The Team

I don't think that a lot of people understand what it is that we are trying to do.  I also don't think that a lot of people like their spouses, at least not enough to be stuck in a small space for a long time with them.  The most common statement I get when I talk to people about our upcoming adventurer is "I hope you like your wife!" (actually, that is statement number 2.  Statement number 1 is "watch out for pirates", but I digress).   The truth is, I do like my wife.  We are pretty great together.  We make a great team.  We both have an adventurous spirit and appreciate the thought of real freedom.  So this post is about the Team.  I like to refer to us as the "A" team.  Not the A-team from the 80's TV show that I used to love as a kid, but the A-team, as in first string, the all star team, the best, the team you want when the going gets get the picture.  (The A-team from the TV show isn't as good as I remembered it

Q and A

Only 4 weeks left....WOOOO HOOOO!!!!  Anyway, I have been getting tons and tons of questions about everything imaginable.  I am hoping this will help answer some of those questions.  They are in no particular order but some of these crack me up. So lets get started: Have you ever sailed before? Yes.  Quite a bit actually.  What about pirates? Pirates are real and scary and also pretty well documented on where they are at.  We are going to avoid the places with pirates.  Its a pretty simple plan.  What are you going to do for food?  Luckily for us, wherever people are at, there is generally food.  We can carry a few months worth of food on the boat when we are away from civilization and when we are anywhere with people, we will eat what the locals eat.  That's part of the adventure. What about drinking water? We have a water-maker on the boat which turns the sea water into crystal clear pure drinking water.  Its pretty amazing! Will you catch fish for food?
