Up Next, Gulf Stream and a Nasty Storm

We've made good progress southward, albeit wet and often cold. The next challenge is dealing with the Gulf Stream and a nasty little storm heading up from the south.

By the time we get to Cape Hatteras, there will be a strong opposing wind to the formidable Gulf Stream current, so that's not an option. The plan is to skate the waters between the stream and the continental shelf off Virginia Beach then cross tomorrow morning when the wind shifts as the storm passes by to the east of the stream.

John's usual first 24 hours of hard knocks has passed and he's contemplating eating a chicken ceasar wrap.
