Our Book One – Buy A Boat, comes to a close with this episode, Chapter 25: A Dinghy and A Dinger!

Who we are: We are Casz & Greg, empty nesters, Gen Xers, Adventure-Seeking Explorers, along with our two pups, Kola & Sprite. We bought a sailboat, sold our house, and bought an RV.

Come with us as we venture from land to sea and all around the world. #digitalnomads

We left the chains of the corporate-sponsored suburban lifestyle, said goodbye to our mortgage, the golden handcuffs jobs, and are living a life that lets us see the world on our own terms. #alternativeliving

Chapter 24: Divide and Conquer! Proteus Rising (Travel Life) Book One (Buy A Boat)

In this episode (Chapter 24)…

We’re back at it again. Boat work. But also home improvement as we get the house ready to sell. It was time to divide and conquer. Greg goes to the boat while Casz stays behind at the homestead getting its curb appeal up to FOR SALE snuff. Can we kick it into high gear?

After a respite with oysters and the mermaid room in a local BnB, we arrive at this episode, where the battle of the portlight continues. We discover something unexpected, but are thrilled that it wasn’t what we were expecting.

Chapter 21: Portlight Hell

In this episode (Chapter 21)…

We try to get back some time spent driving by staying in Anacortes so we can finally get the engine ready for splash day, and replace the worst portlight on SV Elli. Things don’t go as planned, or course, or it wouldn’t be #boatlife

Chapter 20: Drive, Boat Work, Repeat! Proteus Rising (Travel Life) – Book One (Buy A Boat)

In this episode…

We settle into a pattern of drive, boat work, drive, repeat! All during some hellacious winter weather. Spring is fast approaching, but not soon enough, even though baseball season is in full swing. We are getting to know SV Elli better and finding all kinds of things to “tighten up” on her. Additionally, we’re learning we have a long way to go to “lighten up” on the household front.

Chapter 17 – No Room In The Marina! Proteus Rising (Travel Life) – Book One (Buy A Boat)

In this episode, we learn that we’re behind the power curve in finding a marina for SV Elli so we can finish our refit. Finding space in the greater Seattle area, which is called the recreational boating capital of the nation, is proving to be a seemingly impossible mission. So we also start to look for moorage up near Vancouver, B.C. where we’ll be cruising extendedly for a few years while our son is at University. We also update you on our plans and introduce you to a couple of our sailing mentors.
