We are about 1800 nm from the Marquesas. The enormaty of this venture is
starting to sink in!
We have been focused on crossing the Pacific. Now that we are closing in on
that goal I find us like the dog that chases cars and then catches one!
What do we do next
There are lots of islands between us and Asia not to mention several
thousand more miles (at 100 nm per day). Do we fade South toward New
Zealand or fade North toward Japan, Korea, and China? Or stay neutral and
go direct Singapore? One thing is clear - we don't have a clue! We will be
working hard at making friends with "local knowledge."
Of course the icing on the cake is avoiding typhoon season which is
different North and South of the equator.
If you were in our position you would hop on the Internet and start
learning. Unfortunately WiFi is a little thin out here.
