The most important thing about trying the cruising lifestyle, wheather you stick with it or not is, at least you got to see what was on the other side of the mountain...and you'll never have to wonder about 'what ifs'.

Thank all of you for sharing your stories. I do believe that this is something that we can do. I still worry that I may be unrealistic about what all is going to be required and our abilities to cope, but we are proceeding on! Surely cruising isn't as hard as making a night cross wind approach at weather minimums while bench pressing one's max or some such!

Happy Old cruisers!

This has been a great thread for me to read. We have just started investigating cruising. It is something that appeals to both my husband and me. We are looking at at least six years out before we can do any long term, just-the-two-of-us cruising. We have a sixteen year old son and a twelve year old daughter. We plan to stay where we are until she gets out of school and sail weekends, summers, etc. til we can go longer. Also, we own a tax prep business and our initial plan is to cruise from May 1 to December 1 and work the store for the four months of tax season for awhile. We are taking the 'ease into it' approach.
