We did and are close to a point where the economy and other political situations will finally motivate us to cast off for the last time.

The boat is ready, so south Pacific here we come!
The south pacific is over rated. Boat builder John Hutton told me "Tahiti is ruined! Don't bother." That was in 1983. Still there is a lot of traffic headed that way. Things have changed recently vis. anchoring and mooring permissions according to folks that have arrived in Honolulu in recent months.

If nothing else, the weather is good more often than not.

Re: When is it time ?

We have a friend that has bounced between Pago Pago and French Samoa. He has sent us pictures and we've spent hours chatting about how he gets along and the people there. It seems nice in that area. We will probably head down there first and then decide what to do next.

Re: When is it time ?

When is it time? When you hear the call. The folly so many experience is the waiting. Waiting because we resist change, or the fear or an unhealthy love affair we have with the shadow of a life we have grown accustomed. A long time cruiser I know has said people he comes into contact with say "You are living a life I will die dreaming of", those are profound words. I myself use to sail long long ago and always dreamed of cruising. Then I put aside my passion for what was the norm, 25+ years of systems administration and programming later I have only one regret in life, that I let go of my passion. Now here I am scraping together dollar bills, selling what little I have so that I may at least revisit it and do a little coastal cruising. Go small, go simple but go prepared. That is my plan and the timeline is short. The two years you spend settling things to go cruising are two years you will never get back. Bartered for a few moments more in a life mediocre. Waste no more of your life, provision and square your boat, grab your charts, plot a course, consult your wind maps and go!

Re: When is it time ?

Well, for Lealea and crew it is TODAY; as soon as the laundry is done and breakfast finished.

Departing for Sitka in a couple of hours so we will be off-line for about a month

Great post but since the transmitter is on the ground, why was it a reason you sold the plane?
