I want to live aboard.
I somewhat liveaboard
during the warm months(Lake Erie/Port Clinton).
This is "very", simple. I winter at my brother's house(he's often home for an hour or two every few days . . . sometimes not for a week), and I hate winter more and more every year.
I can't be simpler....
I do a little sailing here and there, but I'm on a limited income
, so all these transient docks and moorings(like at the islands), are out of the question . . . at least on a "regular" basis.
I am looking to summer in the Great Lakes
, spend maybe 1-2 months transiting the Erie Canal(each way), and seeking the freeze line on the east coast
for the winter(somewhere where the normal winter temps are about 50+ degrees) . . . then returning to Lake Erie for summer.
give decent(comparatively), rates for stays of a month or two, so I plan on the Erie portion to be in a Marina, and I hope for the winter months to also be in a marina.
I have no interest in going to foreign lands . . . not even Bahamas
. I just want to stay in the United States. This keeps things simple and leaves me with many more opportunities regarding health
I want to do this, but I'm not so sure I want to do it completely alone . . . I wonder about the idea of a flotilla of a sort?
Are there others out there . . . in the Great Lakes
region that similar ideas to do the same thing that also feel like not really wanting to do it totally alone . . . that might be more interested in a sort of flotilla way of travel?
