You have to be kidding....Now I am off the boat, I realise that I never missed the shallow mindless ratrace.

On the boat, we have all I /we need including hot water, can come ashore to buy fresh fruit etc.

Actually the lack of internet, TV and mobile phone connection made life better.
Go cruising and get away from all the stuff [and people] that you dont need, [it is only there to shorten your life, add stress and cost you money.]

CaptainForce will become famous soon enough
Sure, I miss some things about when I used to live on land. Gas sold for 36 cents/gallon. Janis Joplin was singing about her & Bobby McGee and Elvis was still alive too. Nixon was President, Spiro Agnew was VP and neither of them had yet been shamed by scandal. The average house on land sold for less than $6,000 and the transient slip rate was 5 to 10 cents/foot. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

1st sailing class is history now, and a guy from the class said I could go sailing with him. It's just a babystep - but on my way. I hope to be missing things from land someday!!

Haha, tomperanteau! I'm wondering how many chances you get...

CaptainForce, sounds like you're missing another time, not another place. Seems like everything was better back then? I have to say, I wouldn't trade my iPod back for a big case of CD's, though. And as rewarding as it is to navigate without it, I love my GPS.

I was just having fun with the thoughts, and no, it wasn't "better" back then! I have great use for all the technological advances and, despite the rates, I was much poorer then. By the way, it would take a three peice set of Samsonite to hold the 8-track tapes to match the "big case of CDs" and a Winnebago to carry the 8-tracks to match the music in your iPod! I don't miss the Samsonite and the Winnebagos either! I went with the nostalgia thoughts because there is actually nothing that I can think of that I missed by never owning a house! Take care and joy, Aythya crew
