Living aboard has let me semi retire in my mid 20's, working a month a year on average since then. Depressing? No way! I couldn't imagine having to sell so much of my life as "Consumerism" (Squanderism) requires.In the mornings , I turn on the traffic report, to hear how those "lucky" folks are doing, to pay for the Porsche they bought to "Impress" us with, cut a fart in their honour, then go back to sleep for as long as I please.
They work an entire year to spend a couple of weeks doing what I do year round. Living that way? Now that I would find depressing!
