A little while back I ran across a blog that had a very similar story to ours. A couple with no sailing experience that heads off cruising. Sound familiar?
I've been going through this blog "from the beginning" and have finally caught up with the current postings. Thus far it has to be one of the best sites I've found for both information and inspiration related to our plans. As of today their site states they have been cruising for 718 days and they make posts just about every day (where do they find the time?).
So, if you have some time, check out Mike and Rebecca's story on Zero To Cruising. And for those that think my wife and I are crazy...we are definitely not alone.
