Thursday evening here on the old Sandpiper. Just finished watching the movie 'Butterfly Effect' and eating pizza for dinner. The boys are in the cockpit taking watch while I sum up today's events. However, the daily events haven't changed much. We currently have 320 miles to Australia. About an hour ago I check us in to our 7:15 net and was actually jumping up and down because I'm so excited we have made it this far and soon we will be in Australia, who would have thought. We were suppose to be going through the Panama Canal now look at us. The ride has been great, the new auto pilot is steering so straight we are making great time. Tomorrow we turn a little more left and onto the home stretch. Talk to ya later
Amy, Tom and Ron
