Snowbirds live their best life

Are you seeking adventure in your golden years but at the same time have gotten used to your creature comforts:your friends, your routine, your books and, let’s face it, your stuff?

Have you considered SNOWBIRDING?

Snowbirding has nothing to do with sour nor can it be a winged creature.

Snowbirds are individuals (mainly retirees) from colder or northern regions who spend considerable time in warmer places. It is a sort of seasonal human migration.

Most snowbirds particularly retired folk are out of northern and Midwestern US states or Canada and they fly down south for the winter months. Warmer destinations include California, The Carolinas, Arizona, Mexico and the Caribbean.

Quite a few RV parks are so-called’snowbird’ friendly. In reality, they rely on seasonal retired visitors for a big part of their income. It is believed that snowbirds, due to the length of the stay, bring more dollars to the local service and hospitality industry than regular tourists.

Believe or not, there are sites devoted to snowbirds from around the world.

There are some locals however, who do not welcome snowbirding retirees with such open arms.

Not all snowbirds are retirees. A substantial number are business owners with the money and flexibility to invest a couple of months away from home.

Some snowbirds own homes in the locations they migrate , renting them out when they aren’t living there. Popular summer jobs include restaurant and retail work particularly in areas popular with tourists.

There are many benefits of snowbirding or spending your winter in the exact same place every year. You might have met a circle of friends or a regular eating joint and you can develop a routine.

Picking a destination for your snowbird vacation is different from picking any other vacation. You may want a location that is closer to convenient shops and other conveniences. For a short-term vacation this is less of a consideration. The accessibility of a good hospital or church might also be a factor. Perhaps you belong to a golf club, or ballroom dance institution that’s sister clubs in that region. Or perhaps it’s closer to a family member.

For those still in employment or working part-time your company might even let you work out of the local branch office.

There are loads of alternatives to your snowbird stay. Do some research, test out some choices and be sure to enjoy yourself! Oh. . .but don’t go on the beach with speedos. The locals don’t appear to like that much!

Living on a boat

Many people have thought about dropping out of the rat race and retire to a live aboard boat so as to experience the easier life and travel to exotic places. Once you’ve made the choice to live aboard a ship, then there are several more choices that you want to decide on.

Which sort of boat is it, a mono-hull or a catamaran? Just how much money are you ready to invest in the ship and where will you dock it? There will be so much less space than what you’re used to at a house, and storage places will come at a premium. Some boats have more space than others, and before long you’ll find that out when you begin attending boat shows around the country or planet. How much comfort are you willing to give up for a life of adventure on the high seas?

They have a deep keel in order to help as ballast and to keep the boat upright, which is highly useful when you are out on the ocean! But because of this keel, there will also be a great amount of rolling and rocking from side to side as waves hit the boat. If you aren’t used to this movement, you might well wind up with a bad case of sea sickness that will spoil your cruise. Mono-hulls do tend to have more space onboard for living and storage however, because the form of the hull is extremely conducive to that in regard to depth. You will immediately realize though, that the width or beam leaves much to be desired and can be thinner with regard to the complete length.

In my view the hull of choice is the catamaran, which is a much wider or beamy vessel, and a number of the bigger boats are so stable in rough weather that a champagne glass sitting on the galley table will not tip or fall over! By way of example, the typical 50 foot mono-hull may have a 12 -16 foot beam, but a 50 foot catamaran may have a 26 – 30 foot beam! This really results in stability in very rough seas, with a enormous reduction in the side to side rolling of the mono-hulls. This contributes to good visibility above the water, and a nice wide area for eating, cooking, and entertaining yourself and guests. Some models will have the galley found down in one of the two hulls to make more living space above. The sleeping areas, cabins, and heads are located down in the hulls on either side of the boat, and based on the size can normally accommodate up to 4 couples.

The biggest drawback I’ve personally seen with catamaran boats is the”turnaround room” when standing down in the hulls. I always do an”elbow test” when down in the hulls, which means that I am standing with my hands on my hips and my elbows out and then I stand in one spot and turn around in a circle. If my elbows touch or knock anything, it is a really cramped space! Unfortunately, most of the vessels I have examined had this drawback, but I did find one 52 foot South African boat that passed this test. In fact, there was so much living area and storage space on this ship that I call it a”condominium catamaran”! It was pure luxury, with up to six cottages on a usual layout, or for the owner they can have one whole hull just for them that is described as the”owner’s design”. This is the design that really appealed to me, and will provide much closet space and a very private living room for those long voyages with guests. I encourage everybody who is looking for the best vessel to go to as many boat shows as they can so they can personally check all the many factors involved and to see if it’s something you can live on. The Miami International Boat Show will usually have plenty of both mono-hulls and catamarans for viewing and comparison.

