Yes. The screenshot above is real and true. Not edited. One hour ago @dswigle sent me $104 HBD. I transferred it ($104.012 HBD) to savings. I had $0.012 HBD from author rewards.

I currently have a little bit more than $725 HBD in savings. $725.089 HBD.

This is indeed a right (beautiful/wonderful) start to the year. Thank you so much Denise. This is a great contribution towards my goal. I do not even know what to write right now. You are a very generous and one of the kindest person on the Hive blockchain. I am very grateful and very happy to have your (and everyone else's) help and support. Happy New Year.

Some of you may know, because I write about this a lot in various comments on the Hive blockchain, but I still write it down in this post, just in case. I was born and live with multiple disabilities, and nowadays I live under the local minimum wage in Hungary.

My plan is to buy and live on a sailboat to avoid having to pay the high rent and the also high regular monthly bills. A sailboat will get me out of the financial discrimination. With a sailboat, I will be able to live off of my low (approximately $250 USD) pension-like income. I will be able to spend all day every day with my Harris's hawk, and I will also have more time for the amateur radio, because I will not have to worry about the high electricity bills either.

By the way, there is a Facebook magazine, called Sailboats from 1000 EUR, and I regularly check it. For €1000 EUR, it is rarely nowadays, but sometimes there are sailboats for €2000 EUR. Rarely with full equipment, including solar panels, batteries with a charger, inverter, heater, alcohol stove, etc for around. For example this. A sailboat like this would be a dream come true for me on multiple levels. This sailboat is also €2000 EUR.

I am also checking the local (Hungarian) sailboat advertisements. Currently the cheapest sailboat I can find is for 550 000 Hungarian Forint (HUF), which is €1490.51 EUR.

Maybe there will be cheaper sailboats later. Hopefully I will be able to buy a sailboat, if not in this year, then in the next year.

$725 USD is currently €639.95 EUR (let us assume that $1 HBD is $1 USD), so I am indeed getting closer and closer to my goal. Based on the current prices, I currently probably have almost/nearly the half of the price of the sailboat. But if there would really be a sailboat for €1000 EUR, then I currently have more than the half of the price of it.

By the way, if you have a sailboat for sale, then I am willing to offer my HBD for it. Okay, I know. There is a really small chance for this, but who knows.

Either way, I am really very grateful and very happy for every help and support I receive. Thank you so much to everyone. And thank you so much again Denise for your constant/regular help and support. It really feels very good.

Happy New Year to everyone.

Have a nice day and have a nice weekend. All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.

Thank you for the amazing shoutout! This day has been a busy one and didn't check here earlier. I am so happy you saw it and took care of it already. You are really getting closer to your goal and even though you might be tempted to hurry up and buy, you are gathering your money nicely, so I would be tempted to just keep on building it.

I am about the sailboat idea, but, I can understand your need to find a way to make it all work. I know this will happen with your tenacity to keep saving and making it grow.

From the very beginning, I knew I was right about you. You were so much more than what people could see. You have a kind heart.

Happy New Year, my friend! Health, Happiness, and Prosperity for 2022!

First good deed of the year, @dswigle, respect to you!

Oh, Dan. @bluemoon I try to keep them quiet and just push a little something over. People are very gracious in their thanks, I accept it in the manner it is given.

Thank you. Truly.

My pleasure, I enjoy discovering new things...

@dswigle i haven't seen this kind of generosity the year and it is indeed a very much helping hand and love being spread. You are very kind hearted person with humour.
As you work on helping others achieve there dreams ? You has certainly been achieved 🥂

My plan is to buy and live on a sailboat to avoid having to pay the high rent and the also high regular monthly bills.

That's a good plan and I'm sure you'll be able to get one this year, a big thank you to dswigle for such a kind gesture.

Idk sailboats are really a thing, I look forward to you getting one and have a great year 😊😊😊😊😊

@marvinix, I sent you an $LOLZ on behalf of @xplosive
Use the !LOL or !LOLZ command to share a joke and an $LOLZ. (2/2)

Going to save that pizza in my pizza box for later.

Thank you for the new year gifts. You have a beautiful weekend too😊😊😊

You are gaining on your goal. Each month the HBD pays you out more HBD.

That is the advantage of compounding. Now you have 100 more to build upon.

It is how this all works. I hope others are paying attention to what you are doing.

Yes. There are people, who are helping me to reach my goal. Both financially and also with suggestions/ideas. For example @wrestlingdesires one hour ago wrote a good idea. I am very grateful and very happy for every help and support I receive.

Happy New Year.

Have a nice day and have a nice weekend.
All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.

