After reading these forums
for some time, I noticed certain personality traits thread through most of the people on here. I think it may be a thirst for adventure (Huck Finn blood), patience and above all, acceptance. The replies to my first post prove some of this.
OK. I am a landlocked Minneapolitan (Minneapolis)...although two lakes are within walking distance of my house...
...My "work" brought me to SW Florida
quite a bit, so that is what I "know". I was looking at houses in the Ft. Myers/Naples area, the Keys...that area. My criteria was that the house had to have sailboat access. Not as easy as it looks! As I do love my family
and friends in Minnesota
(Boundary Waters Canoe Area!!) I decided I want to be here some part of the year (Summer). So, now, I sail on one of the larger lakes in a boat club...almost everyday and peruse the ads for a liveaboard
of a sailboat I wouldn't mind squeezing a 6'4" frame into for a couple weeks at a time. Thank you all for the welcome, I think I found the right community here. Cap. P.S. GORDMAY: Capt. Ron's logic about fuel running out as
evidence of him being right makes PERFECT sense to me.
