This gentleman had a bag of groceries and was heading back to his boat for the evening. I think when you anchor offshore you have no dock fees, no rent, only groceries and living expense. Sounds like a simple life. I'd probably go crazy without modern conveniences, but I'd still try it for a week or two. I'd get through a few more books and have more time to think about what's important to me. Even if I can't be isolated on a boat, I should probably do that anyway.
