I suppose if one was sufficiently motivated, a good kayak
, a tent, and a fishing
rod could travel a long way. I was surf fishing
off the beach in sandy hook NJ and watched a couple of guys paddle over the horizon into the atlantic...They might have turned home for dinner but who knows.
I'll have to look up the pardy's books
. I was not familar with them. Sounds like worthwhile reading.
I thought Krakauer was very kind in " Into the wild". Probably in deference to the parents and the sister.
I wonder how austere you can get in North America? As I ponder retirement
and the desire to cruise
, I think solar
and perhaps wind
power to charge batteries etc and maybe a watermaker
would keep one pretty self sufficient. Beans and rice are cheap
and the ability to catch fish
, crab, would help. Follow the weather
..and the geese?
While I've had full income
, I've enjoyed stopping at a nice marina, with hot showers and a pool, with an occasional anchor
out. On a fixed income
, I will have to reverse that pattern and anchor
out much more, and be more self contained.
I suppose that where there's a will there's a way.
