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

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 15: Snowy Boat Jobs! Proteus Rising (Travel Life) Book 1 (Buy A Boat)

In this episode, we are fighting geography and weather to push forward to get our gal in the water as soon as possible. However, each job reveals more work to do. There may be cussing. There may be beer. At least there’s some fun.

The Pack That Comes Together…Is Stronger!

Kola and Sprite are so glad you’re here!

Happy May Day! Spring is in the air! It’s a time of change and growth. And we’re feeling that given today marks our official launch of our Patreon Page. We weren’t sure when we were going to do this or even if we should, but when some folks elbowed us and said, “Hey, why aren’t you doing this?” We figured it was time.

Right now, even as our page numbers are small, we plan to put out some bonus footage right here frequently. We’re targeting once a week, but travel plans can sometimes inhibit that; also, episode production is priority. Kola and Sprite will tell you that long walks are also a priority — whether they be in the forest, the beach, or up a mountain.

We’d love to get to know you better, which was the number one motivator for us to create a Patreon community. Tell us about yourself via message here or at YouTube or via any of the social media platforms (we’re on instagram, twitter, and facebook). Why are you following us? Why did you join our Pack? What’s your dream?

In the meantime….

Peaceful sunrises and sunsets,

Greg, Casz, Kola & Sprite

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.
