After 2 years of dreaming and 1 year of waiting we finally feel like we are on our way to being cruisers. We have booked flights down to Florida to check out several promising boats. Looking at boats with your checkbook in hand means the countdown is on. We have about 3-4 months to locate our new "Wrinkles" and make arrangements for a slip in the Orange Beach area. If we do find the right boat it will allow us to concentrate on purchasing needed equipment, repairs/upgrades, insurance pricing, slip rental and any needed marina services without being on a tight deadline.
We are finally allowing ourselves to be excited knowing that we will be able to follow our dream. We have held back our excitement for so long worrying that this opportunity would pass us by. Now we know we are going and it feels great!
