I saw a recent study that showed people had the greatest joy and happiness just before a vacation compared to during or after the event. We do the same thing as Capt.aaron describes. We are thrilled to be off to the wilderness anchorage and then a couple weeks later we're singing and hooting in the cockpit as we're approaching port. We are excited to start an adventure north in the summer and thrilled to be back in "home waters" for the winter. We love to "cut the cord" after languishing at a marina for the monthly rate, but excited to have the chance to plug into shore power a long time later. 'best to enjoy putting the anchor down as bringing it up!
