Re: Crew, the world and sad, sad evolution...

I am 37 years old... I spent the last 6 years living in a small basement apartment because its all I can afford where I live, to be on my own. I spent all my time watching sailing videos... delos and vagabond obviously being the most famous two.. I should have prefaced this by saying I spent time in south east asia, volunteering when I was 18 years old.. I always thought I would be a world traveller. here I am, stagnating, waiting to die. so I decided to say no more... I will never own a house here, the bank wont help me no matter how much money I bring them. I am selling all my stuff at the end of this summer and its time. I dont know what the best way to find a place on a boat.. but I hope when the time comes someone will take me. I am keen to learn from an old dog... on an old boat. I have no desire for luxury or fancyness. I have dreams and they aren't quite dead yet. I hope an old dog like you will teach me the ways one day and maybe instead of a house I can buy a boat instead. I was touched by your post, that you lament the changes in the world, it spoke to me as someone who also feels the same way.. and I just wanted to say I hope you can pass on your knowledge before you decide to call it quits. Cheers to you and **** the glass, fill'er up with some tequila and watch the sun go down.... thats the life.
