Wht on earth have we done?
When I was a kid,my father gave me one swimming lesson...over the side of the boat..I was about 6 or so.I lived through it and learned to swim.
56 or so years later my wife and I have sold the house and everything in and around it and bought a 40'sailboat and moved aboard....holly crap,what have we done? We've owned dirt since 1978 and can't for the life of us figure out why...what were we thinking?....
We'll be wintering in Portland Oregon,not paradise for some but for native Oregonians it's home.I've seen 60 winters here and there isn't much you can say that I don't know about the weather.WE LIKE IT HERE.
Any way what I wanted to say is thanks to everyone who has written here over the last 5 years about the trials and tribulations of living aboard.Some of it was good advice ,some was not and some was uncalled for snide remarks from negative people(my dad would say"go piss up a rope "to them).
So,with that said,We're happy with our decision,we're happy with our new home,and so far we're happy with all the people we've met along the way.
