Good article on simplifying and re-prioritizing your life.

This is great and is exactly working on myself, I have lived with my parents and decided to move out and become living much more simply, no tv,no unnecessary items, I still need my car though as I live in an area where everything is about 15 miles away no matter where you are. I do think if you get rid of all the junk adn negativity of the news in todays world happiness will be much easier to attain since you wont be constantly bombarded by bad news but instead you can spend more time maintaining your boat and living.

CaptainForce will become famous soon enough
I'm surprised to find, within the article, the thought that "baby boomers" are realizing the gains of a minimal life. I thought they were doing this forty years ago with the communes or at that time forty years ago when most people living on boats were in their twenties. It should not be a surprise now that most of the liveaboards are in their sixties. The last time we cruised the Chesapeke my wife met a couple preparing their boat for moving aboard and they asked her how we managed to give everything up and move to the small space. Nancie replied, " 'easy, we never had anything!" Take care and joy, Aythya crew
