We’ve got this!

We are closing in on our first month of cruising on our 42’ Litton Trawler. Pelican. We left from Destin on March 30th and are presently in Fort Pierce Fl. Each day it gets better than the last. All of the things we feared the most are now pretty laughable. If you are trying to finish up your preparation for this lifestyle just know this, you never will. Things will keep delaying you if you allow them to. You can follow our adventures at saltyatsixty.com.
Lee and Mike (Mac)

Welcome.

I was going to say "never too late," but as we all know too well it can be.

Enjoy!
