One half of a couple looking for “Bluewater” experience

Hello, my name is Phillip. I am in my upper 20’s and hoping to gain some sailing experience to prepare for future cruising with my girlfriend of 5 years and our dog. We are both college graduates but work in unrelated fields in Boise, Idaho. I am a Wildland Firefighter with the US Forest Service, and my girlfriend manages/serves at a Restaurant. We have a 60 pound Golden Retriever. I have plans to save up enough to purchase a 30-36 foot boat that we can safely sail for a year, within the next few years. So I would like to get some experience sailing. My job allows me ample time off between October and March. The training during that time would just be me, unfortunately. But in the fall of 2021, we may be looking for somebody who would put up with us as a couple, as well as be ok with the dog. For that Fall of 2021 sail, we would be looking to go for 3-12 months. We are clean, respectful people, who enjoy a glass or two of wine and a cold beer, when appropriate. Caine, our dog is very good with people and is a retriever at her core. She loves to swim and play fetch. She tends to be a little crazy the first ten minutes of meeting somebody, but will settle down after that. I am in good shape, due to my career, so I could be of good use to a skipper willing to teach. My hobbies include hiking/backpacking, mountain biking, dirt biking, trail running, flying (I almost have my private pilot rating), and anything else outdoors. I catch on to operating new machines or vehicles quickly, so I hope that translates to boats.
