Hello from Connecticut

Been on the forum for some time but this is my first time posting. I have already picked up some great info on here! My wife and I plan becoming full time cruisers once I retire in August and heading down to Florida (where our sailboat currently is) spending time around the state then proceeding to head to the Bahamas and eventually to the islands of the Caribbean. Looking forward to our new adventure!

Re: Hello from Connecticut


What kind of sailboat do you have? You might consider adding that to your profile.
Congratulations on your imminent retirement!

Congratulations, Just imagine, no longer will someone turn on the lights and blow an air horn to wake you a few times every night. I've been retired almost 17 years, certainly missed some of it for a while, but only thing better than being a fireman is being a retired fireman with all your fingers and toes, so to speak.

Yea Iím sure I will miss it, and it doesnít help right now that I live near one of the stations and those clowns constantly let me know when they are on a run in the middle of the night going past my apartment. Iím sure my neighbors donít appreciate it but I do get a laugh from it now and then. And your right just being able to go home after shift with all your fingers, toes and friends is always a good day! Stay safe Brother!
