So, rumor has it, if we can cruise 24/7 for more than one full year, we'll be among those people who end up cruising for a really long time.
I don't know about that...there's a lot to be said for a land-based existence...but we started short-time cruising in the PacNW and BC in 1998; then sold everything, quit the jobs and left Seattle on this here date in 2007.
So it's been 24/7 cruising for a full two years now. Well past the bail-out date. Three countries, slowly. If your personality is suited to it, the living out here is FINE.
