Re: The economics of sailing around the world

Sailing around the world at age 18 didn't occur to some of us because, at the time, we were fighting a war with Vietnam. Sailing around the world wasn't on the menu of draft deferments. We went to school and when our number came up, we went to war. of course, some of us volunteered.

Whether it's sailing around the world or hiking the AT, there are trade offs in life to be made. I don't look at my kids and think, I wish I did something else with my life. I wouldn't trade a day with them for anything. I'm sure that speaks for everyone here. So, we are left with the old fashioned way of getting it done - earn our way there. For some of us that will work, some it won't, and for most, they could care less. Sailing around the world, or for that matter, further than the horizon, just not on the bucket list.
