Came across THE BEST comeback to sailing dream crushers that I had to turn the quote into a comic.
I was snooping around my favourite author, Torre DeRoche's blog, (if you haven't read Love With a Chance of Drowning you have to order a copy, then get some adult diapers as you will probably pee yourself a little from laughing your ass off).
Um, so the comeback... I found a comment on Torre's post: When people don't support your dreams. It was posted by Tucker Bradford, a friend of mine who has almost finished a sailing circumnavigation around the world with his young family. Here is the original comeback quote via Tucker's blog ForgeOver.com.
Memorise, so when someone attempts to stomp on your sailing/ cruising dream, this should get them thinking.
