Now you know just how geographically dissadvantaged we are. Our 4-5 year plan is to escape the confines of the rat race
and transition to a more liquid environment
. We are early 50's so our knees should still be in pretty good shape for the "leap" aboard. She is from New England
and has considerable sailing experience. Although I am a west Texas
boy, I have owned and sailed a small boat on area lakes. Currently we have a power boat
but I'm ready to ditch that and get another sailer. We have chartered together in the BVI so we have some exposure to life aboard.
Since we are still a few years away from being able to go full time, I was thinking it would be a good idea to get something in the 30-something foot range possibly for use on lake Texoma on the Texas-Oklahoma border. It's a big lake...89,000 acres and can get quite ugly during stormy weather
. We would be limited to weekends for the most part. If we could find the right boat there, maybe we good get it set up for a transport down to the Gulf for our beginning getaway in a few years. We welcome any thoughts, ideas or attempts to talk us out of the whole thing. FYI..."We aint' skeered a nuthin"
