to avoid being too idle, for too long.

Tomorrow should be the last of the move for me and I fully expect Brian to break free very soon. We plan to converge together here in Toronto early next week and are already taking concrete steps to get us out of Canada and on the road.

I think I may have found a ride to NYC where I've arranged to meet with a 52 year-old surgeon who's apparently has a 40' Beneteau that he'll be sailing from NYC to Bermuda then eventually down to the British Virgin Islands. He needs 3 crew, I'm hoping we fit the bill. These plans of course are subject to change at a moments notice as I haven't actually secured the ride to New York, nor have I been able to get a firm commitment from this skipper leaving New York sometime after the 10th of October.

Whatever happens, I'm eager to go. To start travelling, and spend my money somewhere other than Toronto.
