As we close in on nearly two years off the grid and living now in the keys, we will be putting together a list on things we have learned to help others with their dreams to do what we are doing. 2019 season found us traveling in the Bahamas to ports like Bimini and Great Harbour Cay, Berry Islands. We watched as Hurricane Dorian destroyed parts of the northern Bahamas. Many great ports of call that we visited last year will take years to recover. And as we wait out this Hurricane season in the keys, one keeps a careful eye on the tropics. See our Travel logs.
New Publications! We published our second book “FIREMAN DOWN“, a fictional story of murder set in the surrounding of a firehouse. Look for our next book, “On Prevailing Winds“, a novice guide to escaping the dock and actually sailing to the Bahamas. Estimated due out Late Fall 2019.
Excerpts of our books can be found on our Publications page.
Living In Paradise
For years, people have heard us talk of sailing away, and living in paradise. Paradise is different to every person. Key West has been home port approaching two years now. See what makes this island the ideal locations for calling it home. You can find our thoughts under Key West
How did we do it?
A sailing boat was meant for traveling the oceans. For some, just the idea of a boat tied to the dock is enough. For us, we spend many years prepping the boat for greater things. You can see some of the items we did to make this possible under the Preparing Link
Blogs, Sites, Posts
We follow several sites and bloggers. As well as posts from people we have met along the journey. For our favorites you can see our Websites and Blogs
Why did we do it?
The reasons we opted for this lifestyle is as different as there are stars. Some were adventure, others were searching for hidden treasures, and still others for the sheer excitement… While many a man or woman are content to never venture past the sight of shore, there are those among us that look at distant waves and wonder what lies past the breakers of the harbor…
Since the advent of the internet, many an armchair sailor has explored the wonders of the seven seas from the comfort of their recliners, only risking warm beer and cold pizza as they doze off between web pages.
Then there are those of us that our family and friends question our sanity. Sometimes with good reason, and still we seek out the unknown. We are willing to venture to those places only told of in good old books, woeful songs, and distant memories of long ago movies.. Sailors. Boats. Oceans!
Follow us as we guide you thru the steps we chose to venture pass the breakers of our harbor, and to pass the fishermen standing on the shores. Follow us as we journey to…..
