On Passage to Chuuk

We had planned to (reluctantly) skip Chuuk (Truk Lagoon), because of all the bad things we have heard about it. We really wanted to go there to dive the wrecks, but it just seemed like such a lawless place that we decided not to (Dave planned on flying in from Palau a little later in the year). Well, the Peace Corps workers we met in Lekinioch and Satawan, who are based out of Chuuk, told us we should go. They are young mid-twenties women, and say they feel comfortable walking around on their own there, so we shouldn't be scared to go.

So, we are on our way to Chuuk right now...arriving in the morning. We'll stay for about 10 days and then island-hop our way west to Yap. We tried to get Westware II to come with us, but they are more on a schedule than we are, and felt they needed to keep heading west to Palau. So we are on our own for a bit.

We had a really nice visit in the Mortlocks, visiting Lekinioch and Satawan, and I hope to blog about that soon.
At 03/19/2014 10:01 AM (utc) our position was 06°21.57'N 152°47.59'E
