Sounds like y'all have it going on. But, quit fixing stuff and get going. Trust me, you'll never have every single thing fixed.

I'm 56 and my biggest regret in life is that I didn't do what you are doing right now when I was younger.

I'm pretty jealous.

Get going and fix things on the road. That way, you get to learn what you really need to fix and upgrade. Nothing worse than spending money to upgrade something, that you later find out you don't use at all, when you have found something you wish you had that money to use for.

Peoples biggest mistake is doing too much refitting. It takes people years and they never finally leave.

Its important to actually GO.

You can always do work on the way in the Caribbean in places like St Martin and Grenada. Particularly Grenada when you are stuck there for a hurricane season.

Great blog!

Re: My New Cruising Blog

Thanks, guys. This will be a dream come true. It's amazing how much work is really involved in something like this. The planning; the saving; the projects; the selling, etc. But I'm sure the payoff will be sweet!

Re: My New Cruising Blog

Good looking blog. I can't wait to see you get started on your cruise!

I went on an extended cruise 2009-2010. I didn't want to come back and all I do is save and plan for the next one. Have fun!
