Thanks for letting me vent.
One cool thing about this site is there is no shortage of boating
or personal advice.
The rat race is only a rat race if you let it be. Lot's of people I know wake up and wonder what the heck it's all about (hint - it's not about stuff).
You can't wave a magic wand and instantly get rid of the baggage that comes with the race but you can make a 3 or 5 year plan to rid yourself of all the baggage society has convinced you that you need.
You really have to convince the wife first and both of you team up to change things.
If you could free up $200 per month, in 2 years you could have a decent keelboat and $200 a month to play with it.
For $100 a month you could get a great dinghy
and have lots of fun, although that isn't what you see going up and down the ICW
