What Have You Givdn Up to Go Cruising ?

I was woundering what others have sacificed in life.

Lets see, we started in 2000 with our first child, fewer dinners, thought twice about items as a want or a need, limited our vacations, and saved. We bought a repo boat and do most of the work our self. Have been living serarate from the family for two years to beat capital gains tax and traveling 2.5 hours each way every weekend to see them.

Just waiting to sell the house and take off.

I think you might want to rephrase the list of items you sacrificed

I know Poseidon can be a bit demanding but sacrificing a child is way over the top

Yeah, maybe sacificing is not the right word choice. Our goal started in 2000 with our first child. I love my family but I'm ready to be with them full time in warm tropical waters.
