My immediate family understands my motivations, but not exactly how it all works. I get the "are you crazy" from my coworkers.

For instance, while at work the other night I got to talking to my coworkers(90% women...I`m a nurse) and explain that I have a 2 year plan to "retire" and sail away. So the first question is...

"How much does it cost to do that?" As much as you got

"Do I have a lot of savings/investments?" No

"What about working/career" I`m not so much retiring as I`ve decided not to work anymore...

Questions continue...
"What about your bills?" I don`t have any once my car is paid off on 12/09

"Kids" None of those either.

"Sailboats cost too much" Just depends on the vessel!

"What about money" Work when I need the money!

"Hurricanes" I`ll try to avoid as best as possible!

"Wife" She know s of my plan and she might join me....if not she will know where to find me!
"Insurance" Taking my chances...

"when will you come back home" I will be home...

The real world really has no idea of what we are all trying to do...

the nurses i worked with gave me the most flak about both my sports cars and my boat life----they could not understand it at all.........
