Re: Bug out boat

While we don't keep it stocked for immediate long term departure, we have considered the fact that if everything really got bad, we could do just that. Things where "scary" financially a few years ago, right in the middle of the financial crash and it was comforting to know if everything really fell apart, we could live on the boat, here or elsewhere if we needed too, it's paid for, the house isn't. We plan to do that soon anyway, for a year or two while cruising. While we plan to have a good cruising kitty and such, it was nice to know we could just walk away from the house and sail off if we needed too.

Luckily, it didn't come to that. Or perhaps, unluckily as where still not cruising... I guess that depends on your view point...
