Hi all! I'm a 33yo DFW native looking to change my lifestyle a bit. I've always loved travel, ocean beaches, and boats, but my inland-based life only allows me to enjoy these things occasionally via vacations. I'd like to change my situation so that these things can be a larger part of my everyday life.
My ideal end goal is to live mainly aboard a sailboat, based somewhere along the gulf or atlantic coast that's close to a commercial airport
, and icing on the cake if I can snag a job that would complement with cruising. I'm sure this will take some time though- the major moving parts
are that I currently don't have boat/sailing skills, and do have property in Dallas and an employer I'd like to keep if possible. So, my immediate plans are to join a local sailing club to get trained up on boating
, and keep an eye out for a transfer within my company to a gulf/atlantic coast location.
Looking forward to bugging everyone with noob questions
And if you have any suggestions for me please drop a line- good beginner books
, best Dallas clubs, or whatever else. Thanks!
