Captain Scaf’s Log: Abacos (FINAL, with MAP!)

Captain Scaf and Admiral Scripps
The Scafverse Goes to The Abacos!
Captain’s Log:

Thursday, November 10, 2011
Packing goes slowly. Crystal is crunching work to be able to get out of here in time. Flight is in six hours. Total sleep tonight between the two of us will be less than four hours.

Friday, November 11, 2011
Cruising 30,000 feet above the Gulf of Mexico as I write– will be in Miami in an hour. Still haven’t slept today (Crystal not at all!), but put our heads together and came up with a good working straw man for an itinerary. Only complicating factor is rough seas from subtropical storm Sean may be making the Whale Cut open ocean passing undesirable at the moment.
Last I read people were still making the pass… May look to do this in reverse order if weather substantially different later in the week.
On a lighter note: staying at the South Beach Shore Club tonight, having dinner at Nobu, and we were given table passes for Skybar.
Visibility is pretty good as we coast across the everglades, and it will be time to turn off all electronics soon… Check it out…
