We're landlubbers "on the dirt"...............

Tide Hiker has sold!   A thorough cleaning and minor fixing, an extensive marketing campaign (including a comprehensive on-line description) coupled with unending time commitments to telephone and email inquiries and personal tours paid off.   We had many inquiries from serious potential buyers who saw the Tide Hiker ads on one or more internet sites we used. A very nice retired couple from Arizona has purchased Tide Hiker and plan to live aboard and cruise full time, just like we did.  And, they kept the name.  So, "Tide Hiker" lives on.

As a result, this will be our last Trekking with Tide Hiker blog.  We want to thank all of you who have remained avid readers.  We have enjoyed blogging our adventure and responding to your many calls, notes and emails.  It's been a wonderful five-year adventure and we're happy to have brought this virtual trek to you.

Us?  We will make way for St Petersburg, FL and begin the next chapter of our lives there.  We'll get a rental unit temporarily until the right condo becomes available.  Wish us luck!!  


  1. Good luck and we will miss you on the water. Many great memories cruising with you. See you in St. Pete.
