Of course if my wife and children died I would not have much trouble hopping off the grid, or a dock, or maybe even a bridge.

thanks for that, (not)
the story is the phonix from the ashes, not deap depresion.
the idear was to make a home for insperational stories.
to give us something to think on as we wait for summer to arive and to cast off.
shorly this is not the only story (fact or fiction) out there.

With a boat, the space is definitely finite and luckily, most of the furniture is built in so you really don't need much to fill it up. So it actually forces you to keep it simple and minimal. That is one of the main reasons that turns me on about boats. And if you can generate your own water and power, even better!!

The story is what keeps me going until I get my own boat.

I am afraid most people can't.

Generating your own water and power are two very costly alternatives to tapped water and dock electricity. They are not really good alternatives for someone who is trying to survive in well under very basic conditions.

Unless the story is a prank as it generates 404 on my browser.

Cheers,
