You know how frustrating it is to read something that really resonates and then not be able to find it again? That happened to me recently.
I read a very inspiring blog post about the reduction of stress when the author lowered her expectations about finding the perfect Loop boat. At least, that is how I remembered it. But I COULD NOT find it to verify. I literally spent four hours of my Christmas vacation going through Facebook and various Looper blogs looking for it.
It was a timely article. We are just about at the point where if a perfect boat came along, we would consider pursuing it. They say it takes up to two years to find THE boat, so we are almost at the beginning of the serious search. I knew I needed to find that article!
Sam and Rev Crouse created What Yacht To Do to show how you can be sitting in your living room one day and then living on the water the next.
(You have to say “What Yacht To Do” with a Texas accent to get the full effect…“What ya ought to do”.)
The Crouses are, at this writing, about three months into their loop. They have a series of entertaining blogs and YouTube videos to document the trip, both the ups and the downs.
Is there any looper out there who has not read at least some of Captain John’s many Great Loop webpages?
He has had a website almost as long as there has been an internet!
His first loop was in 1971. He’s owned boats his entire adult life.
Captain John has been looping and living on a boat since he retired in 1995. With 10+ loops under his belt, he has plenty of opinions and views on various aspects of cruising the Great Loop, including the financial aspect.
