I know the board is fairly dead, but I just found it, so I thought I should at least post a hello :)

Not all that long ago, while sailing on my father-in-law's boat, he mentioned something about living aboard and sailing around the world. I said that sounded like fun, and my wife said "yeah, it does".

So, I went gung-ho into the research, and our current "plan" is to retire in around 11 years (we're both 29 right now), and head out onto a sail boat. We're not experienced sailors (I've been sailing before, but certainly not much time logged), but we figure anything is possible if you've decided to do it.

That's our story, and my hello :)
