Hi Justin! Go for it! Two of our best cruising boat friends were actually from "landlocked" Montana.
Both cruised full-time for a bunch of years - one bought their boat in the Rio Dulce, Guatemala
engineless and hauled a brand new Yanmar diesel
down in a pickup truck piled with crap looking like the Beverly Hillbillies so no one would see it.
These days, both couples have sold their boats and are currently "cruising" the world -- one couple is in Nepal and the other was headed to India
-- they live in other cultures for six months or more at a time - another way to experience the world. Have fun & go for it!
