Cost to not cruise - May 2014

For May we had a few extra costs in Travel, I purchased my tickets to fly back to Viking Star and see how she is doing.  I also have planned a few tasks:
  • Finish re-installing the Kubota DC Generator
  • Repair two rot-spots I found, and look for others.
  • Apply a coat of Cetol to the bright work
  • Re-pickle the water-maker
  • Re-prepare the boat for another winter alone :-(
  • Anything else I find.
Will be back there in August for a bit over a week.  Might get some other visiting in, but not likely.

Miscellaneous is a bit higher this month, as this is where we are putting stuff into that is more 'household' vs. 'boathold'.   OK, about it for this month.  After we get a few more months under way will be interesting to look at Land vs. Sea averages, but I think we need a few more dirt-months before we can do that.


And now here is the standard explanation: If this is your 1st time looking at costs, and want some more background on why we are reporting what it costs to not-cruise on a cruising blog - well, we are taking a break by moving back to Minnesota to help out Kristi's folks.  And we thought it would be interesting to be able to compare our costs on Land vs. on Sea., see more here:

For reference here is a summary of what it did cost us to cruise last year:
