Land Blog **coming soon**

by Sara on June 25, 2015

We have been back in Bozeman for just over a week now and I can not stop writing about our daily happenings… I think a “Land Blog” is in order. One of Chris’s friend’s made a comment once about Tumbleweed being a silly name for a boat. This friend then said, “what do you call your house in Bozeman, MT? Sargassum?” Of course I had to look up what “Sargassum” meant. The Wikipedia definition is as follows:

“Sargassum is a genus of brown macroalgae (seaweed). Numerous species are distributed throughout the temperate and tropical oceans of the world, where they generally inhabit shallow water and coral reefs, and the genus is widely known for its planktonic (free-floating) species.

Sargassum is seaweed that is floating around in the oceans. Since Tumbleweed is basically defined as dead plants blowing around in the wind, I think sargassum (or seaweed) fits as our new nickname for our land house. I think a “Seaweed Adventure” blog may be in order… hmmmmm… Stay tuned…

PICTURES! Our last days on Tumbleweed

by Sara on June 25, 2015

Our last days on Tumbleweed. We arrived back in the USA via Miami. We then sailed around Florida to Bradenton and Regatta Pointe Marina. We worked on the boat for 10 days, put it up for sale, and then flew back to Montana. Bittersweet.

May 28th, 2015: The End

by Sara on May 28, 2015

We pulled into the marina the next morning and met with our broker. This really is the end. We have 2 weeks to get all our junk off the boat and get it into ship shape. The broker was greatly impressed at how well she looked which we knew was the truth. She’s in great shape and after Chris gets the generator back up and working, all systems will be a-go.

We sailed 30,335NM in 3.5 years. We visited 39 different countries and hit 110 different islands/land masses. Epic. Tumbleweed was good to us and we will miss her greatly. I already can’t wait to do it again.
