Re: Civilization

If I knew of a deserted Island (and I'm not saying (or admitting) I do), I wouldn't tell anyone...

You were asking about being able to "live off the land". Those islands all have seasons for critters, and you will need a guide as an alien.

Ate a lot of free oysters, mussels and even some deer drownded some how so we even ate a little deer meat LOL But back then if ya even saw a Costie, Ya would be super suprised!! Let alone a cruiseing boat !! Don't think I saw a Fish and Game except at the opening at YakcaTat for crab in the early 60s !! O well the world is shrinking !! Im glad I got to see it then !!

I think some of you have got the wrong idea, I was not talking permanently living away from anyone or where, just trying to do a self contained trip where one would not have to goto port for supply's or WHY....
If any of you have where was it? How long was it? Would you do it again?

The folks that are moving into repossessed homes and squatting are, in many cases, filing adverse possession claims claiming the banks, as owners, have abandoned the property. Those folks invariably lose and get kicked out.
I think if you can show proof that you have paid the taxes on a property for a certain amout of years it can be claimed ...what i was told ?...DVC

Re: Civilization

I believe some people do go cruising "just to get away from it all".

It is easy to tell them apart in the anchorage - they are unfriendly individuals in their derelict boats.

Re: Civilization

Chagos?

You need a pre-aranged permit. It is full of cruisers. I bet there are some fees. There is no food store...

I'd rather aim for an uninhabited atoll somewhere. However, most uninhabited atolls either have no pass or no potable water ...

It is not easy to become a Robinson anymore!
