Thank You!


We marked a big milestone this week on our Facebook page - over 1,000 likes! Who would have thought so many people would be interested in what we get up to? Not us, that's for sure.

When we started this blog, the intent was to document our crazy journey to quit the rat race, get rid of most of our stuff and lead a life a bit less normal on a sailboat. We did it primarily for ourselves - to capture our adventures so that we would have something to look back on one day when our memories aren't as sharp - as well as to keep our families in the loop.

But, somehow, along the way, all of you joined us for our journey. And, it's been all the more fun because of it! We've loved getting to know so many of you virtually and having the good fortune to even meet some of you in real life too.

It seemed like a good time to say thank you to all of you for following along with us - so, thank you! We're so very glad to have you along for the ride.

    1. Thanks Liesbet! To be honest, I'm not sure how it happened, but it did take time. Yours will get there too.

  4. Your posts are so enjoyable. I love how you engage the reader with a question, and you always leave a reply comment! Having you post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday is awesome, and something I aspire to. I have been lazy, and let Bill do all of the technical posts, and then I don't post the fun stuff.

    Thank you for taking the time to entertain and enlighten us. I'm so glad I "met" you. :-)

    1. I'm not sure we're successful, but we're having fun. As long as you're having fun with your blog, that's what really matters :-)

      BTW, I met some cruising buddies of yours and they said you had been at Indiantown recently. Sorry we missed each other - it would have been fun to meet you guys.

We'd LOVE to hear from you! If we're out on the water cruising, our internet access will be limited and it may take a while before we're able to respond to your comments and pay a return visit to your blog, but please know that we will once we can get connected.
