The 364 days mentioned below has now turned into 360 and there seems like soooo much to do. It's a little scary actually. Ok, not a little but a lot! We have however taken the following steps to lead us towards our goal: We have begun to curb our spending, cutting out unnecessary luxuries. An example of this is satellite TV. It is now gone. We created an auto-transfer of an equal amount of funds (to our TV bill) into…

Our house now has a couple of new piles of "stuff." We spent today sorting through our possessions for things that we will need to sell before adopting a water-based lifestyle. It's a pretty big pile! A much smaller pile has started to form which includes things that we can keep. I guarantee the first pile will continue to increase in size (at least until we actually sell these things). We met with our accountant yesterday to discuss our exit…

Plans are now progressing on all fronts:) The "learning to sale" issue is, as previously mentioned, the least of our concerns. We are investing a fair amount of time reading sailing theory.

I have been captivated by their Blog which is detailing their trip and am truly inspired. Check it out: TheSlapDash.com
