Has living on a boat changed your life?
Would love to know Lee!!!
Thank you for asking, Aley! I actually do have a hub planned for this topic one of these days behind four others I'm developing right now. So my answer will be brief--FOR NOW.
The number one change has been moving from a remote area in New Mexico to a marine environment close to downtown Seattle. I've never lived in a city and didn't think I'd like it, but I do!
Next is the day to day life on the boat itself--fewer possessions, no freezer or oven, complicated systems for heat and cooking. It's sometimes frustrating, but I'm getting used to it.
Though life in Seattle is more formal in ways I'm not used to--harder to start up a conversation sometimes, for example, life aboard is very informal and friendly. Our marina is like an extended family in many ways. People are friendly and interested in the boat wherever we go. I'm spoiled because of the unusual and historical nature of Argonaut II--I get lots of attention and compliments.

I could quit all together and not feel bad, but I wanted to add as many as possible because I'm going to...

Since things have kind of been changed up has anyone else felt the sting of low views...and longer updating times? Is this just another lull and things will pick back up or do we need to work harder to get more views in?

But, mainly because I am bored, sad, and need something to do.I have been living in northern Michigan with my mother for the past 2 years, taking care of her after the death of my...
