That pretty much sums it up only it was at the house in Prineville. More trips to Goodwill type organizations then i can count. Months of posting items on craigslist. Van fulls of stuff to family. And then there was the always full garbage can with the pile next to it. Then about that time you realize there is still to much and start over. After all that we still ended up with stuff in storage.

Re: First Night as Liveaboards

Just a thought,- if you move aboard early enough, as just out of college when everything you own still easily fits in your car; then, you never have to downsize!

Without the wheel how would you get to the beer store?

This is a great idea and would have saved lots of time. For any college age out there

Re: First Night as Liveaboards

Good Job Buhrly.

I hope to be there as soon as next year. Don't forget the sleep strips across the nose when you bunk down at night. I might be in the slip next to you.

When I started driving in the EU on the opposite side of the road, I had concerns that I would forget the correct side when I got back to the UK I was told it wouldnt be a problem.

Scarily, I find myself having to constantly question which side I should now be driving on and sometimes find it a challenge to work it out in a split second
Anjoy just remember to drive on the wrong side of the road and you'll do fine....:-)

Re: First Night as Liveaboards

I remember well my time chartering in South Norway with my 60' alu. motor yacht.
We had a fixed mooring spot in a sheltered but narrow canal at the foot of a large peninsula with a fair tidal stream running through. While this was keeping the canal ice free in the winter months,it also meant that a multitude of large and thick ice floes came drifting through. I had a couple of very long and sound boat hooks to fend off the floes when neccessary and remember getting up in the middle of the night to push away offending floes bumping into my flat transom,making sleep impossible.
Standing there in my pyjamas and slippers,snow covering my ancles and fending off the ice flows in a -23 C temberature,I remember saying to myself. "Hey,what are you doing here? Lost your mind?"

Later,meeting my wife to be on the internet,I spent the following two winters in Brazil before moving here permanently. Still doing the odd trip out to the verandah checking the weather,but now in +32 C. Still,I miss my live aboard time a lot....

Re: First Night as Liveaboards

Sinbad,
I spent a lot of time at Ubatuba. Beautiful spot. Sit and watch the girls go by drinking a cold Bohemian. I was working in Jacarei and Sao Jose Dos Campos at the time.

All I want to know is, who is Leta Lone? And why is she buying your next boat?
