I've read a couple of other forum topics wherein there are some commentators who, from what I gather, live in Reve, and on meager means.
All I can say is that for those who choose to be skibums or temporarily take up the skibum life, you are going to be living on meager means. Some people have it made, but those people are an exception to the rule (certainly helps to be a trustifarian
, lot's of those around here).
It's just something you should expect, everything has it's advantages and disadvantages. The skibum life is all about riding, and you end up sacrificing material wealth to meet that goal.
