Re: Medical Insurance
Only a few places seem to require medical insurance. Chagos comes to mind. The requirement really is for evacuation insurance. I think Ascension has something similar but you can buy it locally by the day. I agree about having insurance for the US. Medical costs there are beyond belief.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Ainia is back in North America for the first time since 2010. Currently in Long Island Sound.
