John...I hope you will track your expenses once you leave and maybe report on them on a monthly basis. It will either give others hope or prove it can't be done that cheaply anymore. I think there are still places you could live aboard for that amount but I don't think it is possible to make the north/south trek & back each year and do it. I do wish you good luck with it however!

With two small kids and one big mortgage I am definitely on a shoestring.

Camaraderie....I spent a lot of time thinking about what it would take. Northern Indiana in the winter, there isn't much else to do . It's basically a budget of $100 a week. Considering one week out of two I should be spending nothing, that leaves me with a hundred for a night in a marina, gas and propane, then around $50-$75 for food, with a bit left for fun money. With any luck, as time goes by, I'll be able to spend less as I figure out better ways to do things. There's nothing like not wanting to work to add a sense of discipline to one's spending habits!

As they say though..."the best laid plans...", so I'll just have to see how it goes. But I think I can manage.
