Long time lurker, first time typer

Just saying "hi" after years of visiting here whenever I needed good sailing information, and asking permission to come aboard as member of the community!

I'm in the process of buying a sailboat with the intention of taking her on a 5-7 year voyage around the world.I've already been poking around here (a LOT) for research on buying the right boat and planning for the journey, and thought I'd finally introduce myself.

I've got around 5,000 blue water miles and two circumnavigations of the Caribbean under my belt from 25 years ago - that's not a lot, I know. But it's enough to let me know what I'm getting myself into. :-)

I'm based in Lake Tahoe, CA right now, and will be moving down to the Channel Islands area to prep the boat (and skipper and crew) over the summer, so I'm looking forward to meeting some of the California coastal sailors over the next few months. :-)

Thank you for being such a great resource for sailors of all stripes.

Welcome aboard, and give a heads up when you get down here to Channel Islands! I'll LET you help me work on my boat, and then I'll race you out to the islands!

Lol- thanks Don- that's awfully generous of you!

I'll let you know once I'm there full time. I do a lot of sailing by myself and it's always more fun to play with others on the water/ looking forward to meeting you. :-)
