I’ve been struck by this story of two people who lived in Colorado. They quit their jobs, sold all they had, and used that money to buy (and fix up) a boat. This was to pursue a dream of living at sea and sailing the Caribbean.
The dream was short-lived though, and on their second day at sea, the boat sank. They escaped the wreck with their lives, their dog, a cell phone, and $90 to their names.
