Greetings, fellow Galley Pirates! And a Happy New Year to you all!
Looking forward to a fantastic start to 2018, this Galley Pirate is headed out on the excursion of a lifetime! Well, my lifetime anyway. Crewing in the World ARC on beautiful SV Solitude, captained by Gary with Admiral Torie in command, we will shove off St. Lucia January 6. Weather permitting will head to Columbia then onto the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama. We’ll hang there for a few days, pick up (my!) Skipper Doug in Colon, then motor through the Panama Canal, rendezvous in Las Perlas Islands then head straight to the Galápagos. I don’t have a bucket list but do love when others include me in on theirs! Track our progress here.
Check out what’s packed in a Galley Pirate’s duffle. This is just the beginning. See if you can find all 19 items below before I throw in my clothes, 3 lbs of Starbucks coffee and 8 lbs of Torie’s favorite wild rice.

Oh My Gosh, Foss!!! How exciting! Have such a great trip. How long will you be gone?
We pick up Doug in Panama Jan 28. We’ll be back March 1st. Never done anything quite like this before or been away this long. Thanks!!
Wow, the stuff in that duffel bag could supply the Navy Seals on a top-secret mission! I see Gary is still ordering you around—better hope you got the right parts. Bon voyage and give Gary and Torie my best. I look forward to your dispatches from the high seas.
Too funny!! Yup, and when Gary says “JUMP” I say “HOW HIGH?!?” I’ll tell them HI from you!
Glad I had a preview of todays post. Love and good luck on your trip.
thanks Maureen!! (a few technical issues on the duffle bag graphic however; image shifting depending on what browser you’re using.) Just made hambone stew to keep Doug fed for a few days! Love…
Curious to know what Toris favorite rice is?
Trader Joe’s Cultivated Wild Rice! Yup, 8 packages of it for her! Have a great New Year!
Have a glorious trip. Don’t forget to return. Warmest best wishes for 2018.
Thank you Mil! And MANY MANY THANKS for the magazine and Newfoundland cooking info. My Canadians In Laws knew about that Fogo Island Inn. Cool write up! Happy New Year!
Rock on! Can’t wait to hear about your adventures!!
I plan to post stuff to our Galley Pirates FB page but I’m a little concerned there won’t be any internet access. We shall see….!
