Hiding from the virus :-)
My wife was in Anchorage helping with the home-birth of my 12th grandchild. She made it back without any undue drama, so my world is right again. The weather has been running 80F to 85F with a light breeze so we have been exploring more of the shoreline while she self-quarantine's for two weeks after flying Anchorage to Seattle to Dallas. I am working from home and just drop shipping all orders.
If I stay off of the throttle, I have a fuel burn rate of 2 to 2.5 GPH at 15-16 mph with my 25' pontoon boat. Gas is priced at $1.59/gallon so I stored a spare 75 gallons (laced with Stabil) spread between the shed, the boathouse, and the shop. So for me, this is low-cost attitude correction!
This last one was taken from our dock while backing out of our slip for morning coffee on the lake. A cold front is blowing in today so my boating will be limited for the next week - need to get while the gett'n is good :-)
Yes, I would love to live in a more remote area and have some acreage - but that requires funding that I do not have. For most of us, it is all about what you are willing to compromise. At this stage of my life, I have scaled-down and I need low-cost living located within reasonable reach of major medical facilities - just in case.
I always have more questions than answers. That's the nature of life.
