I want to know your story

Hi All,

I'm an avid sailor in the northeast and have also sailed all over the Caribbean. To date I have not had life align in a way that would allow more than a couple of weeks on the water. I want to hear how and why those of you who have managed to get off the grid have done it. Send me a quick note, give me a highlight and let me follow up for more of your story. I'm intensely interested and want to compile as many stories as I can. Where are you? What budget level? What made you go for it? Solo, couple, friends, family? I look forward to getting a taste of how you got to follow your gut.

Please get back to me,
Craig Miller of Mistral (my beautiful 32 Bristol sloop)

Craig,

I'd suggest you read some sailing blogs. There are thousands of them out there. Start with some searching around in: SailBlogs Recent Blog & Gallery Updates | Sailing Blog Hosting, Map Tracking & Social Network

Many millions of words of wisdom have already been written, and are awaiting your Google. If you're really bored, you can look it our blog and/or website, listed below in my signature.

Cheers,
Michael

Jerome FitzGerald's Sea-Steading: A Life of Hope and Freedom on the Last Viable Frontier addresses your questions in some nice detail. Available on Amazon.

Yeah, it's a bit like reading Thoreau's Walden, with a bit more practical advice than Thoreau originally dispensed.
