What is Miss Lone Star and what is it about?
As we all know that world is full of interesting places and we all surely want to experience them. Miss Lone Star is basically a family who have been cruising around the world and Miss Lone Star’s Travels is a blog featuring the travels of a family aboard their boat as they cruise the Caribbean. We had planned on traveling around the world while the kids are growing up. We could fill the children with amazing life experiences, create an environment for true family bonding, and at the same time feed our desire to see the entire world. Plus, living on your own boat is like living in your own country.
It is all about your rules, your way. Influences on our children will solely be of our choosing. There will be plenty of party times for the children after they’ve grown up. By living aboard the boat, and experiencing new people and cultures, the influences and values brainwashed into the masses will be significantly less upon our children. As noted already, living aboard the boat will also ensure lots of family time. There won’t be as many distractions. The family will have to work and live together to survive, in a confined space. While enjoying our trips we capture what we see and feel and we write about it to share our experiences and memories.
Our blog features most of our trips’ experiences, sometimes basic guidelines for your travel and also our daily life routine interactions. Another other aspect of the trip that falls within the ‘why’ question is about complexity. There is a lot of complexity that gets stacked on the modern life and we want to see it. The trip, the sailboat life, is about ultimate simplicity so the contrast with the modern life will be fairly stark allowing for easier complexity recognition. Of course, there are more reasons but these are key ones.
Each day is a new day, but in general the days are spent taking care of the boat, cleaning, exercising, playing, reading, thinking, meeting people, schoolwork, talking, exploring, sleeping, as well as playing board and card games. Various friends have noted that if they didn’t know us and saw this site, they would think we were crazy and ask what is this about? So, Miss Lone Star’s Travels is a blog featuring the travels of a family aboard their boat as they cruise the Caribbean. We are ordinary folks with a perspective on life that enables us to live it differently than most.
