Two weeks in Maine so far. We've been working our butts off, but also doing a little dance everyday to celebrate being out of the city. The cabin is looking swell, and we've started to seriously ask around the boat yards for anyone who needs crew. If anyone out there knows of a boat going south or beyond who needs two fabulous people to crew, send them my way. We've looked into some schooners but they're either full up or leaving too soon. We're looking for something more long term anyways, not just a delivery...

This is the kitchen with Jesus and Mary paint-by-number watchin' our backs.

This is the loft with a Cadillac seat as a very classy head board.

We just built the ladder, it needs a paint job.

I refinished two stoves and tiled this fabulous stove pad. The tiles were all salvaged. I'm a pro now so if you need something tiled, I'm up for hire.

A view of our striped floor pattern. We had left over flooring from jobs past so the floor is pieced together with beautiful old fur, newer maple and never before installed bamboo.
I could go on and on but this is all I have in me tonight. I hope the world is well in whatever corner you're reading this from.

Hi Ash, Great to see you're out of the city. I hope you found your truck okay. I've been meaning to write since we got back but things have been jam packed. Tim and I have a country abode too. Will send you some pics. Antarctica no go?
Sam (and Tim in absentia)
