Starchaser-- Yes, I recall the book. For people that want to sail off into the sunset, Annie Hill's way of living also is adaptable to the land. Live as cheaply as you can--a little electricity, if any, and a lot of pluses(beans). Meat costs too much.

denniswbaber-- this is an international forum--meanings of words differ based on the country you are from. I will ask what a word or phrase means and as a courtesy I expect an answer.

My understanding is Budgie is a parakeet.

Down here men's tight swimmers are often referred to as "budgie smugglers". Budgies in this case definitely don't = parakeets! Regards, Richard.

A budgie is a type of parrakeet and I believe are indiginous (sp?) to Australia... They roam in huge flocks and are almost considered a pest. But they are cute...

The Dash

I know this is not in following with this thread, but it does relate somewhat. When considering what one is to do in their life, and how it will be remembered, this poem by Linda Ellis is profound.

Just do it.

I disagree with the 10% and the passive income 2 times your cruising costs.
My wife and I have cruised for over 10 years. We have met a lot of people who’s boat was significantly more than 10%. Some were 100%. They would find odd jobs here and there. They were all interesting people as they were resourceful and resilient.
Half the adventure of cruising is finding a way to cope with an unforeseen circumstance. Instead of shipping in a part and paying more for the courier fees than a part is worth finding something that works locally at a fraction of the cost. The other option is do you really need it, can you do without it.
Working here and there is a good way of meeting and really getting to know the people and their country. After all is that not why we went cruising, to see what was there in a slow relaxed manner not a hectic week spent at some environmentally controlled resort staffed by hand picked people.
That is why I went cruising. If I had waited for the 10% and 2X criteria I would still be working right now. I would only be dreaming of hopefully going to the places I have been. I could only imagine spending 3 months in one remote village with the Kuna Indians in the San Blass. Learning their customs and becoming involved with their ceremonies.
Yes I would feel safer waiting for the 10% and 2x but now that I have gone I am richer for I now know the meaning of FailSafe.

The only people who make money out of “How to make a fortune ... (gambling, real estate, stock market, forex, etc)" scams are the authors of the books, and producers of the seminars, that the suckers pay for.
Wanna make a fortune sailing? Write and sell the “How To make a fortune sailing” book.
