I have a lot of friends that would love to be out here and look back on poor decisions earlier in life. Fancy cars, big houses, college debt, credit cards. The reasons are endless. I personally feel that people bought way more than their means. Young people were capable of getting loans much greater than they could ever afford. To each their own.
Wouldn't it be nice if all a 20-something had to do was forego the fancy car and big house in order to go cruise the world? Nice blog, by the way. Sure looks like you have significant outside financial assistance. A ~$100k boat, a $500+/month "partying" budget. And looks like you haven't really left the eastern coastal waters.
