Who hasn't daydreamed about chucking it all and sailing away on a boat to warmer climes, “far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife.” John and Jane did just that. This sailing adventure began as an idea and unfolded into a rich and fulfilling dream come true. A lifelong obsession of escape materialized in 1972 with the building and launching of Dursmirg. John and Jane went over the horizon. Departing Duluth-Superior on the western terminus of the St. Lawrence, they crossed the Great Lakes, the Erie Canal and Hudson River to New York City. It was an enchanting journey, and in more than one place they felt tempted to stay. But there was always the thought of Florida driving them on. Arriving in a fairyland, destiny planted them in St. Augustine. The book is recommended for all free spirited dreamers that have the drive and desire to live life to the fullest.
