|Full sun coverage in Cabo|
And, we're mentioned again on pages 113 -115. My photo on page 115 (in the red floppy hat and red shirt) is a perfect example of cruisers coming together - in cruiser co-op fashion - to help each other out. Thanks Alan and Barb on Native Son! Also, my serious commitment to extreme sun coverage while spending a summer in the Sea of Cortez. Too bad I left my signature red, floppy hat on a bus in Mazatlan.
|Hauled out in La Paz|
2009: we averaged $1,450 per month and hardly ever stayed in marinas
2010: averaged less than $2,000 per month to live in Mexico (but this doesn't include a buy/sell boat swap, serious boat repairs for 5 months, and major boat equipment purchases... because that is not a 'cruising' expense - that is a 'what it costs to buy a boat and get it ready for cruising' expense.)
2011: we have averaged so far $2,400 a month. This year we have stayed primarily in marinas, Jim has had surgery, we have made upgrades to the boat, and we've taken a couple of inland trips this year (it's about time!). We are also working on our websites to help generate more income... thus, the marina with internet and things for the kids to do while we're working.
We have our three year cruising expenses itemized here:
