Greetings from Upstate New York

Hello to all,
We are a couple, being on Lake Ontario for about 30 years and taking full advantage of all the lake has to offer.
We have been avid readers of these forums, learning much, laughing some and unfortunately, feeling bad when someone has misfortune posted here. Still we think that the fellowship and activity here is well on the plus side and wish to participate. Perhaps with some of our unique skills we may even be able to return some of the help and advice we have received.
We are now in the process, ( over 2 years in) of liquidating everything including the kitchen sink for that popular dream of travel. Our two families have accumulated over 100 years of consumerism and it takes time to go through, itemize, price and sell it all. We two are the sole leftovers of our families and feel that with our freedoms, its time to pursue that path to retirement, ( tho we both still have some years to go)
We had a 22' Venture poptop, but sold it this summer past. We plan to move a bit south and buy a larger boat, probably a 35 to 40 foot cruiser to spend time noodling around the good ol USA before heading outwards to ....somewhere.
Good dayz !
