One year to go: Monday January 7, 2013 I set sail!

This will be the longest 365 days of my life. The boat is bought and paid for, the date is set. Just finding more projects to do and build up the bank account for the next 365 days.

I will be leaving Fort Myers Beach, FL on or before January 7, 2013!

First two-three months in the Bahamas, then the Virgin Islands, then Leeward & Windward Islands, followed by the ABCs and South and Central America, and back to Florida.

That should take me about 12-18 months or so.

After that it is a month of family time in Florida, and on to year two in the Med. And then beyond!

Budgeting a 5 year circumnavigation.

You got my envy, you lucky guy. You will be getting off less than one week before I turn 60. Use wi-fi after your departure to keep us posted.

LOL so how many sleeps!!!!

Hope it goes well. I am still buying bits, but we will leave on our Date for sure.

Unless we get stuck in our storm force winds that often make our summer here in the north so special! lol
