[QUOTE=kenny chaos;609931]One friend had a dream/goal of retiring to his wood working shop.
Another, a pumpkin patch and hay rides.
Another, running a small machine shop.
Another, buying a small tug boat.
They all spent the time and money to get their dreams to reality but at retirement time, they all came to a screeching halt.
It just didn't fit their "dreams."
Their passion was in going to work everyday and having structure and direction.
Sadly enough, I think they lacked someone to tell them what to do.[/QUOTE]

I thought that was the boat's function, i.e. maintenence!

From what I know (or don't know) about Vancouver Island is once you can do that well, and easily, then you can do pretty well most places.

Facilitating Goals are just as important as the big ones.

Most people have some sailing grounds near them which can be great for proactice... exspecially if we go out in adverse conditions instead of sunny warm summer sundays.
