Best example of 'livin' the dream' was a couple I met on a delivery in Cabo many years ago just at the beginning of the .com era. Both, in their 30's, had quit great jobs paying mucho $, sold their condo, car, furniture, etc and bought a Catalina 32 and were sailing the Sea of Cortez without a care in the world... name of the boat was Dessert First! They told me one evening over sundowners that they could always work and have kids and a house later, MUCH LATER, in life. I think they had it figured out... cheers, Capt Phil Now that I've retired from the sea, I'm a 70 year old ski instructor and still on the right side of the grass!
That sounds a bit like Nikki and I. Maybe We are 30 now and planning on cruising. So the dream I posted a few pages back could well be happening.
Don't let go of the dream... follow it and let it be your inspiration. Fortunately, I finally found the right companion to enrich my life and we spent 12 years living aboard, cruising and never looked back. My only advice is to go for it... you will find out quickly if it is right for you.
If you don't, you will spend the rest of your life wondering if you should have... Capt Phil
Get my boat ready for 2012,
sail to Europe and explore,
live aboard and cruise frequently,
sail around the world homeschooling and learning what life is really about, not just learning how to sit behind a desk and keep your head down.
