July through August
*Making the decision to try out Boat Life, plus the processes of buying a boat, all of the emotional thoughts AND Patrick’s back story.
The Story: Then it was Patrick’s turn, to tell his story (you’ll want to read this… he’s an amazing writer!) and how this whole dream came to be in the first place.
**Coming Soon! (Everyone post on our Facebook Page and ask Patrick to finish the story!!! Maybe he’ll listen to you! 🙂
The Technical Stuff
Whilst getting the survey done… we found our 1st Problem
Plans aka When it All Goes Tits Up (my husband can be so eloquent!)
Right before we decided to leave on this boating adventure, we had opened a business. We got a lot of questions of, “What About the Business”
Once I’d agreed on trying out the whole crazy living on a boat idea, Patrick had found a boat that he wanted to look at. Since the boat was in Florida, Patrick flew out and took a video tour to show us back home. That way we could at least see the boat in some way to make our choice.
And just like that, we were in the process of buying a boat. I had more than a few doubts and fears that I wrote about in Boat Owner? WHAT? It certainly didn’t help at all when the lovely Perimenopause and Hot Flashes started before we even left!
I really wanted to write down some things just to have them to compare… like how I THOUGHT the boat experience would be, before I really had a clue, so I could go back later and see how far off I was. In that vein, I wrote 10 Things I’ll Miss About Land Living and 10 Things I WON’T Miss About Land Living.
We brought along 4 teens. I had them write a post and did a little impromptu interview covering their thoughts before we left for the boat.
**Here’s where we keep all of our “10 Things” posts.
