Long time lurker finally registered.

I have been reading sailnet for quite a while now and decided I should join in.

About me: I've been interested in sailing for the past few years after reading a few books on it and looking at pictures online. I've decided it is something that I must try. I grew up on a farm in a small town in central Wisconsin and currently live in Oshkosh, WI. I found the Fox Valley Sailing School and Oshkosh Yacht club both offer classes/lessons. If anyone is familiar with these I'd love to hear your input on them. I have absolutely zero experience but am willing to learn.

Being 25 and single I've come up with a 5-7 year plan of saving for a boat to singlehand around the Bahamas and possibly South America. The plan is to do this for 1-2 years before returning home. I don't want to live all my life without taking at least one big adventure. After that I can return my boat to the Great Lakes and sail there until I'm ready to head out again.

I really enjoy this site and thanks for any replies/advice,
Justin

1 man army,

Welcome, and who are you fighting?

It's easy to type maybe 1-2 years. Then the addiction sets in, and if you're lucky you meet a lady who loves it too. Next thing you know you find yourself in a self help group trying to get back to land....naaaaahhhhhh...go ahead, and leave the plan open.... .....i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

Lol, not fighting anyone. Just a nickname from friends for always being prepared on trips and from my paintball skills. Same username I use on various car and target shooting forums. Keeps things simple and my memory space open

Thanks for the welcomes!
