March 9th, 2012.... We wanted to address our mixed emotions on leaving our family after three months back home. When we return to California from our boat, we stay with our kids and grandkids. We help our kids with home projects and baby sit the G'kids-- we absolutely love those times. One of our best friends, Bill Klope Sr., told us that for him the best times in his life were when all his five kids were around the dinner table. We feel that way too. But we also feel that we need to fulfill our dreams-- we actually think that we are setting a good example for our kids and grandkids. We believe that you must set goals and strive to fulfill your dreams. Your dreams may not involve sailing your boat around the world-- it may be to travel around Europe, or visit every state in the union, or go to Africa and help the needy. Whatever your dream is--you need to go after it. Set a plan in motion to realize your dream while you are physically and mentally able to do it. You only get one chance at this life--but if you do it right the first time, you only need one chance.
