Book Review: Voyaging with Kids - A Guide to Family Life Afloat (with Video)

We want to do more video. We want to do more book reviews. So why not video of a book review? Makes sense to us.

A primary goal of DitchingSuburbia is to build a community of like-minded people - but who might have chosen different means to achieve their goals.
