“The Trail Ahead” is a large metal sculpture that is 400 feet long and over 20 feet high. It features 17 silhouettes of cowboys on horseback herding cattle. This metal sculpture was created to honor the ranching heritage of the area. People have come from all over the world to see it. Jal, New Mexico is a great little town with some special people. Jal got its name from the brand on the herd of cattle that belonged to the first settlers here in 1883. After the oil boom it became known as the “Gas Capital of the World.” #sailboatstory #sailboatstoryonshoreleave #jalnewmexico #newmexico #thetrailahead #familyadventures #rvtravel #crosscountrytrip
Spent last night at Hanger 25 in Big Spring, Tx. It was our first #harvesthost location and it was a lot of fun! We sat in the nose of a decommissioned B-52, we learned about the history of the Big Spring Air Force Base, and Molly traded her Huffy for a Harrier. @hangar25airmuseum @harvesthosts #sailboatstory #sailboatstoryonshoreleave #harrierjet #harrier #museum #hanger25 #bigspringtx #texas #dontmesswithtexas #familyadventures

We’ve loved spending time at Ben’s family’s land in Mississippi this week. It’s been a great way to start our cross country journey. #sailboatstory #sailboaystorydoesland #sailboatstorylandadventures #SailboatStoryOnShoreLeave #landyacht #rvtravel #missingthebahamas #familyadventure
Check out our newest video on YouTube!! We're making steps towards the next boat, but it might not be quite what you're thinking. We've gone and bought an RV. Yes... a big, ugly, rolling, turd of an RV. There is a method to our madness, so stick around while we explain what the heck is going on. Really, what it comes down to is this: 1) Gotta keep the First Mate happy. 2) First Mate has always wanted to go road trippin' 3) First Mate supports my sailing dream. 4) I kinda owe the First Mate to do her road trippin' thing. 5) The First Mate is always right. We plan to buy our next boat in Canada, and we thought the RV would make a great base of operations while we search for the next boat. That was the idea that spawned the RV purchase, HOWEVER... the idea kinda grew a bit to also include some dedicated land travel before we focus on using it for the boat search. It's scary to announce such a thing to our loving audience of dedicated sailor-folk. It's our sincere hope that you will stick around on this new kind of adventure as we do a bit of land exploration. It's going to be a great experience for Tambi and Molly... and I might even enjoy it too. ~ Ben, Tambi, & Molly | SAILBOATSTORY
This girl LOVES Double Breasted Cay. New video up today showing this amazingly gorgeous island in the Abacos.
Do you want your own a little piece of the Bahamas? Well now is your chance! I (Tambi) have made these beautiful glass jars, with lovely pink and white sand and a cute little shell inside. The sand and shells were picked up by Molly and I on the beautiful pink sand beaches in Eleuthera.
