Back at the financial side of things, though this is only a two week sample, my living costs where $79.00 for thre nights at marinas, $45.00 for diesel, and $10.00 for supplies I replaced. This was with motoring everyday, all day, and staying at marinas for lack of an anchorage on the ditch.

I expect my marina and fuel costs to go down, and my supply costs to go up, once I get to Florida. Even so, they were still well within my planned budget of $500.00 a month. I did though, have extrodinary expenses of almost $900.00 of which $600.00 would have been unnecessary except for my overlooking I had not joined a tow service before leaving.

Just a small snapshot, but I believe it will pretty well hold when I'm out for longer periods of time.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
