Enjoyed the blog, but the "scroll down" windows are kind of slow, not sure if it is your host or an issue with the coding. It would refresh too with the scrolling yin and yang symbol a lot on Firefox(at work) I just noticed it was slow at home on Chrome.
Thank you miatapaul for your contribution and you are right. I did a theme update and it has caused problems with Chrome and firefox. IE is fine and a lot faster. I am trying to resolve the conflicts as we speak.
Thank you though as any feedback really does help me try to improve things.

When people here learn they can customize that title, why is "village idiot" the most frequent choice?

Re: Practising to be a liveaboard

I'd say, get yerself a 10 foot dinghy, rig it simply. Spend a week sailing around and sleeping on the beach, eating whatever food you brought, and being cold and wet.
If after a week you think to yourself, "i hope this never ends" then go ahead and become a live aboard on a larger boat...
If however you cant wait for the week to end, so you can return to whatever existance you have on land, then dont bother. you'll just end up paying moorage on something that you dont really need.

Well thank you everyone for your suggestions.
I did manage to write something. Have a look and see if you agree or add a few more suggestions to it.
Thank you again.

Re: Practising to be a liveaboard

rent an efficiency apartment , pile your luggage inside the front door so you have to climb over it every time you enter or leave. Now cut the room in half so you'll have 3-400 square feet to use. Now pile everything you own into what's left of your space making sure whatever you need next will be on the bottom. Buy 3 or 4 humidifiers and run them constantly, oh and turn the ac to 50 deg. Arrange your bed so you have to climb in then turn around to sleep or turn around to get out of it. Hang a bunch of heavy objects just below head high and take half of the light bulbs out and throw them way.Cover the bottom half of your windows with tin foil so you have to be 6'6" to see out.
Now, put 74 dirty socks and a banana in a bag and hide it somewhere you can forget. Move the smoke detector within 10' of the toaster.Put a large ice chest in the fridge and only use it, you'll have to take it part way out to open the top with one hand while trying to balance it on your knee with the other.
Now, after all this if your partner of choice gets to feeling frisky, crawl into your rack and remember not to bang your head (or your ass)on all the crap hanging from the over head.
............enough?.....I've got more.....We've been aboard for a year and a half...
