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

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. Now as constant travelers, we split our time between Sailboat and RV. This YouTube series documents all of it, from the dream to the realities. Come with us as we venture from land to sea and all around the world. #proteusrising

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. #proteusrising

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 Eight: The Deal! Proteus Rising – Book One

In this episode we make the trek more than 100 miles from our homestead to where the Bayfield 36 is on the hard, to take a second look, and then make the offer if the gut-check is right. Along the route there are some roadtrip shenanigans and we take in the sights and wildlife all around us. Then it’s time to pay some bills.
