I can think of few places that are better for cruising than the San Juan Islands here in the US....maybe Southeast Alaska or the Florida Keys......this truly is a boater's paradise! There wasn't much wind a lot of the time, so I did motor quite a bit....but I did get to raise the sails for a while. Thought I'd throw a little video together. Never edited one before so it's pretty basic and sorry about the video quality....the only camera I own is ancient. Shout out to @CrowTheBard for the inspiration!!!

@Matt Derrick Oh man, that would be awesome. The campsite is owned by DNR and I think the only thing someone would make a stink about out there is off leash dogs....I'm not sure how often they go out there to check though. Also, for that particular spot....they only allow overnight camping from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day Weekend. There are lots of other places to just drop anchor and make camp ashore though. I'm sure @CrowTheBard would lend use of his boat, maybe Quinn too???

Awesome video man!
I think putting a Jambo together on one of the islands is a killer idea! We could ferry a whole bunch of folks out between all the boats and set up some camps on shore. I freaking love that idea!

Keep making the videos. They’re awesome!

Cheers,
Crow

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
