Boat Business in San Diego, North Bend, and Anacortes | Travel Life with Proteus Rising | Ep. 29

All the stuff you have to do to go from land to sea and all around the world…

https://youtu.be/TGOqDTDw4x4

We bought a blue-water sailboat; sold our house; bought an RV and now we’re going from land to sea and all around the world. This is our journey.

Not all boat hooks are made equal.

In this episode (29)… This episode shows you the massive amount of multi-tasking it takes to make this From Land to Sea and All Around the World Dream come true. Casz works on Operation Curb Appeal with the assistance of Tank; while Greg has to go take care of business in San Diego and gets a little maritime fun in while he’s there, then it’s back to SV Elli in Anacortes, where there’s a lot of work and a little bit of hassle.

Special thanks to Alein’ Whalers, who let us use their music in their video. Check them out here: https://aleinwhalers.bandcamp.com/releases or on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClk5nCOAiMEwQ1-NbkPvd_A

Getting A New Berth & Prepping to Sail to Seattle | Travel Life with Proteus Rising | Ep. 28

https://youtu.be/_WUk2SfarFs

In this episode (28)…

With SV Elli safely in the water, we start to move onto our boat and ready her for sailing to her future home port in Seattle. However, we have to stop Shake-Down Cruise Prep to experience Senior-Year Baseball with our son, but then we’re back at it when we discover the head has stopped working.

The long hard winter of work is over and we’re finally getting SV Elli off the hard, into the water, and to a temporary slip.

Ch-ch-changes…

New season of episodes begins tomorrow!

Hello all! In a little over 24 hours the premiere of our second season of episodes begins. You will note that on YouTube all the videos have shuttled the Book and Chapter naming conventions. We’re just going with episodes from this point forward, because we realized our cleverness was getting in the way of people being able to find our videos on the YouTube platform.

Regardless, we’re still bringing you each painful step to change our lives from being anchored to a sticks-and-bricks suburban lifestyle to one of constant travel via sailboat and/or RV. We’re hoping, too that our time off to learn more about the technical stuff of creating videos and producing them will provide you with a more enjoyable experience as you follow this crazy journey of ours.

We hope that you’ll tune in for the premiere tomorrow — Noon (Pacific), Thursday, Feb. 27, 2020! We’re now a little less than three years from the moment that the seed for this life was planted and oh what a little tree of joy we have now.

With that we want to encourage you to find what your dream is and do what you need to do to make it happen. Start now. Start small. Just start. Keep true to your path and it may lead you to all kinds of wonderfulness.

We’ve lost count of the beauty we’ve seen since starting this journey. This sunset includes Venus, a Waxing Crescent Moon, and the wondrous landscape of Tuscon Mountain Park.

Peaceful sunrises & sunsets,

Greg, Casz, Kola & Sprite

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?

In this episode (Chapter 22)… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rG9AfDqYSPk&t=399s

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.
