A smaller boat, a bigger suitcase of money, lot's of elbow grease!

Life is a short journey, filled with emptiness and pain. Get all the sailing and booty you can.

Your ONE piece of wisdom...

Don't sit and plan for the future, you're in it! A sweet piece of advice that stuck with me is this: Keep your boat 15-minutes-to-sail. Everything has a place and always returns to it, your headsail is on deck, your lines are run and dressed, your engine is tuned and fueled, and you have extra food and water tucked away.

Then the first free second you have, you can hop aboard, motor into the bay, raise your sails and GO!

Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...

In regards to sailing; the cost and reward will be much more than you can possibly plan for...

Both are worth it 10 times over.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Don't ask less experienced crew to do something you are not yet comfortable doing yourself.
