Great Ambition

"It's a rough life, but someone's got to live it!"

Fourteen years and still going!

This is the continuing story of our new life as River Rats on the Columbia River aboard our Trimaran Transporter houseboat we named Great Ambition.

If you want to see how we got here (and hints on how you can do it too) see Great Ambition, the beginning.

We took a cruise in Lil' Ambition and while we were cruising around we saw a floatplane come out and do a takeoff and later a landing. Here I have just the takeoff.

Later we saw a Wood Duck hanging around Cassleman's marina.

Our neighbor Jason is out sailing his refitted dinghy for the first time. He did a great job working on it and sailing it.

14 years ago we met the truck carrying Great Ambition at the Troutdale truck stop. The rest as they say is history.

And here is what we do with eternity. A plastic bottle is drifting by, so it's a valid target for our slingshots.Now you know.

A floating home being pushed upstream.

I noticed the starboard engine squirting less water than normal so I removed the lower unit and replaced the water pump impeller. It wasn't easy over the water, but it can be done!

Lori is back! Yay!

Lori back again!

A pair of rowers that come by every morning.
