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.

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. 

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.

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.

Chapter 16: Difficult Conversations! Proteus Rising (Travel Life) | Book One (Buy A Boat)

https://youtu.be/Eb2MWt8Qnko

In this episode, we have some difficult conversations with our youngest son about this five-year plan to sell the house, buy a boat, and travel nonstop. We also have to do some deep problem solving regarding where to keep the boat, since we went a little backwards and bought the boat before we sold the house, and we still are attached to 9-to-5 jobs.

Chapter 14: Choices, Repairs & Purging! – Proteus Rising (Travel Life) Book One (Buy A Boat

Nothing like having your boat 100 miles away and get a phone call that the keys are missing and no one can find your vessel!

In this episode Tank decides on which university he will attend as a college football player, we begin the massive job of purging our suburban life, and then make another quick run for boat work, because we were notified they moved the boat, didn’t know where it was, nor could they locate the keys!

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

SV Elli/RV Siggi

Chapter 12: Sailboat Owners! Now What? – Proteus Rising (Travel Life) Book One (Buy A Boat)

In this episode we talk about what we learned going through the process of shopping for and buying a sailboat. We attend the Seattle Boat show as new boat owners, discover a new restaurant and pub, and start making tough decisions, like where the heck we are going to moor a 41-foot sailboat.
