We have dissolved all of our real estate holdings, getting ready to move closer to the marina probably in a condo and go down to one car.

At some point your going to regret waiting to do the things that you love. I have friends that are always waiting,putting things off, as if they are going to live forever. My father is 80 years old and he still puts things off, as if he will be around 100 years from now. I just dont get it , or understand that type of thinking. I know I am very impulsive. In fact I recently purchased a Trawler project that most men would cringe over. I dont see it that way. Even if I never get it right, or make it look the way most people should think it should look, I always see the inner beauty of what it is, and what I can do with it. For me its therapy, nothing more nothing less.II also have the added luxury to have my boat in my back yard, that goes a long way, and Im also self employed. So I planned my life for this, and will NEVER work for someone else again, EVER!!! good luck
Amen Brother!

If a nice balance can be struck...the best of both worlds is great.

I'm soon going to find out and am a little apprehensive.
