This is for all who venture out away from the nest. I am using a large font because it is easier for those of us beyond sweet 16. I have always been a sailboat kinda guy. I have lived in campers, motor homes and boats. I found that the ultimate survivalist is anyone who can live aboard a boat completely detached from the sight of land. This is where the real survivor in you comes out.
People don't usually think of the ocean like it was a desert but actually a desert is much more easy to survive.
A motor home offers some jostling around so you must prepare your "things" when you drive. But what I experienced in a boat was a constant jostling in a manner similar to riding a bucking horse.
Imagine, every time you hear a weather report warning of a storm, you immediately think that maybe this time you will sink and be left treading water hundreds of miles out at sea in the middle of the night.
Believe me, a breakdown on the highway in some small town is not so bad when you think of your waterborne brothers and sisters daily life.
I welcome this life as I am older now and don't quite have the body for the bucking horse, but I can manage to ride a "walking horse".
We will talk again soon.
