Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

This has been mentioned before, but I'll agree with you UnionPacific, it is hard to be a frugal cruiser in the USA. I'm not sure what Florida is doing, but your country's, shall we say unique approach to healthcare, the high cost of insurance b/c everyone sues everyone at the drop of a hat, not to mention that over-zealous nature of some of your law enforcement, have all convinced me to either bypass the east coast, or pass through as quickly as possible.

It's sad, b/c there is tremendous geography and human history that I would dearly love to spend time with. I love travelling in America. The people are like most people everywhere; warm, wonderful and welcoming. Ah well... It's a big world out there. Thankfully, there are lots of other places to explore.
