In Bill's post "Goal, Strategy and Tactics," he list our strategies to help us reach our goal of "Explore the world as a family full time indefinitely leaving as early as 2012." The second strategy is to live self-sufficiently.
Lots of things come to mind when you think about living self-sufficiently: sailing skills, culinary skills, sail making, sewing, first-aid, fishing, electrical system repairs, mechanical system repairs, boat repairs, home schooling, navigation skills, and the list goes on and on.
In the coming months, I will be focusing on developing our self-sufficiency skill sets and will discuss our progress, successes, and set-backs.
Enjoy! Suggestions and feedback are welcomed.
