At last

Hi all,
Well it's finally happened for me, I'm a live aboard.
I retired 3 weeks ago, packed up and have driven across Australia to Bowen, 5000km, 9 days.
Arrived last night to my new to me Hartley Queenslander, 36 ft.
Now the challenge is to move my gear on board, of course I have far more gear than I have space for, so a big sort out is going to have to happen, a few(lots) of tough decisions to make,
all good fun,
Cheers, Emmo

Re: At last

I hope you enjoy your time on board as much as I do. I hope you enjoy the adventures and the people you meet too. One thing you might not need now that you are retired is an alarm clock. Might as well leave it on the dock.
