Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

Off to Dillon

Another adventure begins

Posts may be a bit sporadic for the next week or so, as Pat, Tadpole, and I head for Lake Dillon in Colorado with Black Magic for the Dillon Open Regatta. The regatta itself isn’t until next weekend, but we’re going a week early so we can get the boat in the water to practice and get used to conditions up there – from what we’ve been told, they’re super-changeable like here, but more so. Also, before the main regatta, there’s a J/24 regatta that Mother and Dumbledore will be sailing in, so we can cheer them on.

Dulce and Tres have gone to Grandma’s house, and Pat got a fancy “Pet Bistro” food and water dispenser set for Buddy, so even if he doesn’t have our company, he has our handouts. The truck’s all packed, and we’re nearly ready to go. Just a few odds and ends to take care of, and we’re off.

We will have the laptop along, and the condo where we’re staying is supposed to have Internet access, so we won’t be totally out of touch. For the regatta weekend itself, we’ll have a larger unit, so we have room for crew if anybody out there wants to show up to support the team.

We made it to Dillon and are installed in the condo, with room for any extra crew that might want to join us. Condo is cushy with all the amenities. Have a bit of a trailer problem with the trailer jack but should be able to get it fixed. Need to go take get Black Magic to the marina/ramp/rigging area and grab dinner.
