The American Adventure

The American Adventure started with "Gladlee" being shipped over to the States from Palma, Mallorca in Nov/Dec 2004 and we then cruised in US waters until July 2005. These diaries can be found at:

The American Adventure.

At the end of July 2005, we took "Gladlee" out of the water for storage at Deltaville Marina and returned to Oman for Ron to take up a job with IOGS. The Oman diaries can be found at OMAN or the Oman button on the Home Page.

From 3rd to 17th October 2006 we decided to take a holiday and hired an RV (Recreation Vehicle) from near Washington in the US, to see how we liked this way of travelling. These diaries can be found at:

RV Trip.

We spent about two and a half years in Oman and left again in January 2008 to cruise with our friends Frank and Tari on their catamaran "Vision" in the Caribbean. The diary for this can be found at: 

Caribbean cruise onboard s/Cat "Vision" 7th February to 15th April 2008.

We left them in Puerto Rico and flew up to Washington, and then drove back to "Gladlee" in Deltaville where we recommissioned her and started cruising again. In June 2009 we decided to put the boat back in storage and buy an RV  and go 'land' cruising. The diaries can be found at:

On the 18th May 2010 we travelled back out to Oman, Ron resuming his job with IOGS. We stayed for two years and then went back out to the US to sail on "Gladlee" and travel with "Harvey".

Continuing our travels in America, we arrived back in Deltaville on 8th June 2012.
