  • Also implied in owning shelter is the idea that I have shelter taken care of. I don't necessarily have to pay rent - something that I might not always be able to pay for in the event of financial emergency.
  • I hate dependency. I was not born a social creature. This is an unfortunate thing to be when it comes to support. People aren't as willing to help, so I gotta do everything on my own. I associate living aboard with independence because living on land has many things to hold you down. Dependency on material and location - huge anchors.
  • I want to minimize and simplify my life. I want to live how humans are meant to live. I want to manage my life with my mind, and with my own two hands, not anyone else's.
  • I want to get away from the herd of sheep and all their bullshit.
ROFL.... that just struck me as funny. Do you think the sheep know they have bull ****?

Re: Why Did You Decide to Live Aboard ?

I was Navy always enjoyed boats. I was watching my rent increase 50.00 every 6 mths. when it reached 850.00 plus wtr, elect sewage, garbage increasing my total for one month came over 1100. Now i live aboard, monthly expenses less than 600. I didn't like my neighbors either, in this marina, out of 100+ i met 2 i didn't like. My physical and mental health became better. No worry's. I already had 1 heart attack, job was nothing but stress. So i enjoy this easy, no stress fresh seafood, and air life style.
