Thanks guys for yall's support.I have been looking around the site for months now and some of the things talked about and described I have no clue as I have much to learn but I'm ordering some recommended books
,learning to tie sailing knots etc etc,anything I can do and learn b4 I even start my sailing lessons
w/south coast sailing in kemah. I thought I might be a little crazy with my dream of heading out to the blue,exotic places etc till I started researching and found this site and more-turns out I'm not and didn't realize the cruising community was as large as it is. When my wife and I lived on st croix we met a few cruisers at the bars in christiansted and always thought sailors were on vacation
or retired etc. That's where the seed for the dream started I guess at the christiansted brew pub over a blackbeards ale. My oldest daughter is about to graduate Texas
A@M in nautical archaeology and start her masters at East Carolina U or A@M and we are inching closer to that dream as the youngest daughter will grad high sch soon and start her degree in Elementary ed at SFA where she hopes to possibly teach 2nd grade in the islands. We are greatly lookin forword to the adventure!
