We are Frank and Carrie, married (to each other) these past 27 years and still in love. We enjoy our home, our family, our friends and our work. We also love boats! In fact, we fell in love on a boat nearly thirty years ago. We are off on the adventure of a lifetime. It is something we have been dreaming, planning and scheming to do for several years. Once Around is our boat, purchased especially for the trip. Join us as we circumnavigate the eastern third of the US at about 10 knots!

We're Back in NY...with a New Gadget!
My able First Mate, Vanna, here displays the very latest in Looper gadgetry. I learned about it a short time ago from Danny on Potest Fieri. It is a little gizmo called "SPOT", which for a minor subscription charge allows me to report our position whenever I feel like turning it on and pressing the "OK" button. There is a new link on the Once Around blog labelled "Find Us". If you click on Find Us, you will go to a Google map showing our precise location. You can toggle between Map and Satellite and actually get a photo of the dock or anchorage we were at when we pressed SPOT. Pretty darn neat, huh? Hope you like it. More to follow.
