Hurricanes permitting, we'll be beginning our cruising less than a month from today, and I'm seeing the wisdom of owning nothing that isn't aboard. I give us a pass for the accoutrements of land-based jobs (cars, office clothing); and tools/building materials for the projects necessary to get our boat ready for cruising. But there's a surprising amount of stuff that was easier to accumulate than to shed, and some possessions that there's not really much excuse for except sentiment.
We've got enough real projects to do, to get ready to go, that I don't need to add "find a good repository for my [late] dog's favorite bandana, or the print from my photo-op with the Secretary of Interior" to my to-do list!!
