Today we have the second part of this 3-part interview with Andrea and Karl Matson-Dekay, who have been living on their sailboat along with their two kids for the last 5 years.
In case you missed it, yesterday was part 1 of the interview.
Having lived in Southern California all their lives, one day Andrea and Karl decided it was time to leave the rat race and consumer society, and live a more meaningful existence.
So they sold their house, bought a sailboat, and with their two boys, Patrick and Casey, who at the time were 11 and 6, set out to sail. The spent the first 1 1/2 years living in Northern California as they got the boat in order, and for the last 3 1/2 years they’ve lived in Mexico, far from the madding crowd.
It’s a simple lifestyle they lead and a healthier and happier one too.
Interestingly, they have only good things to say about the Mexican health care system, based on their interaction with it. Although they have American health insurance, they have paid out of pocket for the few times they’ve incurred health care expenses. They talk about it in today’s interview, saying that it is affordable and easily accessible.
So watch and listen in to learn all about a family living a Low Density Lifestyle in their own unique way. Once you do, you will get to thinking about how you too can find your own unique way to live a Low Density Lifestyle.
