Where is Family Ties today?! You know... just paradise

Starting with the chart below, we are at Man O War Cay in the Southern Abacos, tomorrow we do a big jump to Eluthera. Here is tomorrow's track. About 80 miles total tomorrow.
Next is the Exumas. That's this chart. We'll spend a week or there.  To help you get your bearings  Nausau is on New Providence Island

Here is the unnerving part.

That's >1300 miles from Wickford IF I Could drive a straight line.  But I can't. So, my best guess is the return trip will be 2000-2150 miles. Cost of diesel is scary, $5.60 per gal.  Boat gets about 7/10ths of a mile per gal.  Gulp.

OPTIMISM CAN TAKE YOU ANYWHERE! But it won't pay the fuel bill.
