Canned hamburger is great.
I love canned venison, as have any crew I have had,it's my staple, and beef when I can get it. I can all my venison in apple juice.
The French, who like their meat raw, slightly warmed on the outside, have 30 times the food poisoning rate of the rest of the world!

So like I said, voyage of choice. You must have worked hard not to hit Hawaii.
I got homesick,the best solution for that is to go home, any way you can. I guess that is the cost of being from paradise.
In July there are lots of SE trades, even southerlies in April it is all Northeast. Didn't feel like waiting that long. I passed just east of Necker, and didn't consider Hawaii ( US waters) worth the stop.

Most of us are...

It's the gilded cage we build for ourselves. It's the seduction of our comfortable and directed lives. It is the path that is laid out for most people in our rich western societies.

Song Lyrics to Little Boxes, by Malvina Reynolds

It's hard to stray off the path ... why would we? It's comfortable and safe. Perhaps it doesn't live up to my dreams of youth, but those are silly childish fancies. Best to keep my nose to the grindstone, and keep building up that portfolio for that nirvana called retirement.

... Except by the time retirement rolls around too many of us have forgotten how to be free.

Once In A Lifetime Lyrics - Talking Heads

OK, I'll stop drinking now, and go to bed .

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

To back to the original poster. NO MAN YOU ARE NOT CRAZY OR ALONE. Everything is life is a compromise. For example someone who "can not live" without heating or going to restaurants, has to work more to make the money. Most of us, work for someone else. In my opinion what u do is this. You take a paper and you divide it into two sections. One the left are "Things I like" and on the right "Things I need"Every time you want to buy something see where it fits before you buy. For example. Do I like to have a cellphone or do I need it?? For me the answer was I like it but i dont need in order to make a living. So I dont have it anymore. Do i like or need a car loan? The answer is i like so i am not buying a new one. Do i like or need cable? Neither. If someone thinks I am suffering because I don't have cellphone or Cable is making a big mistakes. Do I enjoy restaurants? Not really. The food in restaurants is 99% below average. Most of you don't understand it i guess but if you were brought up in Europe I am sure you are cooking at home.

Having said all this. If you are a minimalist that likes to have a minimum impact then it is good for you this life. If not you need the money. Neither way is bad. Personally i admire the dude with the dog. I don't know if i could go the full length, but for sure i like to work so i can live and not to live to work.

I dont know who lives longer the guy that works for someone else or the guy that won't. I know that probably it looks a hell of a longer life to the first guy though.

Welcome to the discussion Kostis. You've hit on one of the key points in the pursuit of a modest cruising lifestyle. You've got to understand your Wants vs your Needs.
