"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

We have been having some reasonable success trading our stuff for cash. This is a good thing because I seldom see boats being traded for old furniture and appliances! But, as Murphy's Law would have it, we found out this morning that in order to fulfill the final condition of our house sale it is going to cost us at least a thousand bucks. Sigh! Oh well.

It was only 20 days later, on October 23rd that the revised departure date of November 2009 was entered into the journal. It's actually kind of fun looking back at the initial…

Nothing has to be forever to be worth doing!Number 4 in the top-10 list of questions we have been asked is "How long are you going to do this for?" How does one really answer a question like that? Forever is what I usually say, knowing of course that it won't really be the case. Unlike many others Rebecca and I have no 4-year plan to circumnavigate the globe and then move on the the next big thing (we think…
