. i've pretty much lived that lifestyle for the last 5yrs or so. i always thought if i maintained $50 per week income i could survive and for most of that time i did, yachties tend to barter more than pay cash for computer repairs
or training, when no expense is involved. i've helped out plenty who paid with home brewed beer
or spirits and other worthwhile goods, fresh bread is a favourite.
five months ago (to the day,tomorrow) my uninsured yacht & i were shipwrecked, i hitched 3500kms picked up a programming job, bought myself a new yacht and next month leave this mine site for the yacht's maiden voyage and my return to bumming around the world fixing computers
, on my $50/week budget
attitude maybe, but i would have to be extremely extravagant to need $2k/month, more extravagant than i've ever been, even when earning over $20k/month (not now).
