Inter Tropical Convergence Zone

In between the northern and southern hemisphere trade wind belts lies the intertropical convergence zone. Home to variable winds and lots of convection, there are many rain squalls about. We're getting pushed along and rolling through the waves that don't seem too organized. Today's task will be to adjust the gear shift mechanism on Pau Hana's transmission. The Lil' Swede is having a senior moment. It seem we have about 130 miles of this ITCZ to reach the NE trade winds on the north side. Not too bad.
