“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.
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.
