Headed back to Cabbage Key…and I Love Me Some Checklists!

Okay, so I’m loading up the truck and headed out ass-early tomorrow. You can hear more about how this job came about in Episode 7 (and I suspect a little more in this week’s Ep. 8)…but meanwhile, just a peek at The Multimedia Ninja Kit for this week’s jaunt.

(Just FYI, the plan is I will be driving 8 hours Thursday from Atlanta to St. Petersburg, then making a nice 14-hour sail from there towards Cabbage Key. So why not just drive to Pineland, Florida and take a ferry to Cabbage Key? That would be way too easy!)

So here’s a sampling of the gear I’m throwing in the Yukon and then onto Jacie Sails:
