Sitting here in Boot Key Marathon FL with my fellow boat
scum people watching snow and ice going on up north on my cell phone
. My wife is still staying up in Jacksonville
with daughter doing PT etc. and we think we will be able to move on beginning of Feb.
Did grocery, beer
and supply runs boat
wise as normal. But there was Thanksgiving and supplies at 2 locations. I think this month had more stuff in the general category other than food
Boat costs were kind of low. But considering all I did was replace a couple of head
hoses and some real small “stuff” it still added up to reasonable money
. I have a theory that boat costs for most cruisers/boat owners is more than they think because they don’t note all the $5-15 costs each month.
refill and gas for the dinghy
Dining was pretty low (record low by $0.82). Don’t like eating out by myself and haven’t fallen so far down the cruiser ladder to sit in a bar drinking yet. So, it mostly is happy hour get togethers after some other cruiser thing like dominos.
Entertainment includes going to a movie
and an app cost.
Communication was our cell phone
plan plus InReach charges for the trip down from Mississippi
Marina costs were a month’s mooring
in Marathon/Boot Key.
of course are doctor and PT visits and copays for wife’s shoulder. Probably should have included around $75 of the transportation costs as medical
as they were just Uber trip to go to PT.
Transportation and travel costs were a rental car/gas for Thanksgiving week and Uber trips for PT/doctor visits.
It is almost Christmas
and we still buy gifts.
