In early spring of 2007 I decided to quit my job, sell my house along with nearly everything else that I owned, and to live out of my car while traveling the country. These are my stories (and pictures) of life on the road.

The good life

Yesterday we met up with Steve's sister and her husband who have a 50ft. yacht in Vancouver, BC for a day out on the water. The sun was shining, the wind was calm, and the temperature was warm; a perfect day to be out on the water. We boated around some inlets that made you feel like you were in the middle of nowhere and we also boated right down to the waterfront in Vancouver where we anchored to eat a nice dinner before pulling up anchor and motoring back to the boat house into a beautiful sunset.

The shoreline around the city is gorgeous and even the high rise apartment buildings look particularly nice along the waterfront. We saw our fill of lighthouses and even got to see some seals out swimming around in the water. All in all it was just a perfect day and I couldn't have been happier out there. I don't ever want to have a real job again, I'm having too much fun doing this!

Many thanks to Trace and Leslie for giving me one of the best experiences I've had since I left on my trip.

I edited some of the pictures from the day real quick and you can see them in this Flickr set

Wow, Al - that looks like the perfect day. I want to come now! It's hot and humid here today.

Those large yachts are unbelievable. I still miss the one we had in Brazil.

You've reached the end of the page but that's not the end of the stories. If you want to read more (and who wouldn't!?) then click on the archive links to the right hand side of the page. They're listed by month; the adventure starts in May.

The February archives aren't actually from this trip but are previous adventures I've had, which are worth reading as well.
