I was hiking the Appalachian Trail and met my first mate in the mountains of Tennessee. We fell in love and were married in Virginia. After her stories of living aboard and cruising the caribbean I was hooked on the idea of the lifestyle. We got off trail and headed for Florida. Found a boat and have been living aboard for 4 months now with our 2 kids, a golden lab and a shitzu. Life couldn't be better. Can't wait to get s/v Chrysalis fully outfitted to head south this spring.

I was very lucky to marry my wife about 28 years ago, though we had been living together and sailing well before that. We lived aboard for 12 years straight at one point, and have numerous longer cruises together. She loves adventure just as much as I do. We decided to go to Bermuda one day while in the supermarket in Beaufort, NC. Left the next day, then continued on down to the Caribbean. The vast majority of the cruising boats we see are crewed by couples, married or not.

Congrats Chrysalis!

That's a delightful story. Thanks for sharing it here! Those Appalachian trails are magical aren't they?! A love of the outdoors carries from mountains and streams to islands and oceans! Good luck to you all!
