I went to a pulmonary doctor a couple days ago, and just the tests he conducted on my lungs cost a little over $3,000 and only took 30 minutes to complete. And, a medication he gave me samples of cost $300 for a 20-day supply.

Gary, hope you're doing ok. Am still counting on raising a pint or two with you in a few years.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

[QUOTE=ScottUK
As the title of this thread suggests you can go with as little as $500 but is that voyaging? To me, that budget is more in regards to survival than voyaging. When I leave, and it will be fairly soon, I want to experience the destinations I travel to so it is going to cost more money.[/QUOTE]

Well that's the same thing you read from a lot of people. $500 isn't enough, that's survival. They're going to do it on more and really see things. Of course the people that usually say this finish with:

WHEN I leave.

The people spending $500 a month already left.

True, "...nothing pays 8%..." if it were that easy, we'd all be sailing....

I use a combination of investments which are for specific goals.
Food, and essentials; lowest risk.
Entertainment; higher risks.
It can be done and it is "active", requiring a monthly review and constant awareness.
The Net and Markets are both Interests of mine and are included in cruising plans.
Fortunately, its easier to find free WiFI spots nowadays in Mexico and other areas than in the US. It may have something to do with not everyone having internet to every house, and a less-fierce charge-everybody-for-everything culture

You are correct (and professional) to caution the readers on returns.
A Cruising group of investments do NOT try to get rich, or even "make money" in the traditional sense; simply keep some cash flowing in and preserve Principal.
The eight works for me as a target, and usually leaves a bit left over at the end of the year.

Cheers,
