Howdy Partner, Your neighbor from Wyoming here! Maybe I can encourage you a bit, in May 2009 we got the sailing bug and took a 10 day sailing
course in Marina Del Ray. In August we drove our Tahoe to the east coast
and went shopping
with less money
than we should have had. In September we closed on our boat in NC and sold the Tahoe in the parking lot. In November we were headed south down the ICW
. Spent Christmas
in Key Largo
, New years in Key West
, Superbowled in Nassau
, birthday in the Jumentos, summer in Maine
...then ran out of money!
Now we work back in Wyoming and then go cruise
a while! (about 50/50) for us this is the best of all worlds.
However you choose to do it, listen to others advise but do what makes sense to you. My story my seem irresponsible to some, but we studied and learned new things as we went. In a short time we cowpokes became some pretty good sailors and so can you. Sailing is one of those things you can never learn it all but you can learn more each time...but you have to start somewhere!
