|Midnightflyer||Well, I finished reading Nick O'Kelly's book "Get Her On Board" in two sittings. This should be required reading for all married men young and old. Sometimes( After 25 years ) we tend to take the other half for granted when we plan something like a cruising lifestyle. She wants to go, but not for ever. Nor do I. We are looking to go for a year or two then return to living on "dirt" sometime later. Works for me. Bob|

Gary - we're having a wonderful time here, but the sailing/gunkholing in the Chesapeake is infinitely better. Plus, there's this thing about hurricanes ... having weathered two aboard, I have no wish for a third. Being outside the "box" makes our insurance company happier, too.
We're still wrapping our minds around the fact that the oncologist is giving us a longer leash, which will increase our cruising area. Originally there were appts, scans, and tests every 3 months; then every 6 months. Now they only need to see Dan once a year, so many more things are possible for us.

Are you really going to leave the land of palm trees, turquoise waters, wonderful breezes and fantastic snorkeling to return to Annapolis? If everything goes as planned, I hope to voyage south to Marathon Key for the 2012/13 winter, and I can assure you that I'll have a difficult time leaving to return to the Chesapeake's upper reaches.

|wingNwing||Midnight, you're on - looking forward to talking with you both in the Chesapeake next summer. At the same time, your plan confuses me. You said your current boat is not the one you're taking to the Keys. So, what boat are you taking to Annapolis? Why not buy your next boat *in* Annapolis and start your trip there? Tons of choices in the Chesapeake - and save yourself that (admittedly beautiful, but long) solo voyage from the Great Lakes?|

WingNwing, I would love to have Ruth talk to someone that has taken the plunge. We spoke to a couple while standing in line as we drooled over one of the boats at the Annapolis Boat Show. She said that she never wanted to go back to "Living on the dirt" and was happy moving every six months or so, seeing new places and new people. That's for me! New places and new things to try. I would be content to follow the warm weather south and return to the north for our summer.
Bob and Ruth
