“How are things in civilization?”

“Still obsessed with material things.”

That's a conversation overheard at a dinghy dock. It's different out there on the water. I miss it.

We met some of the most interesting people. There's a big difference between those out on the water for a day and those living the life. Living on the water for any length of time requires a certain mindset. These people have figured out how to step out of the regular 9 to 5 existence -maybe for a few weeks, or maybe even forever.

For the last few days I've been back to land life. Sure, there are perks. It's easy to hop in a car and run down down to the store. My lovely wife and I have been to two movies since coming back.

Those things are nice, once in a while, but the price is high.

Of course, once we are back home, we'll be in the woods once more -not exactly a civilized place. However, it is a good place to plan our next adventures.



  1. Sounds like the best of both worlds.

  2. How's things in civilization? Why there are still wars and rumors of wars. Nothing has changed much in thousands of years.

    1. Sadly, that's true. Sorta makes civilization look like a bum deal.
