I live 100 miles from the nearest navigable source of water
. Well, other than a canoe or kayak
However I have developed a desire to sail around the world.
Now, I have sailed around the world, well, partway, as a member
of the U.S. Navy
. Hence the username. Heck, Im even a shellback. But I have only been on the ocean once since 88.
But I am tired of land and the people on it, so I am starting to think of just sailing into the sunset.
However, I have a wife who is non to thrilled about the prospect, and I don't even know if she will go. Heck I don't even know if I will................
But I am interested in living aboard
, and at least doing local coastal sailing. This would be the west coast
. We are talking Mexico
, possibly east coast
This will not be happening for a few years, so I am here to start my learning
process. I have already learned much just lurking, but I have questions, so I joined.
I am planning on taking some sailing lessons
starting this summer, so no, I won't be one of those "buy a boat and learn as I start a global circumnavigation" guys.
Anyway, Ill try not to be much of a bother as I don't know anything so I have nothing to contribute.
Just wanted to say hi, so when my name pops up asking a question you'll kinda know who the noob is.
