    Very interesting! Hello from the crew of Oh,My! We moved aboard on November 7 and are hoping to leave the New Bern area this weekend for a two year or more cruise. Have not budgeted as of yet as we had much to get done but now that the biggest expenses are behind us we can get down to really trying to live on a budget. I appreciate you sharing your breakdown and budget requirements...we will have to include health insurance and some prescriptions in ours! We don't "do" Georgia anymore as we leave Charleston heading outside for St. Augustine but will watch for you out on the seas in the future. We plan to mosey along as this is our first "no schedule--we have retired--cruise" and will leave FL for the Bahamas and on down the islands in a month or two as we are waiting on passports. Glad you had family time for the holidays.
