Interesting questiuon because the worlds are so different but you are the same. I tend to accept the difference and not bitch about it. But it's easy to identify differences.
is so easy on land - go to the laundry
and dump the clothes in the washer and then the drier.
Walking the dogs
is a one step process without loading them on and off the dink and the inability for a quick unloading out the front door.
Frozen foods and things like ice cream. While some yachts are big enough to have a freezer
etc. our's is not.
On land we use more clothes, living aboard
in the tropics means a very basic wardrobe. That suits me fine.
I don't miss the winters on board in the tropics. But aboard in the north in the winter is not pleasant to say the least.
I miss internet
access, but I intend to get an air card and bring a laptop
. But right now I associate the net with being on land. My cell phone
has some internet
capabilities but this is not much.
On land I miss having less - what I have aboard. Less to clean, and care for and worry about. On land we accumulate "junk"... so I miss not being an accumulator. On board it has to be useful or it doesn't come aboard or stay for too long. YEA no clutter! Everything is put away and surfaces are clear!. Amazing what you can cook with a few pots.
I miss feeling the slightest changes in the weather
. Ashore we are locked in our interior
controlled climates and have to turn on a weather
report to know what's happening. How weird is that?
I miss the quiet and absence of ambient noise
of traffic and trains. Anchorages
are usually pretty peaceful places even in a blow