Another factor or decision that you’ll have to make is whether it is going to be sail or power. For those people thinking about doing an around the world trip, they may seriously consider buying a sailboat because it’s going to be much cheaper and there really are not as many boats that can carry enough fuel for all those trans oceanic voyages. For those people planning to stay closer to shore or mainly coastal travel might look for power boats, even though the fuel will still be a problem for most trips. There are a few boats that are intended for long range expedition voyages that are less than 55 feet long, and they can carry enough fuel to transit the Pacific or any other extensive cruise. However, for a power boat of this size, be prepared to pay close to a thousand U.S. dollars or more for a brand new ship. By far the vast majority of around the world cruisers will opt for a sailing boat, either catamaran or mono-hull. Catamarans tend to be more expensive due to the size and desirability of them, and they also may have higher marina fees associated because of the widths. In actuality, a good percentage of them may not match in some marinas due to how wide they are, and will need to anchor out in the harbor and use a dinghy to travel back and forth to the coast. This can be very time consuming and tiring, especially when travelling back and forth with many packages of food, beverages, or other items needed to restock the boat. These are the types of things you will need to think about before you decide on and purchase your live aboard ship.

Are you a seasoned sailor or boater, or will you need to arrange for some classes to find out about being on the water? There are loads of Coast Guard Auxiliary or Power Squadron centers around in the U.S. that can provide the appropriate training required to safely operate your new vessel. It’s essential to feel comfortable with the operation of your boat, and take it offshore for small excursions as often as possible before you embark on any lengthy cruise from shore. Be prepared for any circumstance, whether it’s medical or mechanical, and know what to do to fix it. Take a marine mechanic course, since if your boats engine breaks down far out at sea you’ll want to know what to do to correct the problem. You won’t be able to just bring the ship into the nearest shop at there!

There will be many decisions that you’ll have to make before choosing and buying your new boat and probably training you will need to be able to safely operate it, but the benefits of this lifestyle more than outweigh the negatives. You’ll have to be ready for a entire changeover compared to living ashore, due to the cramped conditions and inconveniences associated with boat living. Choose wisely, learn all you can before you buy, and prepare for the time of your life! It’s what you have always wanted, so get out there and take the plunge!

Marry your best friend

Marrying your very best friend is actually the best option, since enough religious attachments would have formed through non-sexual interaction and action with the best friend before sex is introduced.

In most cases when someone has feelings for another, the feelings or feelings are mutual; otherwise those feelings will not be there.

By the time these two have sex, whether premarital or just after getting married having successfully abstained, enough spiritual attachments formed that combined the two souls on the perfect levels in the correct elements and sequence. This way causes the attachments to form the ideal way before sex as was intended for the majority of humans with spirits, other than spiritual attachments having formed only on the sexual level because of sex which was introduces too early.

Oftentimes best friends of the opposite or even same sex, also make obligations toward one another, not realizing or understanding what happens in the spirit world in doing so, which contributes and is to the advantage of a successful life-partnership. If enough time was spent collectively interacting in a nonsexual manner, where the perfect feelings have formed, grown and developed to full capacity, the attachments would form ardently and protected properly with equal and balanced emotions and capabilities that would last a lifetime when commitments are made or vows are taken.

People should fall in love with another’s traits, personality, contributing conducts and talents, etc., yet when people start having”butterflies” around a specific person, they immediately want to share themselves, their spirits or the entire package and joy of sex with that person. When sex is shared in this early stage it destroys the opportunity of growing love on a top level that would be in existence for life and beyond. Having attached the perfect way through the perfect behavior is permanently beneficial to spirits, as love is taken with into the afterlife, only for having experienced being truly loved or having loved another genuinely, which is absolutely not the case with sex!

The advantage of marrying one’s best friend is that one is 100% sure one is loved for the right reasons and not for good sex, one’s genitals or sexual infatuation that most definitely would ware off after a while.

Sex can never cause souls to combine or unite (form religious attachments) on another degree, other than the sexual level, such as the”Love degree” or the”Mental/Intellectual degree” or some of the other potential levels where spirits could attach to form a unification.

To safeguard one’s own soul it’s ideal to have monogamous sex with only one partner throughout life, which would cause one’s soul to be and stay clean from religious contamination to wind up in the right place in the afterlife and to have the safety of true love, but more importantly to enjoy one’s life while in a life-partnership.
