Well, this isn’t my ad [yet], but in the not-too-distant future, I’ll be overwhelmed with joy to make my own “Sailboat Sale!” ad.
Amy sent the link to me the other day and said she thought of us doing this when the time comes…and I couldn’t agree more. I almost responded to the ad just to go out and meet the lucky people who are shedding their dirt-dwelling and moving onto a sailboat. In fact, I might still do that. I’m sure they’ve done their research and planning already and would probably be a good source of advice and inspiration.
As mentioned in a recent post, Amy and I have spent the last few weeks doing our own downsizing. We sold literally a ton of stuff on craigslist, took a multitude of car-loads of donations to our favorite local resale shop. We’re finally moved and settling everything, but moving from a four bedroom house to a one bedroom apartment has been taxing…both physically and mentally. But, as Amy mentioned, it’s great preparation for the ultimate move onto our sailboat in a couple years.
Can’t wait to make my own Sailboat Sale ad, when we will finally rid ourselves of the dirt on our shoes and replace it with water under our boat and wind in our sails!
