Can't take a shower without your "shower shoes"
Marvel at an automatic ice-maker at your relatives house
silence wakes you up out of a dead sleep

Silence? for me it was the lack of motion. After living aboard for three yrs I spent a couple weeks off of it and every night I'd wake up and freak out seeing trees out the window. And I didn't have pressure water so I couldn't get used to endless water coming out of the faucet!

Good ones!! My favorites so far are the ones about wifi anchorage (except for us it is 3G wireless anchorages) and Sunday pumpout because they are sooo true.

P.S. I am enjoying reading everyone's own notes while taking a break from...you guessed it...putting away 3 tool bags!! HAHAHA!

You might be a liveaboard if, when driving on the interstate with your family, someone suggests that you turn off at the next inlet!

If your car battery makes it to your boat......YMBAL
If you put foam rubber on a dock gate to quiet it......YMBAL
If the Sun wakes you up....YMBAL

You might be a liveaboard if:

You buy food at the supermarket based on the usefulness of their container

Turning T-shirts inside out is a laundry trick

Girlfriends are petite’.

Cold Beer is part of your reputation.

Friends never buy you birthday gifts…they just take you to dinner.

Books are your constant companion.

The Holy Grail is…having enough hose clamps

If you keep your dirty clothes in a backpack and your laundry soap in the trunk of the car.
