Shatoosh, Pashmina and I cruised to Gig Harbor this weekend.. I met Hans Schumacher and his wonderful family cruising on a Mac Greggor 25 named Trapiche. They introduced themselves and stated they had seen The Lt Peter Puget Memorial Project write-up in April 48 North and had also read Carol MacKinnon's Article in May.
They had 3 days off in May so took our suggestions to heart and headed out to do Puget's Route for 3 days. Congratulations to you. They had the history books on board and read them along the way. This is part of my dream coming true. Replication and learning history along the route. Hans please share this with your MacGreggor groups.
This brings up a new question: What do we call ourselves when we follow in Puget's Wake?
What are your thoughts?

2.. Vancouver Notch: Washington State Committee on Geographic Names Approved Proposal on October 23, 2015
On 1 December 2015, The Washington State Department of Natural Resources Board approved Vancouver Notch as an official name. The US Board on Geographic Names denied my Proposal based on new coordinates which put the feature in a Wilderness Area. January 3, 2017, the WA Board rescinded its approval to denial status.
