Nick Heinemann, Marathon
"I made it to the Keys in August of 2015. Like many others down here, I decided to sell all that I owned. My decision to move to Marathon, was one of those where you just throw caution to the wind. I had no job to come to, no place to live, I knew no one and had $2500 in my pocket.
Being newly single, I decided it was worth the risk. After a 3 & 1/2 day drive from western Colorado, I found what I needed. The ocean. I purchased a sailboat and moved aboard it on my second day here. Living on the water ever since.
I have been fortunate enough, to do some truly amazing things in my life and through my own determination and efforts. I have seen parts of the world that others fear to tread or always dream of.
Always keeping in mind that being humble in your accomplishments, tends to bring more interest in you as a person.
The Keys are where I am supposed to be. Life is different here but in both a miraculous and good way. There is a peace here, unmatched by any other place on earth.
