Aside from our extensive socialising, we've been doing LOTS of boat projects (I'll let Steve do that blog, along with all the boring pictures) and trying to reprovision for our upcoming trip to the Bahamas and Caribbean. We decided a long time ago that no matter where we go, the people who live there eat. It may not be what we're used to, but we'll never starve. This I know, but... I do have a couple favorite things that I'm not willing to be without. JIF, creamy, reduced fat, for one. And Doritos. And good chocolate. And Close Up toothpaste. And a nice crisp glass of white at the end of the day. And toilet paper. We're talking quality of life here. So we've been trying to find out what will be available (and affordable) and what we need to really stock up on. I've been tracking our consumption of things for years now and have a pretty good idea of how fast we use things up. But I still have a hard time buying 100 rolls of TP and an even harder time finding a place to put it. Because that is the hardest part of all: putting it away and then finding it again. I have an great inventory of what we have, it's just not always so great as to where we have it. At this point, the lockers and my back are both groaning, the credit card is smoking, it's time to go. I can live with inferior peanut butter.
