Dr. Laura Blogs From Her Boat

Net Radio and SIRIUS XM talker DR. LAURA blogs, "This is my last day of preparation before TRANSPAC -- the sailboat race from CALIFORNIA to HAWAII in which I'm participating. I have to organize all my gear (which is easier for guys who seem able to live in the same clothes for days and days). Since we start out with cold weather and end up with very warm I have to bring a range of layers. I don't have much subcutaneous fat so I am cold when the guys are in t-shirts, shorts, and flaps!
"TODAY I shop for my last piece of gear: a hat which keeps the sun off my face and neck -- a necessity the closer we get to HAWAII.
"TOMORROW (WEDNESDAY) morning we all meet in LONG BEACH early to take KATANA (my boat) out for a shake down; we will do the same thing THURSDAY. THURSDAY night we will have our 'last supper' on land for a week or more."
