Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

The Mexican Immigration has asked that we re-file our working papers starting brand new in mid-September.
A whole new file started.
Which means we need to leave the country and then come back in.
In the next 7 days...Now if the chick (who we paid!) helping us with the paperwork initially, had just simply sent me an email when we were having difficulties the first time, we could have obtained new 180 day visas when we drove in the country in July.
But noooooooooo!
So road trip or fly?
That is the question.

On a lighter note, here's another interesting fact from a Snapple cap.
I think I will stick with the goldfish theme for now, then move on into salt water and ocean facts.
Yes, I have too much time on my hands...
And now I am getting a headache from banging my head against the wall.

Interesting fact #431:
#431 A twit is the technical term for a pregnant goldfish.
And here I always thought a twit was someone that didn't convey important information to you via email when your paperwork needed to be changed so you could get new visas because you were already out of the country and the twit knew it cause she got you papers to leave the country. Twit.

this one makes you stop and think:

#123 Beavers were once the size of bears.

Beavers the size of bears!?!?!?! AHHHHHHHH

Anyways -- what a twit. I can't believe you have to flee Mexico. It's kind of ironic... almost. But it's definetly very crappy. :(

I'm sorry.

We got our boat import permit in Ensenada in an hour or so. What we have been attempting to get for a few months are our papers to work here (yes, I know who wants to work... but unless some rich mom and dad want to adopt the two of us??). What kind of boat is "Shadow", do you know where it is and do we just ask for the brother of Markitos? I wouldn't mind slapping someone around a bit right now... :)
