Time for a New Blog Name?

Hello folks,

This chronicle of written life events is about to take on a major transformation.  We are no longer 5 kids and a boat.  We will be traveling by land on wheels, and there will not/should not, be 5 kids aboard.  Some should be college-bound.  I am excited about what is to come.  I won’t need a captain for every move I make and I will not be learning to operate a 63′ yacht.  I already know how to drive, all I have to master is how to navigate 50′ of vehicle.  I’m certainly not going to underestimate the complexity.  I know it will be no easy feat, but will pale in comparison to running a small ship.

I’ve been thinking lately as I will soon start counting down to take off.  This school year is almost finished.  I have next school year, and then, the 12 months following, I will make my purchases.  There will be a lot of shopping around to be done and I want to give myself plenty of time to make the right choices and get both of my new vehicles (new-to-me-vehicles) ready to hit the road.  I like to view time in terms of months, rather than years when I’m ready to go but forced to be patient, because the wait seems more palatable in months.  If all stays well, then my 24 month count down to the next chapter will start this summer 🙂

But, what about the blog name?  Seems we may need a new name… and… possibly a new web address.  Any ideas?


What do you think of a new name? Any thoughts? Love your feedback.  Leave a comment and your 2 cents.

  1. The family road warriors in about 24 months. Have you decided motorhome, trailer, or 5th wheel? I’ve moved since the last time I left a message. I live in SW New Mexico at 1st Aero Squadron Air Park Estates with my plane. Very nice having a hangar at my home and 1000′ from the active runway.


  2. After all that…. you are done with the boat and going to do a land cruiser thing?… Boats are not for everyone for sure…. and it’s good to recognize what works for you and what doesn’t. But this comes as a surprise. I had expected to read of your exploits and ventures on Cruisers Forum?

    I am curious to learn what informed your decision to give up the boat… it that is what you are doing… Is it sold or for sale or just being stored for when you want to do the boat thing?

    Good luck to you and your beautiful family.

    • Hey Jeff!
      I gave up the boat because at that time I had to get to a better climate in general. California had been calling me for years, so it was something I had to do, just as the boat was something I had to do. The way I see it life is fluid. I can do one thing now, something else tomorrow and then change directions altogether the next day. I thought it might be fun to try an “rv” thing for a bit and check out the interior. I also want to do some air travel and may even go back to a boat again in the future, who knows?
      I sold the boat about 3 months after I listed it. That was about a year and a half ago. Boy time flies!
      Thanks for the well wishes.

  3. I think you did an amazing job on your Hatteras? Up to date but still classic. Why did you decide not to move the boat to warmer climates, like Florida or North Carolina?

    • Hello!
      Thank you for the nice compliment. I had fun doing it. It’s hard to explain why I went to California, but it has always been calling me. Plus, I like to visit the southern East Coast, but couldn’t live there.