Wow the sailboat plan is really exciting! As a naval architect myself, I’m very curious what you’ll buy in the end! Be aware that the cost of maintenance is not cheap though!

Happy new year!

More and more people say that the sailboat maintenance costs are high. I will think twice before buying anything. Maybe a sailboat is really not the best option, because nowadays I live under the local minimum wage in Hungary.

Happy New Year.

What wonderful soul. It's beautiful what people do on hive here.

I do hope you get your sailboat soon.
I would also try to support your goal 🙏

Dam thats awesome man. Shes a good lady! We gotta keep beastin, glad to see your savings being a beast!

What a wonderful present ❤️ I wonder if those here on Hive in the UK with longboats might know of a temporary solution for you, if you could get to the UK...

@xplosive and @wrestlingdesires Boat slips in the UK are not really cheap. Living in a narrowboat can be cheaper in terms of bills due to the reduced energy consumption. However, there are a number of costs you need to consider; fuel. heating, cooking, and toilet emptying. The boat's main electrical system will be run off batteries which are re-charged when the engine is running - as in a car. It is free to dock on the canals (canal and river trust. See here: https://cruisingthecut.co.uk/f-a-q/

@dswigle is correct. We live on a little narrowboat and we are continuous cruisers which means we don't have a permanent mooring slip. This makes it cheaper for us but you still have to have your canal and river license paid yearly. Insurance. Diesel and cooking gas. And most importantly remember boats need constant upkeep. All that being said it can be done cheaply and it is a great lifestyle. Keep saving there are many good priced affordable boats out there. Feel free to message me about anything, we went into this blind and had lots of help and advice. Happy to be a sounding board for you

You are so awesome. 😀

Thanks so much for the information :) Have you been on a longboat???

That would be awesome, but I currently do not have any personal connetions. I currently do not know anyone on Hive with boats in the UK, nor in other parts of Europe. I have not been in any foreign country so far. Probably I would love the UK. And I could also learn (and improve my) English. The Budapest-London airplane ticket nowadays is affordable with Wizz Air. For example it is 3547 HUF ($10.89 USD) for 2021.01.11. This is just/only an example.

Either way, if there is a temporary or permanent solution suggestion from anyone, I am very much open to it.

Happy New Year.

Have a nice day and have a nice weekend.
All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.

You can follow @scubahead and @millycf1976 they are living on a boat in UK now

Thank you for the suggestion. I wrote to @scubahead under his last post.

I really hope that I will be able to buy/get and live on a boat soon.

Happy New Year.

Have a nice day and have a nice weekend.
All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.

Yes! Follow these people and they will hook you up with others. @millycf1976 writes a lot about it and I didn't realize @scubahead had transitioned over to one. You won't be sorry. Both are awesome individuals and easy to talk to.

@millycf1976 is my wife ;) she is more awesome than I though hehe 😜

Ha!! You know, I forgot about that and when she surfaced up there, I didn't make the connection!! She is so very nice! Lol... but the you always said your wife was. 🤣

hehe she's a keeper for sure ;) very smart, very beautiful but clearly she has terrible eyesight ;)

Pfft! We women know what we like! :)

What a sweet gesture and a great surprise for you! I wish you lots of luck with your savings and the only advice I can give you is sometimes it might be best to wait a little longer, instead of jumping on the very first option you see. As in, make sure the boat you're buying is sturdy and worth it and won't turn out to be a money drain in the end.

I think twice about the sailboat plan, because more and more people say that the "money drain" is the cost of maintenance.

Happy New Year.

I have no idea about sailboats, but I'd imagine maintenance would be a big cost indeed. You'd have to be very careful to check the current state of the boat before buying it. And ofcourse set aside some funds for maintenance later on.

You know, maintanance costs are a thing with homes and cars and such aswell. It's not necessarily a bad thing, it's just something to keep in mind and do some research about. If you need the safety of knowing how much money every month costs, renting a home is a good choice, because the people you rent from are responsible for maintenance costs (atleast in my country). If you're able to set aside enough for unscheduled maintenance, buying something could be cheaper. It's just a lot of research for you to do, because obviously we can't look into your situation and your country's rules and habits.

Wishing you good luck, whatever you choose to do!

Well congrats! She is a real peach that @dswigle is! Very kind and generous too! 😆

Wow! Such a generous gift!

Every little bit adds up and you should be able to pay for the Sailboat soon enough. Just don't buy something cheap and make sure it is in good/decent condition before buying.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Of course I will check the condition of the sailboat, before buying, and I will buy a sailboat only in good condition. Thank you for the support.

Happy New Year.

Have a nice day and have a nice weekend.
All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.
