Do you enjoy or seek the freedom of the sky and sea? These are my two favorite playgrounds and I am looking to combine them. My favorite vacation is to bareboat chartering in the British Virgin Islands. The term bareboat is misleading if you are not familiar. These are sailboats which are fully stocked with everything needed for a week of casual cruising right down to the snorkeling gear. The "bare" means there is no crew. The boat is yours to sail if you are qualified. The destinations, routes and methods are completely up to you. It is a great deal of fun to sail for a few hours to a quiet anchorage and enjoy the beauty of the clear, blue water before roasting up dinner. The stars are quite bright in the evenings. A glass of wine on deck can be very peaceful and will recharge you.
I live in a fly in community. A couple of times a month I will fly to another state for either a breakfast or lunch. There is a little mountaintop airport which is a great picnic spot. Sometimes these trips are just one plane but other times a little formation with friends.
I like to design, build and repair things. I try to be self reliant but the fact of the matter is I just enjoy working with my hands and mind to see if I can make something better than it was.
