welcome aboard Dave.......and you mentioned not getting any bad responses.....and no thread is complete without at least one bad response..so here goes.........The US Navy has some really nice boats going that way!

(sorry, but I remember when I was your age and wanted to take up sailing..that's what I did) can't recomend it to everyone however.......Good Luck with it! and if you really want to stick it to me.....keep us updated on your progress......

I have a few regrets in my life.......near the top is....NOT going to sea on MY OWN boat (vs. the Navys) at your age......

What?!?! No "Don't revive old threads!!!" comments? I have no issue with it. I just couldn't resist.

I thought this was the best resecitation (?) of an old thread I've ever seen. The original poster found his way back to the site after 8 years!
That's awesome.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Yeah, really. I was waiting with baited breath as I read down the history waiting to find the necro-poster.

Since it was an update, by the original poster, I don't think it fits "reviving a dead thread".

The kids dream was to sail and sail big. As life would have it he's sailing smaller but still enjoying life and the big dream is still alive.

Absolutley!!!!! I can't count the number of threads that just end ..... with no resolution.

It's really great to see someone update their own old thread!

As I said, I never saw a problem with reviving an old thread, especially when it isn't resolved at the time, but regardless of who does it, it's still an old thread. A new person could find an old thread from a search the same way the original poster did, but somehow, it's bad etiquette when they do it. Makes no sense to me.

Update

Another update...
The shopping and realization of the boat dream continues. In the mean time I reside in Montana, no closer to the ocean and freedom. I have however started in what I believe to be the right direction.
Two years ago I bought a school bus and converted it into a land yaught. The construction was started when I got it and not I have almost finished it. I may not be living on a boat but I have been learning the systems. I have living off the grid or independent of it for those two years. Water comes from the rivers, power from the sun, and I have a incinerating toilet...
I have been on the boat path! I was working as a underground surveyor in a mine and have been layed off. To find another job that pays enough we have to relocate. Lucky to have the bus!
Option two I had a dream about last night. Trade the land yaught for a real one. (a270boarder@hotmail.com for Photos, movies, and anything information you would like.)
My wife and I also have the dream of a homestead... We are set up to do this now. The two year project of building a cabin is in reach and I fear that if we spend our saving to realize a dream we have in common, mine will never come to pass.
So living independent of the world on a hidden ranch or the water...
Change is coming for us one way or another.
I hope the holidays are treating you well
Dave
