Is this what we want to be?

This article in Sail World Online Magazine paints an interesting picture of long time cruisers...

Absurdity & exaggeration are funny. Like all good caricatures, the article outrageously exaggerates some of the characteristics of a typical TLD Cruiser, while still keeping the underlying truths recognizable.

Thank you as it has made my day and got a bit more fire under the boiler to get the work done to get there. YES that is A PERFECT way to live a life and raise kids too.

Things are looking up and a bit strange at the moment but we are working on getting there.
