Aloha From Maui...

Yes, I am just as surprised as you are.  To semi quote a famous old rock band, “What a long strange trip it has been.”  But here I am, at the other end of the world, sitting on an island thousands of miles from the mainland, and enjoying every minute of it. “So, what happened.”, […]

Yesterday, as I was sifting through my emails, social media, and other sites of entertainment, I got the following message from Charlie on the Fritter Facebook page.  His questions were of the type I suspect others may have.  So rather than answer him direct in FB, I told him to stop by here and I […]

You can tell when it’s quiet around this rock when I don’t post anything for more than a couple of days.  With the bikers gone there won’t be too much happening until the big party in late October.  You can tell it’s already taking hold.  All the storefronts which are normally empty all year get […]

Talk of getting a new computer brought up a comment from Linda, which in turn gave me the inspiration for this post.  See how easy it is sometimes to write this stuff?  Anyways, If you are like me and tend to upgrade your computing items, be it desk tops, laptops, tablets, or phones every so […]

One of the things I have been trying to do, with no success, is trade off some webwork in exchange for some sort of living arrangement.  Build a website, build an app, computer consulting, things of that sort, hopefully in exchange for some small habitat for a short term period.  Recently I ran an ad proposing […]

I have the Free Spirit up for sale.  It’s currently on eBay as well as Craigslist.  It’s been a hard decision to make about this but I really need to fall back and regroup right now.  Selling the boat will give me some cash reserve to work with.  I have arranged to rent out a neighbor’s […]

This is what I hate about owning stuff.  The buying and especially the selling part.  People just get plain stupid when it comes to a sales transaction. So I run an ad on Craigslist, listing the boat and specifically stating in the ad that I am looking to trade for a 22′ ODay or Catalina. […]

Well, the holiday is over with and for all intent and purposes, we are into the summer season here in Key West.  The stormy weather has started with the daily thunderboomers and the media is all aflutter with the latest predictions of a very busy hurricane season, sponsored by Home Depot, Eveready Batteries, and anyone […]

Erin, my newest stalker commenter asked those very questions recently and rather than simply stalk back, I decided to condense my answers into this here post. What exactly does it take to live on a boat?  Well: Do you have the courage and fortitude to face the unforgiving forces of nature?  Too risk life and […]
