I just read back through all the posts in this thread...
...over two years since I started it and just about a year since the last post.
And we're still not on a sailboat! =:(
We ended up going back to Alaska for the summer and then kind of "got caught" up here as winter hit hard so we decided to hunker down. We're still in 208 square feet with electric
and no running water
, so we're sailboat-sized, at least.
As the snow piles up outside I flip through sailboat magazines, listen to Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Eric Stone, etc., and try to figure out the "trick" to making it work.
I'm on a deadline. My son turns 16 in February and if I don't get us onto a sailboat before he's 18 and gone it'll just suck -- a lot. And my business, which took a nosedive in 2006, seems to have finally bottomed out but it doesn't seem to want to head back up again.
So while I'm not panicking today, I can see it down the road a little bit waiting for me.
I don't mean this post to be a downer, just updating where we're at.
The only plan I have at this point is to make it through the winter, spend summer up here (because we manage a county park and get free RV camping) and in early September head SOUTH! I do NOT want to get caught up here again. =:)
Meanwhile I keep cranking away on new products and hope to come up with one that creates the needed moolah to do what we want. I know, as a "plan" it's a little think on detail, but it's the only one I have today.
Tomorrow, who knows? =;)
