Transportation for the Elderly

Hi. My name’s Betty. I’m sixty-two years old and live with my husband, Matt. My mother lives on our property, but at age ninety-one still insists on living alone. Mom has a good mind and for her age does well physically. She drove up until four years ago when we all decided it would be best for her to not be behind the wheel. It’s worked out well with her living on our property. Matt or I would take her places. We made sure she had groceries, made it to doctors appointments, and to her social engagements. About six months ago, however, Matt fell ill and our lives changed. I am his full-time caregiver, and Matt can no longer drive. I had to find help for my Mom which was difficult to do. I am going to share what I found and hope it helps you should you ever need transportation.

Reasons To Arrange A Fishing Charter That Uses Your Own Boat

For many people, the idea of booking a fishing charter means showing up at a specific marina, loading your gear onto a boat, and then hitting the water in search of the catch. While this type of fishing charter is certainly common among companies like High Tide Charter & Guide, it's not the only way to go about booking a fishing outing. There are many fishing charter providers that will actually drive your boat for you. At first, this idea might seem a little unconventional, especially if you like the idea of fishing from a professional-caliber vessel. However, there are lots of reasons that this idea can make sense. Here are some reasons to arrange this type of charter. 

It's Less Effort For You

If you're someone who keeps the bulk of his or her fishing gear on his or her own boat, it may be a bit of a hassle to load up everything that you expect to need for your fishing outing, transport it to the local marina, and then load all of it on the charter vessel. And, of course, you'll need to reverse these steps at the end of the day. It can be far simpler and easier to have the fishing professional come to your boat, as you'll already have all of your gear at hand and ready to use on the water. 

You'll Gain Navigation Tips

When a professional takes the controls of your boat in an area that you commonly fish, you'll get a front-row seat to how an experienced angler approaches the situation. You might have several years of fishing experience, but this doesn't mean that you're going about fishing the right way. A professional's insight will help you to not only use your boat better, but also find the right spots in the water to fish. It can be highly illuminating to watch a professional at the helm of your boat and giving you instructions on how to fish your water. 

You'll Feel More At Ease

Avid fishing enthusiasts often feel at ease on their own boats, and while the idea of taking a fishing charter on a different boat may sometimes be appealing, there may be nothing like casting a line from your own vessel. If you're someone who feels most at home in this environment, contact a local fishing charter to inquire about a charter leader meeting you where you dock your boat and leading the charter from there.
