After the unfortunate events of Rebel Heart, much discussion about choices many us make to live a life aboard in various capacities. The judgement of people, often harsh at times, is unnecessary. I understand debating scenarios-we all do it. I just took offense as many of us did of people blindly judging decisions that we all make without know the amount of time, energy, education and thought we put into achieving these accomplishments. The choices we make to move aboard and sail away are not all whimsical. We have planned, strategies and over thought many aspects of our adventure. We have tried to account for as many issues and contingencies as possible. We have read, watched videos and discussed how we would handle various situations. We know that it is not the same as "doing. " This is just part of the prep.
We whole heartedly support Rebel Hearty and their crew. Every family, whether sailing or not, make choices that we hope are the right ones for our families. It might not be a choice that you would chose but that doesn't make it wrong.
