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.

|cbtucker||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!!|

|CaptainForce||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|

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.]

aeventyr60 - That's right, send a question back to me
Actually what I did yesterday was attend my first sailing class (on land portion). Saturday is the on the water portion. I also put my motorcycle up for sale. And started one of the many fixer-upper projects I need to do on the house, prior to selling/renting (whichever way I go).

Bit of nostalgia. I cruised for a while in the 90s on a boat without refrigeration. I was in the Eastern Caribbean most of the time and the ingredients for a salad esp. fresh lettuce were just not available.
I lusted after a fresh crisp bowl of salad and it was high on the agenda when I hit the Publix supermarket in Palm Beach.
I hit the fresh produce section and had an immediate anxiety attack. Why well I had fantasized about being able to get crisp lettuce but had not thought about which kind. Laid out in rows were 20 or more different types all crisp and dewey.
I came close to a breakdown trying to choose.

|BCJET||Great question great responses. I am working my tail off to get rid of everything to get the boat and move aboard. Thanks for the kick in the pants to hurry up. Dog, Cat, 2 boys and the wife here we go.|
