Casino buffets are usually cheap, as long as you don't get sucked into the slot machines on the way in or out...

Once my Wifeís Father passes we may be able to go somewhere further, right now she wants to stay close to home, cause heís been in congestive heart failure for more than a year now, so I canít even get her to go to Mexico and South this year.
But if you remove the hardship of a crossing, then Europe sounds a lot more plausible.
Then there is the limited stay issue too though, that I have not researched at all.

Been shopping a new mainsail. It’s a minefield, but basically a months budget plus.

But it will be so worth it. We bought new sails last year before we left and the difference from the bedsheets we had is incredible.
