Idiot question#5 Getting OUT of the gulf for the summer

So, I understand the gulf is a great place to cut your teeth sailing, and you can spend a few years exploring it. But when would you want to leave? We are talking full time live aboard status here, so putting it on the hard during hurricane season is not a go. Which direction would you want to go? Through the canal and up to San Diego area? Up the east coast? Where is a good place to park in a Marina and work for the summer before taking off again in the winter ? When would you want to start heading that way?
Thats more than one question I know, but its more a subject than a question.

Re: Idiot question#5 Getting OUT of the gulf for the summer

Go up the Tenn-Tom to Chattanooga or Guntersville if you want to work.

If you're simply avoiding storms, you generally have ample warning and can hang out between Gulfport and Panama City and explore the coast and bays and rivers until a named storm is predicted to come close, then head up river to avoid the storm. If you get to Demopolis or farther north, you're out of the danger zone.

Work? Why would you want to do that?
