Well, as I am just stepping off, I’ll bite.
Mail: I’ve signed up with Dockside Mai
l. It’s a bit spendy but we’ll see how it goes. My bank mailed a change of address acknowledgement to both the new and old addresses which I received yesterday. Dockside Mail has yet to ping me. Maybe I misunderstand how it works yet.
Almost everything can be “paperless” nowadays. But even the paperless services seem to send me a lot of paper!
Permanent address: This has a lot of tax and legal
implications, including where you vote. My family
still has the ancestral farm to which all the nomadic members of the family
have always registered their vehicles, drivers licenses, etc. So have I.
It seems to me that those who don’t have a clan with ancestral property ought to form one. It’s good to have a piece of dirt to where you can retreat when everything goes dark. Even if it’s just a flop-house. Although the budget
form of this is probably a PMB.
is a bit tricky. I have been a long-time member
of DAN and have now signed up for their travelers insurance. It’s important to work
out the differences between their membership
and insurance products. But they do not cover chronic illnesses like aging, disease, cancer, etc.. For USonians, that means you also need Obamacare (if it survives). But the problem with that is that it only covers services near your “residence.” Meaning you have to fly “home” for treatment. Or even a check-up. So that’s something to consider back in the “permanent residence” step.
Or just limit your cruising to locations where medical
treatment isn’t controlled by criminal organizations.
