I washed the dishes ... using (for the first time since May 26) both hands! {#War} Walked Weezie (early) and watered. It's hot hot hot which makes me not want to do anything. I think it's time for a cold, adult beverage!

We had a smaller one when we lived in Colorado. We used in in Wyoming, but the opposite corner from the Froms. It is better on the coasts though.

i never thought about this. so, what do you use for an actual address if you can't use the marina? do you have to go to the marina to collect mail, etc?

It's a legitimate question and one of the bigger challenges for live aboards. Even with a PMB, we face challenges with picking up packages sometimes. This isn't normally a problem, but when you have to use that address for Blue Apron (perishable food delivery), it adds to logistics complexity.  Fortunately modern life has all kinds of apps for tracking and notifications.   Sometimes it's all a hassle, but you have to think about what you are getting back, and look at things as challenges rather than obstacles.  

Another concept I'm getting good with - roots or wings. You can have roots and stability, but it limits your range. You can have wings which can take you anywhere, but you are never firmly rooted and susceptible to the winds of influence. You really can't have both.  I've decided that for me, stability is tenuous and actually gives a false impression of safety. I'd rather accept that things are going to change, figure out how to overcome the challenges and enjoy the richer experiences.

What do you do for wheels on land? Do you rent a garage somewhere?

 
We have two primary cars that just get parked at the marina. They are much dirtier than they used to be. I still have a pickup that gets parked at the business now. Its always been a work truck and is the same level of dirty as before. Lots of people use storage units as remote garages, we have one with a lot of stuff that we are working on paring down right now. Long term I'm looking at maybe getting some commercial property with a couple of units. I'll put the business in one and pay myself rent and intend to have both storage and additional space for retail rents. 

Mostly live aboard people just get by with less stuff. There is a checklist that I run through when I buy things now. Do I really need it? Is there a smaller version? What will I get rid of to offset the space/weight?  I'm surprised at how many times I get stuck at that first question and not the last.  It's a good part of my general transition in life - Use things, Love people. If you find you have those noun/verb pairs mixed up, it's a signal of a problem. I found I was hording a lot of belongings in the 'Love' category and not using them. It really doesn't make sense to cherish something but fear using it. Sure they will wear, scratch, dent, break, fade, but you trade that pristineness for experience and memories.

We have a personal mail box for most things (mail and packages). They won't let you use those for driver's licenses because they want the physical residence. There is a database that is checked  and rejects the pmbs and the marina. There are mail forwarding services that run out of a validated address, but there are none convenient to us here.  We just had to go into the DMV and explain the situation to a person. The clerk got it right away and had a fix. We use our slip number as a unit/apartment number. That part took a couple of minutes then we waited an hour to pay.   But now that we are in the system this way, we will be able to renew online. 

The main point is to be sure the .gov gets their sweet property tax money (and they do, there is a use/excise tax on recreational boats) to justify what they provide us citizens. There is also a little bit of validation to be sure that people aren't creating false IDs for nefarious reasons, but it winds up being a hassle for people who want a non-conventional living situation.  The Man(TM) doensn't like it when you step out of their line.
