Hello from Tucson

Hello everyone. Just wanted to say good day and thanks for all the info here. Im getting ready within the year to give up land and start my new life on the water. Im 42 single and sick of all the bureaucracies of this modern carnival we have today. I will be looking forward to info you all share . I have lots of sailing experience but never had my own sailboat, Im thinking of a Morgan Or Pearson as i will be doing much cruising from the West coast . Thanks Jeff

Welcome aboard, Jeff. Life on the water will be quite a change from Tucson. I just returned to Alabama after spending most of the winter skiing in Flagstaff. Loved it! Arizona is just beautiful. But Flagstaff is quite a different climate from Tucson, I'm sure.

Hope you don't expect to escape the bureaucratic carnival completely. It follows us everywhere, I'm afraid. But at least we experience some degree of freedom while under sail.

Enjoy the Net. Lots of good folks here.

Pat

Sailing isn't a matter of life and death. It's much more important than that!

If you wait long enough, you may have some shore-front property where you live.
