Knowledge about a place before you get there is really important for us. It helps from the standpoint of preparing us for clearing in procedures, to what the anchoring or mooring is like, to where the grocery store is, to what there is to do, the fuel and water offerings, and so on. Having that knowledge helps to guide where we go and with our planning in general.

It is apparently so important for Caroline and I that the kids have realized that it is a source of knowledge for them to.
