Welcome to our mid-life crisis! These are the chronicles of Laura and Patrick, their young son Jack, and their goofball Labrador Retriever named Evinrude (Rudy), as they travelled the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific coast of mainland Mexico in their catamaran. We went cruising in search of a change of pace, a closer knit family, and peace of mind. We found all three and more. The fun all started in October, 2008 and nearly four years later the Mexican adventure came to an end August 3rd, 2012. With our mid-life crisis cured in Mexico, we are excited to start a new adventure - life back in America.

Patrick has since joined the Sales Team of Marine Servicenter as a boat broker. Whether you are looking to make your dream of sailing away come true, or ready to sell your boat he can help. He can be reached at http://marinesc.com/about/crew/patrick-harrigan

Redwoods Road Trip Pictures

We took Highway 1 up along the coast of California through the Redwood Forests and then cut over on small highways through Oregon before joining I-5 south of Eugene, Oregon on our way up to the Great Pacific Northwest. We saw elk herds, elephant seals, acres and acres of huge trees, and miles of beautiful vistas, vineyards and small-town America.

Rudy was a very good Road Tripper and slept most of the way

The Drive Thru Tree was just a goofy hoot. I couldn't believe it when I saw the line-up! At $5 per car, it's doing good business. The tree is about 2400 years old and still looks pretty healthy. We were so grateful to see beautiful forests again. Most of our pictures are of trees and we kept pulling over to take little hikes in the woods.
