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

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.

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)
