I was reading a recent blog posting from a couple from Michigan that I love to follow, Matt & Jessica. They were doing a self interview for the Newly Salted blog which is part of the Interview with a Cruiser Project.
This lead me to read through a few of the other posts on the Newly Salted blog. It seems like the majority of the younger (selfishly classifying this as under 45 so that we still count as younger cruisers when we head out in 1 year and 8 months) are on the West Coast. Most of them seem to be concentrated around Mexico or the San Juan Islands. It surprises me that I don’t find more younger cruisers doing the East Coast, Chesapeake Bay, the Bahamas and the Caribbean.
I wonder if this is a reality or just my perception. It could be that more people on the West Coast are blogging about it thus I find more blogs. Or it could be that the cruising grounds on the East Coast are more expensive so younger cruisers tend to avoid those areas more.
Makes me curious as to what we will find when we get out there.
