I''m from New Mexico and I left there and learned to sail in Alaska. I will probably be moving back to New Mexico in a few years to retire. My brother is also from New Mexico and is a sea captain. I don''t know how old you are or anything else about you but if you have some great desire to go sailing off into the sunset and are in a position to do so just drop everything and go to the coast and go sailing. Anywhere you think you want to go. You can always find a boat and buy it and go to some far off places. I''ve met plenty of people who did but they did it before they got wrapped up in some other life they couldn''t just drop.
