6 Years...

Wow. Another year and the Fritter is still going strong.  Amazing.  When I started this little voyage I had no idea where it would lead and if it would even last, yet here we are, still sailing along, at least digitally if not on the water. It has been fun though, and never seeming to […]

Still Adjusting...

I’ve been out here in the middle of the Pacific ocean now for 6 months.  It’s been quite the interesting experience suddenly living where everyone said I could not.  The weather continues to remain near constantly sunny and mild.  I haven’t been too cold nor too hot.  Have had no need for ac nor heat. […]

Whew!  If you are reading this, in this current dimension in which we exist, congratulations.  You survived 2016.  A lot of people didn’t.  So if you are reading this from a dimension beyond the grave, drop a comment and let us know how things are.  Just curious. It was a helluva year.  If there is […]

In the previous post about Living Off The Grid, Hawaiian Style, I talked at length about the unaffordability of mainstream housing in the islands, at least when it comes to buying something.  Which leaves renting or going with something off the grid and/or tiny.  When one goes off the grid to live, there are three […]

Are You Not Entertained?...

My goodness.  Quite a spectacle wasn’t it?  Lots of theatrics, drama, comic relief, and in the end, everybody lost, except of course for the owners of this country who are laughing at us whilst sitting on their luxury yacht sipping champagne, eating the meat of some endangered species, and grabbing women’s genitals. Let me preface […]

Spam...

No, not the email kind.  A different Spam.  The original.  As Linda mentioned in a recent comment, they love this stuff out here. Um, no.  Just no. Capt. Fritter

The weekend I was dreading never came to pass.  In fact, it was downright quiet and boring.  Nothing unusual happened and things seem to be back to normal. The landlord went back to work as of last Friday, now working an evening shift.  Last Thursday he was still pounding down the beer pretty good but […]

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 […]

Apparently the closing of the marina sale is today, as opposed to yesterday.  Or maybe it takes two days for the two sides to properly lube up each other for the screwing.  Anyways, this article appeared in the Citizen today:  Developer Buys Marina.  It pretty much sums up the deal and does mention that the […]

Seems that many of you believe I should just sell the boat, pack up the cats, and head west…real far west…to the land of pineapples and grass skirts.  Namely, Hawaii.  Well, works for me!  But not yet. Firstly, let me clarify a few things.  For all my grumbling about the cold, cold winter we have […]
