Welcome to our journey of moving a family of five onto a sailboat.  Around mid 2016 we agreed after the military, we would spend at least 1 to 2 years living on a sailing catamaran.  Aric retired from the Navy in December, and as of May 2019, we have sold off most our possessions, moved into the fifth wheel full time, and spent the 2019 school year in the Florida Keys, letting the kids finish one last year of public school.


June 1st we set off on an around the country tour in the fifth, we’ll go where the wind takes us, but in general we’re making a clockwise trip around.  Starting in Florida, head towards Cali, then up towards Washington state, and then zigzagging East towards Maine.
