How about a bad injury or major illness? We dont always get injured or sick in convienient places.
I'm sure it can be done, but not by me. I would rather cruise
in a more civilized manner. People like myself cruise
for fun and enjoyment and the wonderment of the world. Survival cruising is not for everyone. From my personal observation of "survival cruisers" they are not as happy as they would like you to think. And those are the ones that stay in places for a while and not drift all of the time. When it comes to living off the bounty of the sea or land for that matter, it takes more work effort than you would suspect.
I think a good analogy would be like tent camping with decent equipment
and minor living off the land as compared to living under the interstate and dumpster diving
Like SVtatia said "but only if you can resist the desire of wine, women and juicy steaks... "
