The First Thing Breaks: John’s Laptop

13-JUL-2017, Juneau, AK – My laptop died a hard death this morning… no response to pressing the power key, the power supply doesn’t light when attached.

$500 at apple to repair… $395, and a bunch of charges. The final amount should be mid four-hundreds.

Last night Derek from our marina joined us for dinner. He’s crew on the boat, Serenity (which shows on AIS as Talos).

Arriving in Juneau yesterday afternoon, we found we knew the crews of six other boats. Some from this year, and a few from last year.

Sarah, at the Harbor Master’s office remembered us immediately. That’s a nice feeling. She and perhaps her boyfriend will come visit us. They are redoing a 46-foot sailboat.

While the laptop is backed up, everything is locked inside until we get it back. Draft posts were fortunately shared in drop box, though the pictures are not available, so I’ll try to get those up while we’re here. (One humorous post about cats was written after we last had internet, so that won’t be available until I get the drive back.)

We’re here in Juneau until Saturday, so we can be contacted.
