To do it, one begins to ponder certain concerns before they bust a move

big one is: what shall i do to make money to live on?

The answer: what can you do? what are you willing to do? work a day labor job occasionally?

Mow a lawn?
wash a car?

clean a house?
Help someone paint a fence
hoe weeds?

Today, many people have very few skills, technology and disposable goods do not warrant them to obtain many skills.

Pull into any Marina or harbor
walk up to almost any boat owner and ask if there is anything at all that you can do for them to make some bread money,,,

you'll make it, money is the easy item to obtain.

Food is everywhere, as JR said,,, you can always fish, gather shellfish, oysters if you like them,,

When you have little, you do not need very much money to maintain happiness.

no bills actually,,, small ones, but within means.

My skills have allowed me to do some amazing things as i travel,
I've awaken with but Coffee money in my pocket,,

and gone to sleep that night with a fat wallet from applying a skill or two.

yes, anything is PROBABLE,,, not just simply Possible.

In that setting no thoughts cross your mind. Just the here and now. That's the beauty of it, it isn't about 'me' anymore.

I like it! I always thought if I got a sailboat I'd call her Spray Child or Spindrift. My kayak is Ping Wing chuckle.gif

It's beautiful! I'd rather take on a floater that needs interior customization than a new boat where your stuck with an RV with sails. chuckle.gif By the time your finished, it's one of a kind! hi5.gif
