FL has been a long time hippie choice. It's easily more comfortable temperature wise than up north. There's seafood and stuff to eat. Maybe some monkey meat, fruit and the occasional alligator for fibre. But it's sinking.

There's an awful lot of people moving from the east coast to the west coast too. It's a different atmosphere here socially, not to mention less humid. Besides, we have nice buses.

You've probably looked at those future maps showing flooding. Actually most of Oregon gets covered with water if those maps are true. Funny how those soothsayers never give dates.

That's why I'm building the floating bus. I need a conning tower and periscope.

Even if the ocean levels rise a hundred feet, I'm still ok this far inland, and my property value will likely quadruple!

If you plan it right you should be able to end up with new beachfront property.

My place could end up being part of a dam reservour, or in my case a damn reservour. It's to feed water to the Willamette Valley. For the greater good.

If you need insurance, we had luck with Good Sam. Here is the agent's email.

Bethany.Chan@ngic.com

She was very helpful. We did have to supply photos of the bus, outside & inside. We got RV insurance, just liability, for $785 a year.
Not the cheapest I've seen but we could afford it and were happy to get it on the road.

Build a barge? It would be much easier to buy an old barge, kind of like buying an old bus instead of building one from scratch.

I also had a fantasy about having a house on a barge with a garden and yard many years ago. I'm actually not very nautical minded.
