No Schedule, no problems
Can one have too many cheese burgers in Paradise? I don't think so. My lovely wife and I had one for breakfast. Our cooler had lost its cool, so rather than loose the last of our meat, we had it for breakfast. Our boat lacks refrigeration and we promised ourselves we would not be slaves to the ice machine. Because of that we've a tiny cooler, only big enough for a 6 pack of beer. A package of frozen hamburg lasts about 2 days on hot days. We've plenty of dry, canned, and dehydrated food, so we aren't going to go hungry,
With the money saved from not having an expensive refrigerator, we can afford to eat out. Lunch at the marina was a treat. Not that the food was anything special, but the location is fantastic -and I didn't have to cook.
We are taking it easy at the state park. Winds are unfavorable for sailing, being too strong and from exactly the wrong direction. Besides, I want to try out my inflatable kayak around the island, but only once it cools off a bit.
I was talking the volunteer caretakers. They just came back “from the mainland” with a month's supplies. They hate leaving the island as everyone “out there” is crazy. Can't say I blame them. Eventually, my lovely wife and I will have to travel down the coast so she can resupply her meds. It's just something we live with and adapt to.
Thanks to the new iphone I'm not completely cut off from the world. That's nice as I can blog and stay in touch with people. On the other hand, I find myself already caring less about the news from the world.
Here's a parting thought. I noticed a lot of the big boats run their bilge pumps an awful lot. That means they are sinking. Without pumps, eventually they'd completely sink. Tied up to a dock with abundant electrical power, they don't even see it as a problem. It isn't -as long as everything keeps working. Our civilization is like a sinking boat. Only the vast amounts of energy inputs keeps it afloat. Too bad we rely so heavily on non renewable resources to keep most things running. Like the boat owners, too few see it as a problem.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
