I'm certain that "less encumbered" is the way to go, and there are some great spots on the east coast to spend a few months every year, in between work commitments.
I've no problem with downsizing, and currently regard most of my possessions as very disposable (house included).
Ha - i remember a time when everything I owned would fit in my car, and i just drove from state to state, finding jobs and places to live....it was so simple then

Hey, look, another Aussie here. Not that I am one, but there are a few others here.
One of our clients is an Aussie, and she has been a very nice person to deal with, so I have a lot of respect for Aussies.
Come to think of it the man that bought our last boat was from New Zealand. Told us that the sailboats you could buy on the west coast here would sell for a LOT more there.
Anyway, nice to meet you and I look forward to chatting with you here and there.

I lived in Oz for a while and built the Noosa Heads Sheraton, and a couple of resorts up in Port Douglas. Taught myself to windsurf on Lake Cootharaba. You guys have had a rough year! Have you dried out yet? Ironically, I also spent time in Christchurch NZ, but lets not even go there! Anyway, my boat is currently in Brisbane California (pronounced with a hard A), just South of San Francisco. Welcome! I hope you find the SN forum as useful as I have.
