As we have met other cruisers on our travels, the one thing that raises eyebrows more than the size of Pegu Club is the fact that we don’t have a refrigerator. “Really???” is the inevitable response, followed by a look in the person’s eyes that says, “Help me. I’m talking to a crazy person.” Well, we may be crazy, but it’s not because we don’t have a refrigerator.
I’ll admit that when we cut the dock lines last September if you had asked me what was the thing we would be most likely to change, I would have immediately replied, “We’ll be adding a refrigerator.” I thought we would find it was too difficult to cruise full time without one. So why didn’t we have one before we left?
