...because paying more for what's needful is just plain stupid
Accurate for a worldwide average but far far cheaper if hanging in the 2nd and 3rd world. We live on about 600-700/mo. in Mexico and we pay rent to boot as part of that. Running a way simplistic boat would drop maintenance as well. And on the hook. Some folks stay in places like Bocas del Toro for years.
This is always one of the stupidest questions people ask. It's like how long is a piece of string?Q: How much does it cost a month to live aboard? A: How much you got?
