Welcome LSchell. My partner and I left Thunder Bay a few years ago for a full-time cruising lifestyle. We live on our boat
about seven months of the year (b/c we’re still in Canada), and do other things for the remaining.
There’s a wealth of knowledge here on CF. You’ll get the most useful responses if you ask focused questions, providing all the necessary background.
Without knowing anything about you I’d say the most important thing to do right now is to get a cruising boat
and start living the lifestyle as best you can. Learn to live and cruise
well before you make the big lifestyle change.
For me and mine that meant a decade of extended journeys on the upper Great Lakes
. Each summer we’d go off for a minimum of a month, sometimes up to three months. This allowed us to gain some experience, and also confirm the lifestyle is what we both wanted.
