Well... we are just starting out... we have big plans, with no clear idea on how to get from here to there. There are some basic things that have to be done of course. Buy a bigger boat to learn on, should have it Sunday :) Sell our house... if all goes well, should be sold May 7th... then comes the hard part. Money. How much do we need and how do we get it? How we sustain our lives out there? Can our nursing license and sleep study license work in other countries and how? Lot's of questions unanswered... therefore, I am blogging hoping to get some answers.
I am purchasing a boat that is bigger, wheel driven, and can do some pretty good costal sailing. We hope to leave in about 3 years. Giving us time to learn to sail better and figure out finances. We will stay close to shore after that for a bit to gain more knowledge about sailing on an ocean and staples. When we leave to do large passages we will need a bigger more sea worthy boat. so we have to come up with a way to upgrade at some point as well.
We want to leave as soon as we can so my oldest can experience everything with us. She'll be 15 when we head out. We will probably work out of Florida for a while saving like crazy for a bigger vessel. I don't know what exactly is in store for us... but I can't wait to find out!!
