Chapter Ten: Taking the Helm – Survey & Sea Trial Part 2! Proteus Rising – Book One

Even feeling the start of a virus, this guy was not going anywhere that wasn’t on this boat.

In this episode we continue our adventures in Anacortes, Washington as we put our intended sailboat through the paces of a detailed Survey & Sea Trial; however, the day is thwarted with a adrenaline hangover with a touch of flu. More importantly, did this Bayfield 36 pass the test?

Chapter Six: Falling In Love! Proteus Rising – Book One

We’re finally starting to get into a rhythm with this vlogging. Those that are following us on social media know that things are progressing on our #fiveyearplan, so that’s why there’s a bit of time between episodes. But, like we just noted, we’re getting into a rhythm and the next episode is already in production. Woohoo!

In this episode, we finally get a chance to see The Bayfield 36 we were totally geeking-out on in Chapter Five. We have a good time in Anacortes, Wash. and have great hope for our #fromlandtoseaandallaroundtheworld future. Our son has an epic football season, and starts to get acceptances to colleges and some recruiting looks as a two-sport athlete. But plans go a bit sideways with money to purchase any boat, let alone this one.

Watch and see how we handle it all.

Chapter Five: On The Gerbil Wheel – Goodbye Chickens; Hello Bayfield 36! Proteus Rising – Book One

 

Did you miss us? Sorry for the delay; our summer has been jam packed of everything but video editing. But back at it with this episode and the next is already in production!

We feel so blessed that you’re still coming back for more. We adore you, dear viewer, for being excited about our adventure. Or, maybe you’re just waiting for us to fall overboard. Regardless, you’re here. Thank you.

In this episode, the emotion of having a dream and working towards it kind of gets to us and we slow down the boat search. But, then the universe has other ideas. In between we tell you what kind of boat we want and why.

By this time you recognize we’re pretty honest and simple folks, but like to have fun. Hope you’re having fun watching this. Although the video story is months and months behind, you can keep up with our real-time updates on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Chapter Four: Operation Distraction! Proteus Rising — Book One

You’re still coming back for more. Man, we adore you for being excited about our adventure. Or, maybe you’re just waiting for us to fall overboard. Regardless, you’re here. Thank you.

In this episode, Casz works really hard to distract Greg from his crush on the Pearson 35. We spend a lot of time in the car. Or getting beer. In between looking at lots and lots of boats. Realize we need better filming gear, but plod on through the end of good sailing season here in the Pacific Northwest, all the while searching for “The One,” who will be our live-aboard sailboat.

Best of all we realize we really dig the sailing community. Good people all around.

By this time you recognize we’re pretty honest and simple folks, but like to have fun. Hope you’re having fun watching this.

Although the video story is months and months behind, you can keep up with our real-time updates on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Á votre Santé
